A must!

I don't care if you're on a diet! This is the beacH and these are the best beach fries in the world. You'll probably start out with a small, maybe medium, but by the time you leave, you'll be carrying the tub! Be sure to add vinegar and salt! Tip: if you're sitting on the beach with your tub... read more

They have very good french fries, it feels like they use the "Belgium's method" of double fry. Very crispy and greasy like the french fries have to be. What it gives this place the "added value" is the Apple Vinegar on the fries if you want... I would never think it would taste that good. A lot better than I... More

Believe that Thrashers did not come to Rehoboth Beach until the 1990s. Believe it originated in Ocean City, MD. On my infrequent visits to Ocean City, I always made sure to get some fries from Thrashers. Now, Rehoboth Beach has at least 3 outlets near or on the Boardwalk. During the off season, at least one Thrashers is open. Love... More

These fries put McDonalds to shame! A bit pricy, but with vinegar sprinkled on top, they can serve as lunch. The best fries in the entire area. Fresh from real potatos, sliced right in front of you!

My fries were old and soggy! Go when they have a line so you know your getting hot fresh fries. It was a cold day yesterday and not very busy so the fries were probably sitting for a while, they tasted old and we're soggy not crispy. I've had way better fries from here. The guy working was also rude,... More

Having grown up with Thrasher's when vacationing in Ocean City, MD I couldn't wait to have some on a recent visit to Rehoboth after a more than 10 year hiatus. I drenched than in vinegar and managed to keep the seagulls away while savoring each delectable fry!!!

Their renowned french fries seem average to me. I prefer Five Guys (just down Rehoboth Avenue a couple of blocks).

I can't say enough good things about these fries. I used to think that the place called "Boardwalk Fries" was the best but that place changed when they started opening locations away from the beach. Thrasher's gives you more fries than I can usually eat in one order. My wife and I usually share an order. The fries are a... More

All the greatness of Thrashers but usually a shorter line. Please don't feed the seagulls! They're so fat & they can really make a mess.
