Great eats

Serves Cavern Burgers, Italian sausage, Phillie cheese, hot dogs and chili dogs to satisfy everyone. They have a special flavor of the day frozen custard that always tastes great. Great for kids and families.

My wife and I were in the mood for some burgers and since we were new in town we had no idea where to go and did not want a fast food chain burger. We found this little hambuger joint and dang, these burgers are juicy with slight crisp on the patty from the hot griddle. My wife ordered the... More

Great hamburger, appears to be handmade, juicy with crispy edges. ,Fries were not quite as good as Five Guys, but the burger was better. the place was jumping, full of hikers. definitely the stop for the "fit" crowd. good to see a fast food restaurant that isn't full of obese people. The ice cream Sunday was made with a very... More

Real burgers and fries. Yummy shakes & sundaes. Spelunkers is the real deal. Next to McDonald's & Burger King, you can choose real food. Similar to 5 Guys or In and Out Burger. Thick double burgers made to order and hand cut fries. If you've got room, real shakes and sundaes to finish the meal.

When visiting the family, we always stop for a burger and ice cream. Although the burger can be greasy it is still very good. The fries are good and the price is right. It's a typical fast food joint but because it is not a regular chain I find it better. Oh, you might want to get a shake:)

I'm not a hamburger eater, but I make an exception for theirs which are always juicy and delicious. It's a fast food place but don't hold that against them.

This is the best burger in Warren County and possibly the best in Northern Va. They use fresh ground beef. They cut their own french fries, too. But, the best part of the meal is the frozen custard. I get it in a homemade waffle cone, They make shakes and sundaes, too.

Visited Spelunkers for the first time today and I must say that their food is fresh and tasty! It looks like any regular fast food restaurant, but what sets them apart is the quality. They make burgers, hot dogs, and cheesesteaks fresh to order. My brother and I ordered the Cavern burger with cheese. Parents ordered the Bacon Cavern burger... More

Spelunker's isn't fine dining, but it is a step up from its chain fast food competitors. A philly cheese steak deluxe, laced with green peppers, onions, and mayonnaise, makes me smile. A strawberry milkshake reveals a treasure trove of real strawberries hiding underneath its liquid coat. Close to an entrance to Skyline Drive, Spelunker's makes for a quick, cheap, and... More
