Was looking for a quick bite to eat and was heading to the “Nordeast” part of Minneapolis. If you want to know where to eat, ask a “Nordeaster “ for recommendations and you’ll be taken care of. The problem was, now what? No really, the selection was that good! I ultimately decided I wanted a burger and went to a place that has only been open for the last couple of weeks. JL Beers was my decision and it was an excellent decision if I do say so myself.
Sat at the bar by my lonesome self and lucky for me, an employee who happened to be off that day was sitting next to me and supplied me with all kinds of recommendations. I ultimately decided to go with the Philly Cheese Burger – grilled peppers & onions, provolone cheese atop their famous burgers and between their signature bun. If you want “just a burger”, you won’t be happy here. If you want an outstanding burger and easily one of the best burgers you’ll have, then JL’s is a place you need to visit. Outstanding flavor and easily one of my all-time favorite burgers!
They also made hand cut fries and fresh cut chips right in front of you. While I didn’t order any during this first visit of mine, I will be paying them another visit or 2 or 3 or more and trying some of these fries and chips as well as some additional burgers. They also have plenty of beers on tap to choose from with an excellent selection of local brews as well.
There’s one thing daddy likes and that’s burgers and beer and I thank god all mighty for those burgers and beer (big ol’ burgers and beer). I’m looking forward to my return to JL’s and this time with my wife so she can experience the awesome burgers JL’s is pumping out!
