What is a trip to the boardwalk without Thrasher's French fries? They were as good as ever with extra salt and malt vinegar! Ate the whole med. size myself and had to skip dinner! Wouldn't have it any other way, staff fast and friendly as they worked a line 35-40 deep. These guys are amazing. You can get fries in... More

It's a must to go to Thrasher's French Fries when you are in Ocean City, Maryland. They come out hot and fresh....drain them with apple cider vinegar and salt and you are in heaven. I've eaten the fries for over 50 years. They have not changed.

Awesome fries. Probably the best I've ever had. I mean they are sort of greasy but idk how else fries are supposed to be. Walking around with a big bucket of these awesome fries will make your day. I was with 5 people when I got my bucket and I literally couldn't eat anymore I was so full and between... More

Eating Thrasher's fresh cut potatoes fried in peanut oil served with vinegar and salt with the ocean and beach in the background is a must try Ocean city tradition! Lines start early in season but go quickly. Not cheap but portions are large enough to share.

Had to try the french fries after reading the reviews. We tried the one at 401 Atlantic Ave on the boardwalk. The fries were great, burning hot and overflowing the cup. The employee taking my order though was more interested in what radio station to listen to. He never made eye contact with me, just stuck his hand out to... More

Best French fries on the boardwalk- you can really only get them on eastern shore areas (Delaware and Maryland beaches) - so yummy and cooked with peanut oil which makes them that much better. The one on boardwalk is always a line but moves fast and staff is always friendly and fast.

Don't let the lines scare you. I'm a local so I can attest to the fact that they move fast and the fries are worth the wait. The small is enough for one with a spouse stealing a few. Two people can share a medium and be stuffed. If you're really hungry and thin you could go for the large.... More

First time ever having Thrashers French fries, and hopefully it won't be my last! They are excellent I don't know what their secret is, but keep it up! Well worth the money. Give them a try, you will not be disappointed. You can find them on the boardwalk
