Fry reviewer Laura Kinir said her list was the result of researching message boards and social media, which was narrowed down to encompassed various regions and fry types.
“Thrasher’s topped our list of boardwalk fries (loads of recommendations, faithful clientele, good ol’ fashioned potato taste), which seem to thrive mostly in the mid-Atlantic,” she said via email.
Thrasher’s came in at No. 11 out of 26 on the list, and competition was stiff.
