Dog friendly

If there is space on the patio they are dog friendly. I loved the BLT guacamole sandwich featured on DDD. Substituted oasted Brussels sprouts for fries. Nice local draft beer.prices boulderish though higher for a sandwich than elsewhere

Yes the Crepes are great and you get to see them made! Prices are reasonable and service is good. They have a chalkboard of daily choices and a quite large regular menu that includes more than crepes. I enjoyed a bacon lettuce avocado sandwich that had just the right amount of crunch and cream for texture. Tasty too. Came for... More

So just sit at the counter. Watch them in the kitchen rocking out the best hash with eggs on top in town. Local feel and flavor. Craig will make sure you leave full and happy

Stopped in with two friends and because it was crowded (and huge waits at nearby competitors) we ate at counter. Served by gentleman -- I believe he said he was a co-owner -- who was extremely personable, friendly and attentive. Completely enjoyed food (e.g., my eggs with corned beef hash), and prices seemed reasonable.

We passed and decided to stop. Great beers on draft and the salad was fresh, big and very good, I would go back.

Made to order and delicious. It is a colorful and lively place with a New Orleans vibe inside, there are some tables outside also. The food is freshly prepared and very tasty.

We come to Boulder pretty frequently and have had good experiences in the past at Foolish Craig's. However, my husband and I stopped by for dinner tonight and while we were seated right away, it took about 15 minutes for our server to realize we were in his section "no one told him". From there we maybe saw him two... More

We were spending a week in Boulder and our first day we went to Foolish Craigs after a stroll down Pearl Street. Loved the jumbly atmosphere, reminded me a bit of Mellow Yellow in Hyde Park in Chicago (they also are known for crepes) but more modern (except for the 70's music) and brighter, and there's a bar. DH ordered... More
