We were in town for a basketball tournament and Spelunker's was recommended. Growing up in the area, I did not know this place was here. I do now and I can not wait until I go back again. The restaurant is in a converted Long John Silver but the burgers and food coming out is on par with the tastiest... More

We had lunch here with the family and it was great! We had the cavern burgers with cheese and the philly cheese steak deluxe with their fresh cut fries. Everyone enjoyed their meals and topped it off with their frozen custard and milkshake. The service was excellent and very friendly! No need to get your burgers and fries at fast... More

What a special treat. A friend and I were on business, and needed something quick and simple. By the time we had gotten our table, drinks, and shed our coats... or order was delivered to our table. We ordered the single cheeseburger and fries. They arrived HOT. The burger was done to perfection and juicy and the fries were delish!... More

This is my guilty pleasure when I just want a burger and fries. If you don't want a salad, or anything else but burger and fries, and you are on a budget, this is your place too. Expect to pay $8.36 for a plain bacon cheeseburger, fries and a drink. I have paid much more at other eating establishments in... More

Burgers were awful - dry. Lettuce was wilted and had several rotten pieces in it. The milkshakes were just plain nasty tasting - definitely not real ice cream! Prices were high. Will not stop here again!

We visited on a Sat. Busy, but staff was courteous, caring and attentive. Great experience! Servers provided a low carb option of a hamburger wrapped in lettuce. Best handmade burger in town.

Spelunkers is Fantastic!! The best burgers anywhere. The absolute best Grilled Cheese! The best fries, Cheesesteak are all great! But the best of all is the custard. You will never want another ice cream anywhere. The owners are wonderful people. We love the employees too. The best of Front Royal, Virginia, everywhere.

A god friend raved about their hamburgers, so we made the trip. If you are acquainted with Culver's Restauants in the Midwest, Spelunkers will remind you of them. White exterior with blue trim, this restaurant has been here quite some time. Their hamburgers are good, but the onion rings' batter leaves much to be desired. This restaurant is obviously very...
