We have been eating lunch at Spelunker's since 2006 and can't think of a better place to go for a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich or burger... with fries, of course! They slice and grind their beef on site and it is some of the juiciest, tastiest I have ever had. Their fries are cut and fried on site as well and... More

If you are passing by on the I-66, it is worth driving 4 miles into Front Royal to enjoy burgers and frozen custard at this popular restaurant. I enjoyed a bacon cheeseburger that beat most other fast food burgers for taste, juiciness, and price.

Always new flavors of custard --- and they make thier sandwiches fresh to order so it takes a little more time - but its always fresh and hot! Best ice tea around !

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!!!
