We usually patronize a Burger and Fries outlet across the the Street on N. Academy, and wish we had gone there today as well. Crave serves alcohol, fine; and there is table service too. But you also pay extra it seems to just have this available. Order a cleverly named burger, a drink, do the tip, and just maybe get... More

Great juicy burger cooked to order. Many choices to please any burger lover. Short wait for a table on Friday evening. Great service and our order arrived quick.

This place is awesome!! It has tons of burger options (there's other food too) and all the burgers have clever names. It was really fun for us (and our teenage boys) to pick out the different ones...and when they were delivered to our table, our mouths dropped open and our eyes widened at he size of these burgers!!! Totally worth... More

It doesn't matter if you do the vegetarian option or a regular burger ( I have done both) both options are wonderful! Creative choices. The specials are always wonderful. Only complaint I would have is that the fried pickles are too salty. The burgers and staff make up for it 10 fold so they still get a 5 star review.... More

Never tried Craves before. Excellent juicy burgers. Good fries but not the best we have had. We didn't have shakes because we were full. Enjoyed the experience.

If you can wait out the crowd, this is a great burger place! A little on the noisy side but the wait and the noise are worth it! I tend to be a purist and just want cheese on my burger, but the selection is amazing. The beef is excellent and the fries are great! Good service, great food can't... More

Until you go, you have no idea what your missing. The burger selection is basically torture because you want to try them all. All I can say is close your eyes and pick one and prepare for a flavor punch to the face. Oh ya and truffle fries. Don't forget about the truffle fries.

So, Son knows the old man likes a thick juicy burger now and then and suggests we give Crave in Colorado Springs a try, the choices are huge, before stepping inside check the front window pictures of what your burger will look like, it may help you decide, it did me, everything was fresh and made to order, they also...

After we checked into our hotel way out near the airport we started looking up places to eat. I had a couple places in mind, but none of those really sounded good at this point. We turned to tripadvisor on our smartphones to see if we could locate a restaurant that looked like a winner that wasn’t too far away... More

THE MOST AMAZING BURGERS! A unique burger joint with the most unusual burger combos. Like the "Luther": donuts for buns??? Great malts too. We go every time we are in town.
