I had to try because EVERYONE in the area says it's the best fries. Meh, they probably are but they are whipping them out in mass quantities that they are overdone or sitting under lights too long. They also don't have ketchup.

I'm not so sure what makes these fries "famous." Sure they are fried in peanut oil but the place doesn't even serve ketchup! Who makes ONLY french fries and doesn't serve ketchup? But the lack of tomato based condiments is not the reason for the low review. They just aren't that good and they are super expensive for just an... More

No trip to the beach is complete without a visit to Thrasher's fries. They have walk-ups in Rehoboth Beach, DE and Ocean City, MD. They are sidewalk counters: no tables, no counter for eating. You order on the sidewalk and once you've gotten your order, you need to move off. It's part of the tradition. They have seasonings like Old... More

Somehow whenever we come to the boardwalk, we end up with a container of Thrasher's even if we are not hungry. The thought of apple cider vinegar on fresh salted fries makes our mouths water. A little pricey but pretty typical for the boardwalk. Ask for a tray so you can easily share your fries.

The fries here were sooo amazing that it almost should be banned and not allowed. After getting lunch we stopped here for an order of their fires that we had heard so much about.. There were three of us and we decided to share a medium size one for the 3 of us. The fires were crispy on the outside... More

It's as good as everyone says. Worth buying and waiting on lines. We haven't tried with vinegar yet but we will. Small is big enough.

Very expensive but a must have once a year at the boardwalk. Always add vinegar, never ask for ketchup!
