A large group stopped by Foolish Craig's by chance while in Boulder for a wedding. They were able to quickly seat 8 people. The servers were great and friendly, the food came quickly, and it was great. The portions were huge and well priced.

This place is like a time capsule, even though it has only been in business since about 1998, it catapulted me right back to my university days of the '60s. In fact as I was leaving I passed by 2 older couples(my age) and said, doesn't t this remind you of your college days, and the woman grabbed my arm,... More

This place has some awesome choices! Never disappoints and for the type of casual food that it is supposed to be, it has some seriously gourmet specials! They also pour a good drink :)

We both shared some biscuits and gravy, MexiCali omelette and house potatoes. The food was awesome! So much flavor! Service could have been better but... More

We were looking for a place to eat lunch and found Foolish Craigs...good reviews...on the mall downtown. It was great. Felt like we were in Boulder. I had the Guacamole BLT and it was delicious. Everything looked good.

This is my favorite breakfast spot in Boulder. It's local, Not A Chain! The staff is awesome and service is very good. I love the local feel of Foolish Craigs. I've always had good food and drinks here. The owners are very cool and friendly. They have a great happy hour too. Love Foolish Craigs!
