Crave Real Food in Castle Rock

Nutty Professor
peanut butter (yes, peanut butter), bacon, jalapenos and onion
Velvet Elvis
Peanut Butter, Bananas, and Bacon! Just the way the King would have ordered it.

Crave Real Food in Castle Rock is the real deal. Without question one of the most memorable meals I have ever had. It’s close to the theater so I would imagine a lot of folks are planning to go here, then a movie. That may sound like a great idea but you will have to cancel the movie and head straight for confession. This place is naughty good. I’m talkin’ complete and utter indulgence. Jeff the Chef/Owner is like a Mad Scientist behind the counter. This guy is AWESOME!! He definitely grabbed the “Abbey Normal” brain in the jar for this one. As you can see from the pictures above things got out of hand. When I coined the phrase “Grub Chub” this is what I was referring to. Thank god the teacher didn’t ask me to get up and work out a problem on the chalkboard during this noshfest, because I was sportin’ a pretty serious Food Woody. I almost hesitate to let you all know how good this place is because I always want to be able to get a table but when something is this good, I gotta share. They give you a card that is a check list of all their burgers, great idea but I’m going to have a hard time ordering anything other than The Nutty Prof. We were there last Friday evening during the heaviest rain storm I have ever seen. It was like Armageddon outside and I had no idea that while I was making sweet nasty love to this burger my backyard was filling with water and about to flood our beautifully finished basement. As I was down on my knees trying to reconnect the sump pump in 3 feet of water two feet from an electrical outlet I’m thinking “Damn that was a good burger and shake” Seriously GO GET YA SUM - Shannon

  1. Quite the recommendation! I've got three good friends that live down South, I'm sending them over to read this. Really interesting food. Peanut butter, jalapeno and bacon burger reminds me of getting on the roller coaster...scared, excited and you know it's gonna be fun.

  2. I need to go and check it out. Thanks for the tip.

  3. Work your way through the burger card for a free burger and T-shirt. You need to try one of about 14 different burgers including Shannon's fav, the Nutty Professor. I'm about 12 burgers in and none have come home to feed the dog, although sometimes I can't finish one (especially the Cubano) at one sitting and my wife and kids line up for dibs. Sweet potato fries are some of the best I've had and if you try to go heart healthy and try a salad, they are fresh and tasty. Jeff and crew are definitely masters of the board & grill!!!
