Hiding in plain site. That's Spelunker's. The classic fast-food style building has frozen custard. The homey stands nearby that say "Kustard?" Well according to some in town they just serve fro-yo, not real frozen custard (higher egg content for serious richness) like Spelunker's.
flavor of the day. Peach and jimmies on the Saturday we went. Rice Krispie Treat (with marshmallow and puffed rice cereal) on Sunday. I know because I had all four flavors! Seester brought some back before we headed to tube. Then Karl, Shuanica, DrChillyD, and I rolled there after brunch to get more custard.
And a dog. Because the look on my sister's face when she described the Spelunker Dog was...ummm...well she liked it. A lot. And now I know why.
A ripper style dog with a spicy mustard and a sublimely-complex, spicy-rich, sweet-with tang, succulently-caramelized onion relish.
I asked if they sold it by the quart. Seriously.
Silver lining to them not? Staff said they guessed if I called a few days ahead when I was coming to town, I could ask the manager to make an extra batch.
Yeah...they make it in house.
It may well be THE ULTIMATE hot dog topping.
And I'm originally from a State that has serious opinions about hot dog toppings.
It was as close to perfection as you could get. Snap of the dog. Soft bun. Spicy mustard. Hot/Sweet/Tart Onion Relish.
If I hadn't just had breakfast, with a stop at the BBQ trailer on the way south to the Skyline Drive, and then more tacos before heading back home...I might have ordered a second.
