The Original Boardwalk Fries and Still the Best!

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!

Not only do they have HUGE buckets of fries.. but they have HUGE buckets of DELICIOUS fries! I did see way too many people feeding seagulls as they have seemed to really taken a liking to stealing your fries as well - but I can't blame them.

One of the traditions of the Rehoboth DE boardwalk is a stop at Thrasher's for the fries. As far as I know, that's all they have. And they don't have ketsup, so don't ask. Delicious!

Every year we hit up Thrashers. We get a giant bucket of fries and split with the group. It's a MUST have item while on the beach and no trip is complete without them.

While they're great, ask them to double fry them. They're crispier, I like them with salt and malt vinegar.
