Awesome burgers - great fries!

WOW is all I can say! Excellent selection of burgers - from the standard stuff to some pretty unique combinations. The burgers were all done as we wanted and the fries are really good too. I'd suggest the truffle fries as those were REALLY tasty. My daughter enjoyed one of their shakes too... read more

Went with family and we had great burgers but it was difficult to pick which one to order because of the bizarre options like donuts for buns or grilled cheese sandwiches as buns. We ordered the Krusty to be safe without a bun and they put it on a salad for us. I had the Colorado which I initially thought... More

This place is fabulous. It is a must try while in Colorado Springs. Everything looked so good it was hard to choose. 7 of us at the table and we each LOVED what we ordered. Cant go wrong here.

If you are looking for a different burger menu, this is the place. I had the Sin City and sweet potato fries. I'm not a burger person but this was good!

Why have I not been here sooner? Great burger choices and great fries! I had the Flaming Tiki black bean soy burger and fries. DELICIOUS! The kids both loved their burgers/fries and milkshakes. Friendly staff and great music in the background. Will go back soon!

Total Yum! So many burger choices, and many award winning ones also. There were 8 of us and every burger at the table looked awesome, and were completely eaten. I had a Caprese salad and it was delicious. The local beers were good also. Matched up with the burgers very well.

Our table ordered three different types of burgers (Campfire, Love Stinks, and Sin City) and fries (regular, sweet potato, and truffle) -- all were outstanding! Service was great! We now have a new standard for comparing other burgers! Don't think twice, just go!!

If you are looking for a twist on the typical burger, Crave has something to offer. It is a little pricy, but you do get a ton of food. I ordered the burger with peanut butter, bacon and jalapeños. I have had this burger before at other restaurants and I really like the peanut butter on the burger. Better than... More

During a family trip to the springs, we were looking to try a burger joint that was different. We settled on Crave after some recommendations from some locals and were glad we did. The wait was a little long but was expected by how busy they were. I chose a burger with coffee dusted onion rings and was amazed at... More

Got the "Luther." Burger with egg and bacon between two donuts. It was awesome. Eventhough it sounds like it could be overkill or just gross, it real does taste good. The meat was perfect. The donuts were not too sweet and made for a really good bun. Sweet potato fries were perfectly seasoned.
