We went only once so maybe that is not a fair review but our experience was spectacular. The waitress took a lot of time to explain our options which were almost too much for us to comprehend as we live in Panama and nothing is...More

Great food and unusual burgers, although I've never found the staff to be overly welcoming. But the food is worth it!

Not sure what the buzz is about. The waitress asked us if we wanted our burgers a little pink or no pink. We said a little pink and burgers came out charred. Sure topping are good but if the base burger is ok, then nothing...More

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
