What makes for a good french fry?

"We source all of our own potatoes, cut them fresh to order, and cook them in cholesterol free soybean oil," said JL Beers co-owner Lance Thorson. "Once cooked, they are a beautiful white french fry packed with flavor."


What sets you apart from your competitors?

"We have a lot of our own proprietary products and ingredients that you simply can't get anywhere else," Thorson said. "All of our hamburgers and French Fries are fresh and made to order."


Besides ketchup, what should people try on their fries?

"First off, we have a wide assortment of seasonings that can be added for no additional cost - sea salt, Cajun, jalapeno cheddar, BBQ or parmesan garlic," Thorson said. "Secondly, we make all of our own dips including 'R' Dip, cajun lime, ranch, BBQ ranch, chipotle, jalapeno ranch, and most notably our famous beer cheese dip. With all of these seasonings and dips, our guests have numerous options to take their taste buds on a little trip."
