Crave’s Drunken Mushroom Burger named top Colorado-based vote winner in the James Beard Blended Burger Project Competition

James Beard Blended Burger Project

The Crave burger ranked 11th overall out of 347 competitors nationwide with more than 2 million votes cast. The Drunken Mushroom Burger included sautéed Shiitake and Cremini mushrooms and blended them into our Colorado-proud beef patty with fresh thyme, rosemary and garlic. This was topped off with cheeses, drunken onions, truffle mayonnaise and Shiitake and Cremini mushroom tempura for satisfying crunch. Served au jus for dunking!

Crave Featured on the TODAY Show

For their story on the American obsession with hamburgers, NBC and the Today Show used Foursquare data to find the nation’s most popular burger joints. A short time later they came calling at Crave Real Burgers. We invited them behind the grill, where they captured the Luther, Cubano and other Crave faves brought to life by our Burger Gurus.

Up for a Challenge? Try the Big Bad Wolf!

Here's how the Big Bad Wolf Challenge works:

Big Bad Wolf
  • We serve the Challenger 3 loaded 3 Little Pigs Burgers piled high with onion straws. Then we set the timer to 45 minutes. The Wolf Challenger Huffs and Puffs and attempts to wolf down everything on the plate, in 45 minutes, without restroom breaks.
  • If the Wolf conquers the 3 Little Pigs the meal is free, his/her photo is proudly displayed on our Wall of Winners, and he/she gets a free Challenger T-shirt! If the Challenger should fail the price is $30 and a photo on the Wall of Losers!
  • (For Wolves in training try one Wolf Burger for $15 to see if you have what it takes!)
  • Must be 18 years of age or older.
