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

Party of two, we ordered our burgers with "no red" as a given choice. Burgers arrived and one burger was bloody and cold in the center. Tried to get waitress's attention, but could not. Told my husband to go ahead and eat while I waited for her return. He had finished before she returned. Returned burger and left with bad... More

I am sad that I was treated bad here as the burgers are good. The lady seating made my party of 5 wait 20 minutes while she immediately sat a party of 4, a party of 8 and party of 3 where we could have easily fit!

Think of a burger combination and if its not on the menu they can probably put it together. An eclectic menu of burger options to include chicken and turkey burgers that should meet anyone's desire. They specialize in the unique combinations of if you can eat it, then we can put it in a burger. From simple to stacked high... More

Get out the knife, fork and bib! Our waiter Aaron from Wyoming was awesome! Gave great suggestions and was right on the money! I was with family and we shared 3 different burgers and would recommend them all. The truffle fries were truly a delight to the palette.

OMG...I KNOW WHY THEY ARE NAMED "crave burger"! Awesome fresh meat, cooked perfectly. Amazing flavor combinations, from plain Jane to wild combinations including a burger sandwiched between two grilled cheese sandwiches, or how sandwiched between DONUTS. My favorite is a bunless Popper with a slab of breaded fried cream cheese, fresh jalapeño, onion strings and chipotle catsup. It's served on... More

Where do I start? This is where you go when you want to reward yourself for reaching your exercise goals for the week (or punish yourself, for not). It was almost too good. I took my sister here for a sibling luncheon, based on the good reviews. Surprisingly when we arrived, it wasn't very crowded. Fast forward 15 minutes, the... More

if you can't find somethin' from the burger world to like at this place, you're a doofus. all manner of burgers and burger/combo sandwiches, and some of the best fried pickles I've ever had, and our service was really great. i'll go here again!

I've been here 3 times--the burgers are unique and flavorful--but the service has always been the WORST. There are plenty of servers to the customer ratio--I had time to count! this last time our waitress spent much of her time talking with the 1 male server. our food had to be brought to our table by another server--it had sat...
