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

I finally got around to trying Crave about 3 weeks ago...went during lunch and sat at the bar. I ordered the "Buffalo Bill" special w/fries and iced tea. The server was friendly and available. The burger was an experience...bison topped w/BBQ sauce, onion strings, fried jalapeño slices, and a breaded pork loin. Best burger this half-centurion has ever eaten. I... More

Not your typical burger joint....one has a grilled cheese sandwich at the bottom, another has two glazed doughnuts instead of a bun, one has shredded lamb, etc. But the combinations are tasty and well put together, the burger is substantial (no quarter-inch thin patties here!!!), and the truffle fries are a good compliment to the burgers. Not cheap, but the... More

I have no idea why anyone would choose to eat here more than once. It's REALLY loud, the place is a dirty dump of a store (bathrooms were filthy, no soap, had to use something out of my purse to get the grease off), the service is lousy, and the burgers were a greasy mess. Yes, I know they are... More

We stumbled upon this place in search of a good, hearty burger, and this place delivered exactly that! Now, these are not your typical beef patty and bun burgers... These masterpieces consist of those things PLUS more awesomeness for their specialty burgers. A variety of specialty burgers are on the menu, and we truly enjoyed the Wise Guy and the... More
