Celebrate National French Fry Day in Ocean City
July 13 is National French Fry Day. In Ocean City, nothing goes better with the beach than a cup of salty French fries. If you head down the Ocean City Boardwalk, you’ll find a culinary landmark, Thrasher’s French Fries.
About Thrasher’s French Fries
Thrasher’s French Fries began in 1929 when J.T. Thrasher moved from Georgia to Ocean City. He proposed a concession stand that would specialize in one product only, French fries. Despite some initial skepticism, Thrasher proceeded with his plan and established his fries as a staple in Ocean City.
Thrasher’s has been named “Best French Fry” locally and by a number of nationally recognized sources for several years. If you’re not a local, you should know that the best way to eat Thrasher’s fries is with salt and apple cider vinegar—no ketchup.
