After the Caverns treat

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.

I don't usually eat burgers, but am willing to sin for those at Spelunker's. They are the best around.

Spelunkers is a little town jewel! Their cavern burgers are to die for, fresh meat and tastes amazing. Their custard ice cream is the best and their "formations" are like a blizzard but better. Prices can be higher than expected, but worth it!

They have really nice burgers! It's kind of a fast food place. But it also feels like it is perfectly ok to hang out, take your time, have a chat. I loved the food (much better than the usual fast food chains) and enjoyed the atmosphere in the restaurant. A really good option in Front Royal.
