About 9 months ago we attempted to have lunch at JL Beers in Burnsville, MN. After 20 minutes of no service we left and went to Lucky 13, also in Burnsville and enjoyed our lunch immensely. Fast forward to a second attempt at lunch at JL Beers. We actually had service, though not the most personable, so here is our take on the food:

JL Beers really only offers burgers, fries and beer. They do have few odds and ends on the menu for those not wanting a burger, but for the most part your choices are limited

I ordered the Totally Slawsome Burger made with coleslaw, bacon and BBQ sauce for $6.79. Decided to add a side of fries with jalapeno cheddar for $3.79. It wasn’t a long wait for either because there were not that many people dining. The burger was a burger, the slaw was actually nice and crunchy and the BBQ sauce came out of a bottle! The fries had NO jalapeno cheddar anywhere near them. They were just your basic salted string fries. I guess the server should have written down the order!

My husband had looked at the menu prior to going so he knew he wanted the Mt. Mushmore burger and loaded fries. $6.79 and $5.49 respectively and a tall glass of lemonade that actually was a cold bottle of lemonade that you poured in a glass yourself! He was not keen on the teriyaki sauce used on the burger that also had sauteed mushrooms and Swiss cheese nor was he impressed with the loaded fries. The idea of loaded fries is to have a tater tot or jojo size fry loaded down with the goods. Something hefty to take the weight, but, again, it was shoestring fries that got buried.

As a side note the server offered the couple next to us a sample of whatever beer they wanted to try before they ordered. Not us! The table behind us and the couple next to us each got a souvenir postcards to take home. Not us! Take away from this experience is we probably won’t give it another try.

It has seemed like a long winter though spring begins next week. With the Fish Fry Season upon us it was time to venture out and give it a try. Last year we went to Morgan’s Farm to Table one Friday evening and had the All-You-Can-Eat fish fry for $15. It was amazing and obviously had seconds. So, this year we went for lunch for their All-You-Can-Eat fish fry for $15. Not so much.

Both of us couldn’t wait to¬† have the fish fry Friday again. The memory of what we ate last year during the Lenten season was a very fond one idea. We arrived for lunch with plenty of tables available. Our waiter took forever to take out order and we waited forever for the platters to arrive. This was was so different than the other times we have eaten at Morgan’s.

Now doesn’t this look Yummy? All hot and crispy just out of the fryer. Let me tell you it was hot but not that crispy. The fish was falling apart inside and the batter was a little mushy. Oh, such a disappointment from the memory I had. Needless to say I did not have All-I-Could-Eat.

I will store the memories away and try somewhere else to quench my fish and chip craving. I know a place in Vancouver, BC that serves up some great food consistently.
