If you are looking for a unique burger experience this is the place for you. They are well known for their glazed bacon and wacky bun substitutions. Instead of a bun how about glazed donuts, or maybe two grilled cheese?

The burgers are amazing but it is a super busy place. There has been a wait everytime we have been there regardless of the day. The service can be a bit hit or miss, but the food makes up for it. Excellent shakes too!

Just when you thought you have had burgers before, you go to Crave and your taste buds go crazy! The sin city burger was awesome and the special burger was out of this world. Indoor or outdoor seating

The burger is the only thing saving this restaurant. The staff really didn't get me excited to eat there or even made me feel welcome. I sat for almost 5 minutes before being greeted by my server. And since I waited so long she even...More

A bit pricey, but HUGE burgers. The shakes were delicious! Maybe a little too much happening on some of the burgers, but definitely worth a try.

These are the best burgers around! I had the Fatty Melt which is a burger between two grilled cheese sandwiches, my daughter had the popper and my son and husband had the cubano. None of us were disappointed. I wish they had a Crave in...More

This is a must try when in Colorado! Yummy, unique flavored burgers! My son loved his donut bun burger and we all had to get shakes! All was great! A little loud and not super fast service, but the food made up for 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
