Wow

Always heard people talking about this place but never actually felt like taking the drive. Was in the area and heard someone talking about it so I figured it couldn't be that bad. For everything we ordered it was about the price it would have been if we went to somewhere like McDonald's. The food... read more

the burger was very tasty but be aware if you want cheese on your bacon burger you have to ask for it. The frozen custard was nothing too memorable. I personally don't get how that is any different than soft ice cream... it was fine.

We came here for a quick bite and were not disappointed. The food is cheap and of great quality. The fries are delicious as was the chlli cheesedog that I had. I would only say that the portions are fairly small. Great service.

I have driven past Spelunker's many, many times and thought about eating there, but didn't until yesterday. What a surprise! The place was very busy, but service was still fast. The food was cooked to order, so it was hot and delicious. My mom and grandson got hot dogs. Mom's had chili and cheese (and plenty of it). Both enjoyed... More

35 of us stopped the bus and had a custard. Of course I had to be different and had a rootbeer float. Creamy and delicious. The kids serving were great, nice and efficient. They were not fazed by the bunch of us coming through the door. Great place to stop.

They have the best steakburgers ever that are hard to duplicate, even with knowing their ingredients. The frozen custard is awesome also.

The burgers are made from fresh ground beef (not frozen) and are served on a toasted bun. Good value for the money. The fries are fresh cut with skins on and the frozen custard is a nice ending to an All American Meal.

Burgers are fresh, rolls are tasty, service friendly. Not as fast as going to Mc Donalds but so much better. The soft serve ice cream is great and they have a new flavor each day.

Spelunker's has the best burgers in town, by far--maybe even the best in the Shenandoah Valley! The fries are amazing too (like Boardwalk fries) and the ice cream?? My husband is very picky about ice cream and he says it's the best he's ever tasted--and we've traveled extensively. A local "secret"--there's a drive through special for just $2.50--you can get...

Food is good and above average from your normal fast food restaurants. Burgers and ice cream are very good and prices are reasonable. Only think negative is it takes forever to get in and out of drive thru, definitly not fast.
