My first time visiting this place and sure to not be the last. food was good even though it was a burger and fries. It was moist, good size and worth the dollars it cost. We has custard at the end and it was just what the dessert doctor ordered.

They make the best burgers and fries ever! Ice cream is also very good, they make their own waffle cones

I regularly eat at Spelunker's whether by myself or with a family member. The hamburger is juicy, fresh, and served on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles. I like mayo and my husband likes mustard on it. We particularly like the combo choices. This way we get a delicious burger, drink, and ice cream or French fries.... More

As always, Trip Advisor didn't let us down. Spelunker's has excellent burgers, fries, onion rings and custard. Everything else on the menu looked great as well. We wish we lived closer so this could be our go to burger place. THANKS MARK!!!!!!!!

I don't know why they taste so good and are so juicy. Had to make a quick drive from Charlottesville to DC and back, Front Royal is NOT on the direct route. It was well worth by 100 mile detour to get two cavern burgers that I wrapped in a beach towel and were still warm when I got home.

Quite literally the best frozen custard that has ever graced my mouth. One time when my mom and I visited Front Royal we stopped there for lunch AND dinner just so we could get some.

I'm not usually much of a burger person, but I will always make an exception for Spelunker's! The burgers are delicious and ground on-premises every day, and the fries are fresh, not frozen. If burgers aren't your thing, their cheesesteaks and chicken filets are fantastic as well. Spelunker's is known for its frozen custard, but honestly, I've always been so... More
