Came out hot, fresh veg, crispy bacon and juicy with the perfect hint of grease. The fries are double cooked which is the only way to do... read more

Nice place to stop for lunch. Family friendly. No alcohol. Clean. We turned left instead of right at the gas station. If you are in the country you went the wrong way.

Coming off the Skyline Drive at the northern end we were starved and stopped for a quick meal at this local burger joint. We all agreed that the burgers were terrific. Great tasting char-broiled juicy beef burgers. The fries were average. And Coke, no Pepsi. Yay. Custart was great and included in kids meal. If you're in the neighborhood, give... More

This was the best burger I've had in a while. They use fresh ingredients and cooked it perfectly with just the right seasoning. The onions rings were spot on, the best we have had in a while. My wife enjoyed her Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. We also had shakes and they were delicious. We will stop again, when in Front Royal.... More

Amazing burgers and yummy homemade fries with cheap prices. The two of us ate for $6.00. We had to wait for food but was worth it. Plan to stop here when in the area.

We had lunch at Spelunker's and the food was fine. The staff were nice but the place wasn't what we expected from reading reviews. Think about an alternative McDonalds or Wendy's. The burgers were okay and the fries hot. Overall decent but the place looks tired and in need of some cleaning and paint.

This is the first restaurant I visited when I moved to Front Royal. Looking for a burger of all-burgers, go to Spelunkers. The name threw me off, but I eventually got it. If you are a fan of burgers and fries Spelunker’s is the place to go. The burgers are delicious and the fries are ohh-la-la yummy. When my dog... More

Spelunker's is amazing...best burgers anywhere. Kid's meals are the bomb...they come with custard...real custard...not a mix. It's awesome, too...way better than any frozen custard anywhere. Drive through specials are the deal. If you do low carb, you can get a lettuce bun! Can't say enough. Love my Spelunker's, and Steve, April, Hannah, Crystal, Danielle, Dee and all the super staff...
