Favorite restaurant!

I would eat here everyday if I could. The burgers are amazing, their fries taste so fresh! The ice cream is the best around! You need to stop in if you are in town! Love love love it!

The burgers and sandwiches are about average for a small shop. Good but not too exceptional. Not to imply that they are not better than McDonald's however as they are not franchise fast food burgers. They could use some larger buns. The draw here is the frozen custard. It's made a vanilla mostly and then they stir in the additional... More

Went thru the drive thru and order the Philly cheesesteak . Asked them to add lettuce and tomato and they did . Had to wait for little bit but it is worth the wait to have fresh food . Glad that they now take credit .

We were visiting Front Royal and area for a week. We returned here twice for a custard fix. Yummy! The counter area gets s bit crowded and parking was a challenge with a pickup but we managed. We will return on our next visit.

Great burgers, best chicken cheesesteak I've ever had. Food came out fast, delivered by friendly gentleman. Was fresh, as advertised, milkshake fantastic. Super busy on Sunday afternoon. Fun little koi pond out front. Bathrooms clean.

We are from Alexandria and always stop at Spelunker's when near Front Royal. The burgers are great and the custard is delicious. Don't miss this place!

The food here is great. Burgers are delicious, custard nice and creamy and indulgent, and prices are reasonable. If you're anywhere close, be sure to stop in. The only negatives I'd associate with Spelunkers is that the parking can be dicey on the weekends, and both times I've been in there, a few of the patrons have been acting like... More

I am a huge burger fan, real burgers, and this place is the best around. The owner Steve is a really nice guy, he treated us like family. I got a delicious double with cheese and bacon with jalapenos and some chili cheese fries that were incredible. Then we got custard and it was soooo smooth and creamy, a perfect... More
