Wow what a great experience this is like a white trash Fridays. The drinks were dirt cheap and delicious, but the only thing I cant figure out is why the waitress had all her teeth.
Horrible Place to go. Run away! – I went to this lounge for my party, I looked at the photos and thought it was going to be fun for all the decor. I even talked to the owner to help me reserve an area, when I got there the employees didn't know what I was talking about. I got to the location and all the decorations were not only cheap but DIRTY. We sat in the bowling area and it had a horrible draft! My guests were freezing and the waiter was not friendly at all. I managed to slowly move my party away from the bowling area and to tables in the middle of the area. It was a painful process. I only had fun because of my friends but the venue didn't help. Also what type of sick videos doesn't this venue play? My guests couldn't help but notice the killing and murder black and white movies on the tv screen. I would never go here again even if my life depended on it!
August 2010 – I spent 6 hours here in august of this year. Everything I could want in a bar called Trailer Park!! Buy Backs included! When was the last time the bar tender nodded and gave you a drink in manhattan?
The Tater Tots? Lets just say they were outstanding when I was sober and hours later when the rest of my ladies and comrades showed up and we were all boozed up they were outstandingly amazing!
If you are in the area, hit this place, hit it hard and dont forget the camera!
Not so special drink specials. – Good food and snappy service, but caveat emptor: The recited drink specials may have tacit footnotes. I ordered a $5 margarita up during Happy Hour and was billed $6 because it contained "extra alcohol." The waitress wouldn't (couldn't) correct it, and the bartender wouldn't back down, either. Obviously, Trailer Park is not interested in cultivating a customer relationship with me. Perhaps they have all the business they need, but in this economy, that could quickly change. It was just a dollar's worth of principal, but I won't go back.
great bachelorette party! – Hosted a bachelorette party here for a friend last night, and we had a blast! They technically don't take reservations, but said if I called the day of, they'd hold a table for our group of 7. Went off without a hitch. Our friendly waitress even took a polaroid of our group and put it in a little frame for the bride-to-be to take home. The margaritas were killer, the food was just what it should have been--love those tater tots! Fun, colorful place, great for a low-key party.
Not very friendly.... – If this place is supposed to reflect the ambience of a trailer park, the trailer park in question houses some of the crabbiest people in the city. I attempted to have my birthday party there. Bear in mind that previous birthday parties at Flannary's pub on 14th street and Welcome to the Johnsons at Rivington paint me as the perfect person to have a birthday at Trailer Park.
First, I emailed Trailer Park a week in advance to let them know that 30+/- people would be there. No reply. Second, 1 day before the event, I called, and they said we should just show. Third, upon showing up with 3 friends for a pre-party bite to eat, the waitress seated 3 parties in front of us, and pointedly ignored us. When asked when we'd be seated she was angry that we were pestering her.
After we sat and ate, we continued to occupy the table, ordering copious amounts of alcohol, when we were told we had to leave the table and stand. We did, and friends began showing up. The bartender was, well, mean. He yelled at me for not ordering fast enough. He yelled at other friends for similar reasons (I'm a practiced drinker, so not ordering fast enough seems silly). Several of my friends (8 of them) left my party to go to a different bar because they hated the waitress and bartender so much.
But, the bouncer (wearing a Jets jersey) was really nice. I think he was actually apologetic for the attitude we were getting from the bartender/waitress combo.
So I'm okay with a bar that absolutely has no buy-backs ever. I'm okay with a bar that won't let you sit a table and drink. But I was less than impressed that the staff here was simply mean. Honestly - this is a great place to go with one or two people to have tater tots, but if you want to have a big night, pick a place that has a nicer staff. I was embarrassed.
In closing, I have never written a review on Citysearch before, and have lived in the city for 10 years. The night was really not good. Bear this in mind...
The hipster bartender rocked our world;fab scenery – I read the "rude service" review and was horrorified. This chick was bugging, she must have thought it was her trailer park at home. First off, any bar u go to u freakin gotta tip, at least $1, of course if u don't , ur gonna get crappy service. It's karma, cause and effect and common sense, bartenders work off tips.
This place was cool. The decor alone is worth the trip. The dude bartending was a cute hipster from Willy'b. Sweet and accomadating, greatly appreciative of the tips and even did the mostly extinct buy back after 2 drinks. But again, we tipped and tipped well, that's the key to good service and w/ a smile.
2 thumbs up 4 trailer park!! 2 thumbs down 4 the "rude service" reviewer, wicky wack.
RUDE SERVICE! – I went to TRAILER PARK with my BF a few months ago for the first time even though I must've passed by it a million times before. The decor is fun and the food smelled good BUT the service sucked! Here's what I mean - My BF and I sat at the bar and he had ONE beer (which by the way was overly priced) and I just had some water cause I wasn't in the mood to drink. When we were done we got up to leave and the bartender had the nerve to yell "THANKS FOR THE TIP!" A tip is earned... not just handed out and it's a good thing he didn't leave her anything because she definitely didn't deserve it. Here's a tip for her from us, "learn some manners!" We were extremely unhappy and will never come back! SORRY!
burger and beer – this place rocks, from the music to the $5 happy hour strawberry and mango margaritas we had a great time...we started in the 'bowling alley' until our entire group arrived, we sipped on margaritas and munched on vegetarian nachos...then we moved to a table where we took advantage of the $7.50 burger & beer special (mon&tue)...good food and drinks! the waitress and bartender were silly and fun, a bonus on such a great night out.
You gotta go here!!! – This place is fun at its best! I went with a group of friends and we all had a blast. The decor is a trip, gotta see it for yourself, you feel like you've travelled back in time. The music they play makes you want to get up and dance and order more drinks!! Speaking of drinks the frozen margaritas kick butt!!! They are strong and get the job done. The food is fantastic! One of the best burgers I've had in NYC and cooked exactly as I like it, medium rare baby!! Everything comes with your choice of tater tots (yeah that's right Napoleon, TOTS!!!) or sweet potato fries. As far as the cost, this please is a great deal: drinks are strong, food is delicious with good size servings. The staff is great..totally friendly and fun yet professional. They also have a great Happy Hour everyday from 4-7.
