The custard is exceptionally great. The only unpleasant part of the visit is that you can only get a cup or cone of custard thru the drive-thru. If you want a banana split or sundae you have to go inside. The fries are boardwalk style...More

One of the best burgers and milkshakes I've ever had! It was very crowded and little parking, but I see why, it was SO good! We parked down the road a bit, but worth the short walk. The staff was constantly busy and cleaning off...More

I was practically licking the bag. Fries where amazing, typically skip the fries at most places... Definitely not here. Have heard great things about the onion rings, looking forward to trying them on my next visit!

No better than the BK or McD down the road. The other two would be cheaper. The service was ok, the place itself was filthy.

Literally the best cheeseburgers in the world. My daughter thinks the icecream is the best too. Chicken tenders are great too, but you have to try the cheeseburger. You will crave it from then on. Great servers, very fast and clean place also. Highly recommend

When ever we visit the D.C. area we make the trip out to Spelunker's. The vanilla frozen custard is my favorite and well worth the hour drive out to Front Royal
