This place has amazing burgers and shakes! I really enjoyed the flaming tiki with an order of truffle fries. The wait staff are always quick to take your order and make you laugh. I enjoy this place.

This place is off the chart! Easily the best burger in town. When we get company in town, we take em to Garden of the Gods, up the Cog, and to Crave Burger. It should be part of the city's brochure. Love the Colorado Burger with the lamb and the chili peppers. And the sweet potato fries. I actually Crave... More

The Colorado Springs Food Guy craved to do something different tonight so I went out to Crave Real Burgers located at 7465 Academy Blvd N, Colorado Springs, CO 80920. The burgers are massive, filling and oh so tasty. I had the Sin City burger topped with fried sharp cheddar cheese. It is so decadent. I wish they added more candied... More

Visited from Texas. Burger was ok. Poblano peppers weren't prepared to remove bitterness. Fried cheese slab was battered but bland on burger. Just didn't have flavor. Cost $10.50! Cheese fries also bland. Mushy. Spent about $45 on 3 people, only one really liked their PLAIN cheese burger. I'd give this place a skip. Too hyped up for what we can... More

Haven't been here in a few years and they're still fantastic and service continues at its excellent pace. Went at lunch time on a Sunday and they had empty seats. Steady stream of customers so they were efficient. Can't say enough nice things about it. Their burgers are made with Buffalo, and it adds such a great taste. Since I... More

The hamburgers were unbelievable! We visited the Colorado Springs location and our waitress was absolutely wonderful, friendly & made our eating experience a pleasure. We wanted to try an adult shake but we were too full. I had the Sin City and my husband had the Cubano (O.M.G. the toppings!). We ordered our French fries extra crispy and the Chef... More

My son was excited to take us there- my wife and I were disappointed- I know the restaurant has won many local awards but my NM burger with jalapeno and green Chile was very dry. For $12 I expected more. My sons burger inside 2 grilled cheese sandwiches was very large and filling and he enjoyed his meal. my wife's... More

If I could give crave a higher rating, I would. My husband and I stopped in for dinner on a Monday evening. We had a 5-10 minute wait as he place was packed. Our server did a great job, and our food and out quickly. The Sin City burger was amazing, one of the best I've had! Would definitely go... More
