than to be in Rehoboth eating Thrasher's fries. They are an institution, a sacrament. Putting malt vinegar on them is an absolute requirement. No ketchup, however. That's sacrilege. Good price too for the bucket or cups that you get spilling over with wonderful fries cooked in peanut oil, I believe.

The lines are long for a reason! Great beach fries that everyone, even the seagull's, love to eat. Put a little vinegar on before you walk away and enjoy!

As a Brit I am used to good chips - but these are some of the best I have ever had! We visit the Delaware shores annually to visit family and we always make time for a visit to Thrashers!If you require condiments you have to bring them yourself as they only provide vinegar. Overall amazing hand cut chips!

This place is the best! We always make a trip to Thrashers whenever we are in Rehoboth! Best fries I have tasted! Highly recommend with some malt vinegar!

A bit too limp for my taste, as I love a crispy fry, but a trip to the beach is never the same without Thrashers!

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!
