Popped in for lunch over the Easter weekend and was very impressed with the specialty sandwiches we all had. Great flavour and good portion size. The shake was pretty thick but so good! We would definitely visit again.

We like to check out different burger joints wherever we go and this is by far the best burger place I’ve ever been to, not even an exaggeration. Service is attentive. The Colo Springs location is roomier than the Castle Rock location.

Would go back when we visit Colorado. The price is a little high, but you get what you pay for. Try the different burgers , you will love them.

We went to Crave Real Burgers for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. For an appetizer, I would highly recommend the truffle fries. I had a Sin City Burger for dinner. It was great. However, the portion sizes were absolutely huge....More

First time I tried Crave Real Burgers. I have a gluten allergy. I tried my cheeseburger with the gluten-free bun option and honestly, the entire thing had very little flavor. The meat wasn't seasoned and even the onions had no flavor. It was the strangest...More

Menu has significant choices of burgers, salads, and sides. The Colorado burger was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The fries were fresh and hot. The salads that were coming out of the open kitchen looked incredible. The Laughing Lab beer from their beer menu was...More

Great hamburgers at Crave Real Burgers in Colorado Springs. I had the Sinful City burger (without the avocado) and it was great. The tempura Sharp cheese took it over the top for me. Had the burger with a side of greens instead of fries. Good...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
