“A variation of fast food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

The burgers were good, my son had fish n chips and liked them a lot. The chicken strips were also fresh made on site as well as the fries. Overall very good meal but maybe a little too on the greasy side. Order at the counter/they bring it to the table. Still better than a fast food drive through and definitely family friendly.

“Great little place that I was initially a bit put off by..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

I never would have stopped here just driving past, but am really glad I did. The frozen custard is the creamiest and best I have ever had and the burgers and fries are amazing. The prices are fast food but the food taste and quality is not. Crisp pickles and lettuce on the burgers which were cooked just right and thick, sweet and creamy custard to top it all off. Next time I am in Front Royal driving through to the mountains this will be my stopping place!

“Never would have stopped here had I not read Trip Advisor's reviews”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Spelunker's is a drive thru and dine in restaurant/frozen custard stand. We stopped here on our way to Skyline Caverns. It is just about a mile and a half from there. My grandson wanted to drive thru and eat in the car, so we did. I was happily surprised that the hamburgers were delicious! They have jr. burgers for the kids and he got his plain with a vanilla milkshake (creamy and also delicious from the small taste I was able to get). Mine had everything-tomato, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, pickles, onions and light on the mayo, like I requested. Juicy burgers, not made ahead-we had to pull up and wait a few minutes for someone to run our order out to us.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Purposely stay in Front Royal on our travels just to get our burger & custard fix. The absolute best @ a ridiculously low price.
