In 1929, a Georgian known as Mr. J.T. Thrasher introduced a unique concept into the business community of Ocean City, Maryland. This creative Southerner proposed a food stand concession which would specialize in only one product: the noble french fry. Meeting with sketpicism, Mr. Thrasher, an extremely religious man, forged ahead with his fledgling enterprise. His idea? Simply to produce the best tasting french fry ever eaten—past, present, or future. He did…
Thrasher’s fries is the only place to get fries in Ocean City. Nothing else even comes close to how delicious these fries are. They have the perfect amount of crispiness and are always piping hot. The portion size is also great so expect the fries to be overflowing from the top of the cup. These are probably the best fries you can buy so if you have the chance, don’t hesitate to get them.
Prepare yourself for a wait, but the wait is well worth it! I went an hour after they opened (11am on Thursday) and there wasnt a line at all. The fries are so simple and delicious. It is becoming a tradition of mine to come here every year and get these! So go on and treat yourself! You won’t be disappointed!
Words escape me when it comes to how much I love Thrasher’s French Fries. They are a must anytime I come up to visit my parents. You must try them and see for yourself why EVERYONE loves them.
Truly some of the absolute best fries you will ever have. Crispy, hot, AMAZING. I don’t care if there is only 5 people or 50 people in line, I’m always making a stop here while in the area. They are definitely fast which helps not minding the line when it is there 🙂
Bottom line, they are the best fries in the United States. The sea air, combined with the salt and vinegar make this place a go to every time. Doesn’t matter how cold or hot it is, we stop here every time we are in town.
Thrasher’s is still just as good as it was when you were a kid! You know ya wanna cover those things in cider vinegar… Go on, do it! The trick is still to try and eat em all before the vinegar eats thru the bottom of your cup! 😉
Watch the Line!
