After spending the day on Skyline Drive, we drove into Front Royal looking for a place to grab a bite to eat, and we stumbled upon this place! The place was very clean and the staff was polite and helpful. They did slightly mess up our order, but they quickly resolved it, and the food was excellent. Although most people... More

Really, really good burgers. And attentive service. It's a bit like a converted Arthur Treacher's inside but bright and clean and flowers on the tables. I can't believe the McDonald's a few doors down gets any business.

When we passed through Front Royal on our way to Luray caverns, I spotted a road sign fro Spelunkers. My family was tired of chain fast food so I decided to give it a try. Wow! Some of the best hamburgers ever. Fresh found every day. We liked it so much that when we passed through again three days later... More

A group of us stopped by for a late dinner around 8:45pm on a Monday night. There were 9 of us in the group and I think we surprised them. But the staff rallied and eventually got a second person to open a register and get all of our orders. I had the single cheeseburger and my hubby had the... More

The burgers were good, my son had fish n chips and liked them a lot. The chicken strips were also fresh made on site as well as the fries. Overall very good meal but maybe a little too on the greasy side. Order at the counter/they bring it to the table. Still better than a fast food drive through and... More

I never would have stopped here just driving past, but am really glad I did. The frozen custard is the creamiest and best I have ever had and the burgers and fries are amazing. The prices are fast food but the food taste and quality is not. Crisp pickles and lettuce on the burgers which were cooked just right and... More

Spelunker's is a drive thru and dine in restaurant/frozen custard stand. We stopped here on our way to Skyline Caverns. It is just about a mile and a half from there. My grandson wanted to drive thru and eat in the car, so we did. I was happily surprised that the hamburgers were delicious! They have jr. burgers for the... More

Purposely stay in Front Royal on our travels just to get our burger & custard fix. The absolute best @ a ridiculously low price.
