These burgers taste like you grilled them yourself, real meat! Plus the fries are to die for! I highly recommend this restaurant. If you have any room left, the custard is awesome, too!

Was hoping for a wonderful juicy burger as described in other reviews. Was disappointed. Was also underwhelmed with dirty tables (not that busy a time), inattentive counter people, incorrect order. Sorry to say, even the sundae I splurged on was disappointing - toppings did not taste fresh, custard was nothing special. If I'm going top splurge on the calories involved... More

This place reminded me of the foster's freeze I used to go to as a kid. Burger was very good and juicy, as was the custard. My wife loved her chili dog, and we shared some excellent fries and batter dipped onion rings. All around, it was VERY well done. The only comment I might make is that the soda... More

On a recent ride with buddies, we planned a stop to Spelunkers. My wife and I are on a diet (who isn't these days?), but our friend encouraged us to cheat. GREAT ADVICE!!! We each had the single bacon cheese CAVERN burger and fell in love! Incredible burger! You could tell the freshness. The bun was fresh, buttered and lightly... More

After a morning spent having a great time with my daughter, we went here on a friend's recommendation. The burgers were fresh and juicy, and the fries were hot and tasty. The burgers are a bit on the small side, so if you're really hungry, keep that in mind. Munchkin had chocolate frozen custard which she declared to be "awesome."... More

Locals know these burgers are made from meat that is never frozen. I ate there again Monday night and it was simple to get the cavern burger with cheese and all the fixin's combo. The fries are great Boardwalk fries you can add the malted vinegar to. The drinks are sodas or my favorite, sweet tea. Since I was hungry,... More

Food is absolutely outstanding with their burgers made just like you would on your grill. The burgers are a bit smaller than expected, but the quality makes up for it. Customer Service is superior.

Always heard people talking about this place but never actually felt like taking the drive. Was in the area and heard someone talking about it so I figured it couldn't be that bad. For everything we ordered it was about the price it would have been if we went to somewhere like McDonald's. The food was absolutely AMAZING, I ordered... More
