“you've never had beach fries like these”

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 skepticism, 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. The process Thrasher originated was based upon quality ingredients, hard work, and above all attention to the perfection of each cup of fries. What a discovery! Of the product itself, Thrasher found that only the highest quality potato would suffice. This meant that potatoes had to be bought from different regions, if not states, for different times of the season. Only the best would do for this hard-hosed professional.  For labor, Mr., Thrasher relied upon a group of hard working girls from a Christian affiliated school in Georgia. These dedicated young women ran the operation for many years. Boss Thrasher would house the girls in a dormitory above the present Bank of Ocean City.   Tradition rules and quality still reign supreme. There will be no deviation from original procedures or original recipes. Only experience and exquisite attention to detail have allowed Thrasher's to grow and flourish as few businesses have, nowhere will more emphases on quality be found. Nowhere will be a better fry be found - anywhere! There are now three locations in Ocean City Maryland and three in Rehoboth Beach Delaware.  Come find out for yourself what all the fuss is about.  You will not be disappointed.

Thrashers is a landmark in Rehoboth Beach since 1929. They have several stalls in a small area on the board walk and they are so worth a visit. They do French fries. Well, that doesn't do them... Read more
