My son and I stopped by on our way home. He loved the cave burger. The prices are a little high but high enough to prevent a return trip.

I've been going to Front Royal and the Shenandoah Valley for more than two decades and purposely avoided stopping at "yet another burger joint." Big mistake! Th burger was fresh, made to order and a real bargain. My first bite produced the exclamation "this is better than 5 Guys!" Spelunker's grinds their own hamburger and cuts their fries in-house! Don't... More

First let me say i loved this place, read my old review and you will see, i ate here constantly without fail. It was the best burger deal ever but i have to say after numerous recent trips i am sad to report things have gone downhill, way way downhill. If you are grabbing yogurt or a shake fine but... More

We recently headed to Shenandoah National Park for a few days of R&R. While on the trails we met a man from West Texas, who retired to the Shenandoah Valley and hikes often. When he found out we were considering driving to the north end of the Park, he offered Spelunker's as a great place to get a meal. A... More

Happy we stopped. It was very busy and we had to park next door and walk over. The line moved quickly but it was abit of a wait for the food. Big. Yummy burgers made like old times. The fries were very good as well. Top it off with chocolate shakes. Perfect lunch!!!

We couldn't find a parking spot and didn't want to do drive thru, so we parked at the neighboring strip mall. Since it was our first time in Front Royal and just seeing the crowd / line, we almost went someplace else. However, we gave it a try and glad we did. Although the peak lunchtime line was long, it...

Whether you try the Cavern burger, or the home-made ice cream, you're in for a real treat. The ice cream choice is limited to vanilla or the flavor of the day. Some of the daily flavors are exceptional, others not so much, but that is personal preference. One minor gripe is that it is not always clear from the name... More

We have stopped here twice while visiting Shenandoah and have had good experiences. We wanted a quick place to stop on our way into the park. We gave them 4 stars because the inside seemed a little dirty and the service was slow but both times we enjoyed our food. The burgers were huge and the custard was great. We... More
