Spelunkers has one of the best burgers I have ever had. The chocolate custard is amazing! It takes a little time to get your food but is well worth the wait since it is made fresh!

Ordered the "flavor of the day" marketed as Almond Heath bar. What we got was an already melting cone of what tasted like cake batter with so much cheap almond flavoring dumped in it both smelled & tasted like alcohol. The "custard" was thin, runny, and overtly sweetened. The "heath bar" was a couple shakes of some no-brand topping from... More

We have been known to hike the northern section of Shenandoah National Park just to "earn" a visit to Spelunker's. Juicy, delicious, and fresh burgers nestled on perfectly grilled buns - - the stuff of dreams. Fresh flowers on the tables, smiles behind the counters, and real frozen custard. Because every item is cooked to order, there can be a... More

We stopped for ice cream after hiking. They let us have the dogs at the outside tables. The ice cream was very good and reasonably priced. They do have a koi pond next to the outdoor tables, so please keep your dogs away from the pond and don't let them pee on the building, tables or landscaping.

The place itself was nice. It was clean and busy. However the food was more than mediocre. We had a cheeseburger and the bacon cheeseburger. They were incredibly greasy to the point where the paper tore and juices got everywhere. The fries are cooked in peanut oil. We also had the frozen custard. It was generic soft serve. Two small...

My son and I are visiting my parents in Front Royal and they said we had to try this place, we were not disappointed. I had the Philly Cheese Stake and the others had Burgers we were all very happy. Fries and Onion Rings were good and the staff was friendly. So if you're looking for a great burger this... More

A foodie's favorite burger and the one and only 'fast food' place I patronize. Go for Cavern Burgers, fries and a chocolate shake. The iced tea is fresh brewed and always good.

Stopped in on my way out of Shenandoah National Park. Very good quality burger and price for a combo. I got a double bacon cheeseburger combo, with fruits and small sweet tea and the total was still under $8. I'd call that a good value. The burger was very good, juicy and hot. In fact maybe a little too juicy... More

For a drive thru in or out of the town of Front Royal, I'd highly recommend this for a burger. Made fresh to order.. you may have to pull up and wait 5 mintues for your food but it is worth the wait. Burgers & Shakes are Mouthwatering.
