Amazing Burgers

I enjoy a really good burger, but I can make a mean burger at home, and I don't generally care for fast food burgers, but today for Mother's Day, I surprised my husband when he asked where I would like to go for lunch. Crave's burgers did not disappoint. I ordered the New Mexico Relleno Burger, and... read more

Me and my wife were visiting Colorado Springs, and my local friends recommended this place for our first night. When we arrived, the place was packed, a good sign of a good place for a good eat. When we ordered, and having my first bite of this burger, this became the BEST place I've ever had a burger! One of... More

The first bite taste similar to a burger joint I went to eat in town. What major differences are the stuffs they put in in your burger based on the type you order. I had ordered their Colorado burger. It's pack with freshly made burger patty, sautéed onions and green peppers with slices of avocado. The buttery taste is what... More

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Colorado. We went on an all day jeep tour one day, got back and wanted something quick and good for dinner that we didn't have to "dress up for". We found this spot. Tried it on Thursday night. LOVED IT! He had the 3 little pigs burger and I... More

This place is great! The burgers are a little more expensive than most places, but you get what you pay for and some! The service is great, the food is fantastic. I really can't say enough about this place. Check it out if you're ever in "the Springs"!

Omggggggg!!!! These burgers were AMAZING!!!! Fast friendly service and fantastic flavor! All of our burgers were cooked perfect! We had the Drunken Onion and green chili fries, the Sin City with the parmesan fries, the Luther, the Fatty Melt. Highly recommend this place! We also split a Velvet Elvis milkshake.

My family of three each tried a different burger and fry combo...all were delicious. Unfortunately it was on our last night in the area so we could not take our leftovers with us...we tried and failed to eat it all in one sitting. Wait staff was very friendly and just a little slow, not bad enough to drop from a... More

This is my favorite burger here. Full disclosure, I love French Dip sandwiches so they had me a Au Jus. The fries are good and the Grasshopper Shake with alcohol is delish with crashed Oreos in the bottom. The place does seem easily over whelmed from an operational standpoint. This is my third visit and it was the first time... More

These burgers are unreal. huge is one word. tasty is another. They come with a myriad of different items added to them. Fries and shakes are good, also. This is not just a good place to eat...it is an experience.

This is my favorite burger place in the Springs. I've been many many times and the service has always been good. They do have some unorthodox creations but they absolutely make it work. My advice is to go for whatever the special is at the time. Also give the milkshake a try
