Great Shore Fries!

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... read more

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

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.

I like fries, these are good. So good that I want them for every meal? Nope, but they are fresh, crisp and delicious.

The best handcut, peanut oil fried fries on the coast, This is the Rehoboth outpost of the OC original, tastes the same and with a dash of vinegar I am in heaven. Hot and salty, staring at the sea. This is the best. A must do!!

It would not be a trip to the beach without Thrashers Fries. Best hand cut fries. They have salt and vinegar and that is the way to eat them. Anything else would ruin them. Don't bother with the small size. Go large to start with. It will save you walking back after you see how good they are. for a... More

It just isn't the Rehoboth boardwalk without some Thrasher's fries drizzled in salt and vinegar! They're handcut potatoes, fried in some special kind of oil (peanut maybe?), and they serve them hot and crispy to order. Just be careful of the seagulls - they may fight you for your fries!

If you are going to be on the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach Thrasher's Fries is a must! Forget about your diet, these fries are great....and don't forget to top them with a generous dose of apple vinegar !

Delicious, tasty, fresh cups of boardwalk fries which are definitely a must-have during any beach trip! A little expensive, but that is to be expected in a resort area. This place doesn't serve ketchup, but the fries do not need it. A small cup is the perfect size for 2. Just watch out for the seagulls!
