This place has a really creative menu of burgers and sandwiches. I had the Ben Franklin. I was surprised at the size of the portion and the fries were delish. My friends all had burgers which they thoroughly enjoyed. They also have an interested selection of beers, wine and ciders. The service of friendly and prompt. Nice place to meet... More

Had the " Love Stinks ", OMG !. Fries were even fantastic, been three weeks since I was there and still mad that I did not go the next day. Very unique burgers, never heard of putting some of the items on burgers.

I personally would give Crave 5-stars, family members said 4. Got a plain burger and salad... excellent! Juicy burger, soft and tasty bun. Veggies on the burger and the salad were fresh. I literally ate every bite!

Burgers were wonderful. Service was excellent. Try the Fatty Melt (burger between two grilled cheese sandwiches). You won't be disappointed.

So many options to choose from on their menu. Delicious. Friendly service. Lots of good beer options. Try the burger with the peanut butter. To die for!!

I had the Bunless Buffalo burger and it was amazing! The pablano peppers were not hot at all and the raspberry BBQ sauce tops it all off. Too bad they are only in Colorado! We plan on eating in another location before we head back home.

Had to check out this restaurant after reading the reviews. Definitely worth every star. The Sin City Burger was cooked perfectly. Carmelized onions soft and yummy. Awesome bacon and fried cheese rounded out just some of the items on this burger. Added the truffle fries to round out the meal. Was well worth the trip. Great experience overall.

Went here with the family on vacation. Nice burger joint with an interesting menu, large portions, great staff, and less than $50 for a family of five (though 2 shared a plate since it was so large). Would really recommend to anyone living in the area and to anyone visiting Colorado Springs.

Best burger I've ever eaten- by far. My husband and son raved about their visit last summer so my expectations were high. We ordered 5 burgers with various sides and beer. Our server (Kim❤️) was a treat- warm and welcoming with great recommendations. Our burgers were delicious- Sin City was my fav. Would highly recommend!

Delicious burgers and fries. Definitely wish they had one closer to home. Great amount of food for the price.
