If you like burgers, this is a great place! Certainly pricey as all these gourmet places seem to be, they have some creative options. Almost too creative, but they let you customize. A shake was tempting, but that would have been like two days worth of calories! Good quality.

Loved the unique flavors they offer! I liked that I could change the burger to grilled chicken. The green chili is especially fabulous! My husband ordered the Cubano & was shocked at the size! The pictures really don't do the hamburgers justice in how amazing they are! We will be looking for this chain in our future travels.

This place would get 5 stars if the front of the house was set up better. The poor hostess was writing the wait list, seating, and bussing tables. Not enough servers for this busy night and I can only image how the overworked kitchen staff feels. Great burgers, let's work on the details guys!

Fantastic once-in-a while food. My favourite is definitely the Sin City, the candied bacon is so yummm. Simply the best burger I have tasted anywhere, ever !

After reading reviews, we tried this restaurant. It was very good and quite filling. I had a cheeseburger and my husband tried the Sin City burger. We both really enjoyed our food. He also tried the truffle fries. He loved them, but I was not a fan. It's a bit pricey, but worth it for what you get. It was... More

I live in CA and am fortunate enough to visit Colorado from time to time to visit family. Last year when I was in CO I found Crave in Castle Rock and it was truly a life changing burger experience. So this year I am in Colorado Springs and there is a Crave here as well so I had to... More

I'm not a local (I live about 3 hours away), but from what I understand, this is a local fave. We just happened upon it and we're glad we did. There are a lot of non traditional burgers and I've never had anything that wasn't good. They're big too. It's definitely not health food, but if you're looking for a... More

Great burger! I had the Sin City, which won the Denver Burger Bash. Sent photos back home to friends and made the envious!

Our entire party loved the Crave experience. Fantastic burger with creative combinations of toppings. Healthy options for gluten-free and beef alternatives. Hit the spot!

I have never had a better burger than Crave Real Burger. The menu has specialty burgers as well as specials rotated periodically. Burgers like Wiseguy, 3 Little Pigs, Campfire and the Drunken Onion (to name a few) are amazing. The french fries are skin on, hot, fresh and some of the best I have ever had. They have specialty fries... More
