Line was long but well worth it, it went quickly. Trying to vinegar was pleasantly surprised! I think I counted 12 to 13 people working in the stand there quick and efficient

Thrasher's is a tradition for us everytime we go to OCMD. This time was our first real disappointment. We were served fries that seemed to have not been shaken for even a second - literally swimming in oil, with puddle left at bottom of cup....THEN, charged $11.50 for a medium cup. I fully understand that prices have increased on everything recently, but this is completely out of line. Very sad to think that I don't expect to be tempted to ever go back.More

We wanted to try these fries, since multiple, separate people said we HAD to get them when they learned we were going to the OC Boardwalk. We got the "combo" - a medium fry and a large drink for around $13 I believe. The fries...were good, but nothing incredibly special. They tasted a lot like Penn Station fries, which I get all the time for a lot less money. Probably won't do it again, but I could be sold on the idea that you "have to" try them at least once.More

I really dont taste what the fuss is all about. They were to oily for my liking. Had to put a lot of salt on them to get rid of the peanut oil taste. To each their own.

Haven’t had them for such a long time. But o baby that first bite of a thrasher’s French fry was awesome. Yummy salt and vinegar. Who thought of it? Cause it is so good.

They make the best boardwalk fries I have ever had in my life. They are just simply amazing. They have the perfect amount of salt every time. They unfortunately do use peanut oil, which one family member is allergic to and has to eat elsewhere.

As someone who doesn't like most fries, these were crispy with a decent flavor though malt vinegar makes most things taste better too.

It is not as good as some people try to lead you to believe in. They are overly oily and greasy. Taste is only average in my book. You will only find bits and pieces of fries in half of the cup. It is another...one of those "try it, done that" so you can move on. Definitely not worth the money that they are charging you for.More

We talked these fries up to our teenage daughter. The fries were terrible. Burnt and they are just pushing the crowd though like an assembly line. The staff was nice but the fries were awful. Living on past name and past reputation as a OC...landmarkMore

Definitely a tradition for our family. We've had Thrasher's fries many times and they never disappoint. Sometimes a bucket of fries is our entire lunch. I can do without the vinegar though. A little salt is all you need. The line usually long but moves...quickly.More

All we heard about the boardwalk is getting Thresher Fries. So we got the fries and meh...they're ok. Personally think Five Guys is a lot better.

Not sure what the hype is about for this place. $7.50 for a small fries and it does not even taste good. Such a waste of money.
