Best French fries

Best French fries on the boardwalk! Deliciously crispy with soft inside. Great with extra vinegar or without.

What can i say, really good fries. Better than most fast food places. A little pricey, but you get a giant cup overflowing with fries. So, I guess well worth it. Oh, the seagulls hover around waiting for food and I saw a woman get crapped on waiting in line, so be careful! Lol

You must try Thrashers fries. Mmmmmm, mmmm ,mmmmm. Don't ask for ketchup. There isn't any but the vinegar and salt you can add is right there

There are three Thrashers on or near the boardwalk. The large fry was $9.50 so it was not cheap. They are like fair fries except thicker. No ketchup is served just salt and vinager. Some people buy one and get a drink container to dump fries in so you can evenly salt and vinager the fries. The other fry places... More

Perfectly cooked and excellent customer service! The staff are friendly and prompt with their service. The fries are always perfectly cooked and seasoned, the counter is always spotlessly clean. I live locally and visit regularly.

Fresh fried in peanut oil, Thrashers has been doing what they do on the OC boards for decades, and doing it well. The fries are crisp, and not too greasy, and you will return once you get hooked. Just look for the long line and get in place. You wont be dissapointed.

What can I say? If you're at the beach in Maryland or Delaware, you must have Thrasher's fries. (I think it's a law.) They're best shared, so you can eat them hot, right out of the deep fryer. And hope that your companion likes vinegar, because they're best with a splash on top!

Ok... so fries aren't the most sophisticated thing you can eat. And on the beach, it's pretty mean fare. Now, Thrasher's cuts fresh potatoes and fries them in peanut oil... good fries! However... no ketchup??? Oy!

At least once during a visit to Rehoboth Beach, you need to get these awesome fries. They are always freshly fried with the right amount of salt. I like them with vinegar. If there is a line, it will move quickly. Friendly staff.
