Stop for the burgers, but stay for the fries and shakes. Unique burgers in a friendly environment. The shakes are delicious and unique. Would visit again to try the other shakes.

Enjoyed dinner here. The staff were very friendly, greeted us as we walked in, the place was clean and lively. The food had good prices, large selection. The Sin City Burger is to die for!

Crave has THE BEST burgers! They are so delicious. Candied bacon, fried cheese...need I say more? Go for a jog or two and then come eat a burger. You will be stuffed and happy.

We tried this place for dinner at the recommendation of local family. The menu is very unique with all sorts of eclectic options. All and all I am not an adventurous eater and did not find it to be the best burger.

Great food and unusual burgers, although I've never found the staff to be overly welcoming. But the food is worth it!

At Crave we’re proud of our state in every way. We think our support for local farmers and ranchers proves it. All our ground beef and chuck is certified Colorado Proud. I do not see where it says "grass fed" but that's the... More
