Being from Baltimore, I never heard of Spelunkers before. But we drove by and decided to stop and I'm glad we did. The food was very good and made to order. I will return next time I'm in Front Royal.

Spelunkers is one of the top rated places to eat in town because it always delivers a great experience whether you come in or use the drive thru; whether you come for the tasty and juicy cavern burger or the frozen custard; whether the custard is plain or the flavor of the day. Today is was a late lunch of... More

If you are looking for a great burger, fries and maybe even frozen custard for dessert, this is the place for you. Their hand-made beef patty burgers will surely satisfy your hunger but if they don't, their frozen custard is an excellent finish to any meal. It is a little ways off from the highway exit but definitely worth the... More

Like Schmucker's and Fundrucker's, Spelunker's has to be good, right? Rated as the No. 1 restaurant in Front Royal, Virginia, according to Tripadvisor, Spelunker's Frozen Custard and Cavern Burgers is as good as advertised. Located at 116 South Front Street, Spelunker's is a popular destination for locals and for tourists who are going to or coming from scenic Skyline Drive... More

I got a milkshake and it was good and fast not much more to say as I didn't try anything else. The place looked clean and inviting and I wanted a milkshake.

Really juicy burgers with a nice crisp exterior. It's fast, super convenient and a whole lot better than the chains.

We were heading onto Skyline Drive and decided to stop to eat before we did. We were looking for more of a general restaurant, not fast food, but decided to try this. We were glad we did. The burgers were very good and the order of fries we shared was also really good. The atmosphere is much like a fast... More

Real beef cooked perfect, taste great & served on toasted buns. Fries are freshly cut, tastes good and there is malt vinegar on the table for them. May look like another fast food place but the quality of food is far superior!! The option to order it their way or ordering a customized burger your way. Didn't try but heard... More

Spelunkers has really good burgers at a reasonable price. It also has fabulous custard. Every day they post the flavor of the day on the board outside, luring in Front Royal's faithful customers. This is one of the local places we take friends from out of town for a fast lunch or snack. During the warm months, we often drive... More
