We celebrated National Adoption Day at Crave. I have been before, but each visit is a different burger experience (in a good way). They have such a fun creative menu everyone including the GF daughter and the vegetarian daughter were all happy with the meal....More

This is not the place for you if you want a traditional burger. Although they have them, be adventurous. They have several different gourmet burgers. You may not think they sound good but the different combinations make for some amazing flavors in your mouth. Be...More

This was a-maz-ing. Each burger was an adventure in flavor, texture and imagination. Just when you think the combination was impossible to pull off, you meet someone who is raving about it. My son's fav is 3 little pigs. I had one with green chili...More

I love burgers. This place was great. I went for the purist. A basic double cheeseburger that was perfect. The shakes are very good. It you like burgers and shakes you will be very happy.

Yes, you should come into Crave Real Burgers hungry. I was on a business trip to Colorado Springs and after a day of meetings I decided to stop at Crave Real Burgers for dinner. I had the Flaming Tiki Burger, fried pickles, and a banana...More

After hitting a couple farmers markets my friend and I were really looking for a good burger and we were not disappointed with the Plain Jane burger. Perfectly cooked with just the right amount of cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. The fries were crispy, golden brown...More

The Adult Milkshakes are Amazing! Good Burgers.. A family and Kid friendly place. If you are a die hard fanatic over milkshakes like me... then this is a Must Do!

Okay, traveling with two teens, burgers are always a "go to" meal. But while we are on vacation, we are always looking for something out of the ordinary. Not the same old, same old you get back home. Crave Real Burgers is just that place....More

Tuesday night.....waited 45 min to get in.... there were lots of open tables but they were piled high with dishes, dirty floors. It appeared that there were only 3-4 waitstaff on the floor who were also seating and bussing tables. No clear manager on duty....More

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

The Colorado Springs location was our second - we were determined to branch out and show more of Colorado what we're about! Colorado Springs seemed like a great place to add on, and boy was it! We are located less than a mile from the Air Force Academy in the Springs, and being there for our military friends has been amazing and so rewarding. We love when the AFA folks show up! (We also give a 10% military discount at every location, by the way!) And the restaurant is right on Academy Blvd. near tons of shopping options and other local businesses, so you can have your cake and eat it too. Whether military or not, stop by with the fam sometime soon, and we'll hook it up!
