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!

Unfortunately, while the atmosphere and the menu are really fun at Crave Burgers, the taste and the after-affect didn't really live up to the fun. The burger was OK, but nothing extremely exciting. And I didn't really feel great after eating there, so this won't be a regular stop on my travels.

This is a place that has really good service and the burgers are different but I didn't think it had a special taste that said I have to go back. The shakes will makes you want to return.

Crave was recommended to several of us on a business trip for dinner near our hotel in Colorado Springs. It has a fun atmosphere and an equally fun menu. Our server was great, and she really knew what she was doing. When it came to the meal, it was OK, but certainly not in the category of best burgers I've... More

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
