This is a unique burger place with offerings such as glazed donuts on a burger, pulled pork, fried pickles, etc. All was good and they did have a veggie black bean burger and chicken. But I wish they'd offer a turkey burger.

This place is creative and delicious with a quirky wait staff who know and love their menu. I had the Sin City which is basically a burger with everything else good in life on it (candied bacon, deep fried cheddar, cartelized onions, avocado, and a touch of barbecue sauce). You would think the meat would get lost in all of... More

We arrived everyone was friendly! Many options to choose from. We all tried something different and the truffle fries were excellent! We recommend trying it!

Creative burgers that excite tastebuds and the fries were good too. I had the popper and although tasty, it was very messy and the cream cheese kept sliding off the burger. But I decided to embrace the sloppiness and loved every bite. Thankfully they have a napkin dispenser at the table so eat on my sloppy burger lovers! Our service... More

My family and I have been here several times. I love trying out the different burger and shakes. There's a such a large variety that anyone would enjoy. You can also try your burgers on a bed of lettuce instead. They also have wonderful sandwiches (the Kentucky is my favorite). Their fries are delicious with parmesan truffle, regular and sweet...

Good burgers and wow what a variety. My wife and I each tried something different and were satisfied. The bacon on my Krusty was amazing. But, bacon aside these burgers were nothing to rave about (or crave). We also tried the basic shakes because Crave says shakes are their specialty and again, their shakes were okay but nothing to rave... More

I had read so many great reviews of this place and was excited to go. I was so disappointed. The food was okay. I got the Sin City. It was okay. My fries were good. My husband and I split a shake which was okay as well. The guys seemed to like the chili cheese fries okay, but didn't eat... More

I looked at it all- the board of recommendations & just went down the description list & found "MY" Burger...it was the Colorado on a Buffalo patty with shredded lamb, chipotle mayo, avacado, tomatoe & monteray jack cheese! It was absolutely amazing!!! The best burger I've ever had! We were fatty's that day & got fried pickles with the cajun... More

By far the best burger I ever had. I had the Sin City burger and the truffle fries. The burger is a play on a grilled cheese and burger but that description doesn't do it justice. Highly recommended.

This place is soo cool! We went here last time we went on vacation. I love that you can build your own burgers pretty much. I love all the different types and types of milkshakes. We overdid ourselves!
