We stopped at a Thrashers store front while walking the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach. These fries are a local treat and are eaten with vinegar. They were absolutely fresh and unique. They are served in generous portions and cooked up very well. Something new to try while in Delaware.

My family has been going to Rehoboth Beach for years and every summer one of the highlights is multiple visits to Thrasher's. Although maybe not the healthiest meal, it is a "must do". Their fries are the best I've ever had and whether you like them with or without vinegar, it's a treat regardless. Do not miss a stop here,... More

Say Thrashers to anyone who has been to the Eastern shores and you dream of fresh fries done in peanut oil, drained & placed in a cup and covered with vinegar and salt (if you choose) or naked. Walking the board walk with possibly the best fries anywhere. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Visits are not... More

The rain had finally cleared away, and we were walking down the boardwalk and couldn't resist trying these fries. They made them to order, and with vinegar and salt were just delish! Better than all those candy kitchens with taffy on every corner.

Thrasher's fries are an ocean tradition and we love getting a large to share among family. They're hot, overflowing, and perfectly cooked. There are multiple locations so that it's easy to get your French fry fix. We enjoy it every visit to rehoboth!

I don't understand the mystique and lure behind Thrashers. For four dollars I got a cup of greasy recooked potato sponges. Five Guys does a better job!

I always eat Thrasher's French Fries at the shore. The larger one on the boardwalk was closed, but the small one on the street was open and I was grateful. Even in the drizzling rain, they can't be beat!

I look forward to Thrasher's fries everytime we come to Rehoboth. They are fresh, hot, tasty and addictive. They are a bit greasy, so I can't give them 5 stars, but hey they are french fries!

Thank GardenG
