What makes a JL Beers burger better than the rest?

“Our fresh hamburger is hand-pattied and made to order,” Co-owner Lance Thorson said. “It’s topped off with our own seasonings and sauces, as well as additional fresh ingredients. Lastly, it’s all happily nestled in our pillow-soft bun.”

What menu item do you think more of us should try?

“Our Humpty Dumpty Burger® has been a staple since the day we opened, but if you’ve never experienced one, now is the time,” Thorson said. “It’s a simple-but-delicious burger with a fried egg and cheese on it. I recommend adding our fresh ground peanut butter or bacon to it too.”
