The fries here beat Thrashers any day hands-down! Ask for them well-done if you like them a little crispy, otherwise they get a bit mushy if you add vinegar. Also had a fried scallop Po'Boy...basically anything fried in their peanut oil is delicious!!! Great find

We are so happy we found this place before we left Bethany Beach. It is a bit pricey but the seafood was delicious! I had the scallops & my family all had something different & loved it. The fries are the best. Family owned & run. You can't sit down there but we found a cute place to sit right... More

Beats Thrashers Fries in a head to head battle hands down...and that's saying a lot! Nothing like dusting these bad boys in some sea salt..vinegar..and Cajun spice..delicious!

Have never eaten anything but the fries, which are the best in Bethany! You might have a little wait as they are always busy, but well worth the wait!

Real potatoes and good oil make these fries great. We've been eating them for many years, and we keep coming back.

Their fries are the best.. and fried oysters are fresh and light. The staff is always friendly and willing to help you.

We ventured beyond the fries recently and have been back yet again for the shrimp po boy. Sandwich is great and the fries may be a nudge ahead of thrashers. I don't think the prices are high and the quality is great. They also have a place in the gallery around the corner with tables. We will definitely keep going... More

Really enjoyed the lobster roll last night. Lots of big pieces and tasty sauce. Apparently you can go inside and have it hot with melted butter. Will try that another time. Fries are what you would hope for, rough cut and slightly crisp on outside. Cole slaw was very tasty

We have been coming to Bethany Beach 4 or 5 times a year for over a decade. D B Fries has been a staple for us. My son grew up on the clam strips and my daughter lives for the fried shrimp. The food is always hit and fresh, cooked to order perfectly. The scallops are my wife's favorite and... More

With the iconic fries place at the boardwalk still closed for the season, tried this spot...definitely good, but not the best, alas...lacking a bit of crisp, out of the pan a tad too quick! Also had the mahi mahi tacos, fish good but a bit wet w/the sauce.
