I ate so many tater tots here one night, I FEEL like a tater tot. This place is lots of fun. Great place to sit down with a group of friends, have a few beers and eat some white trash food. My turkey burger was great, but the real winner were the tots. The sweet potato fries are tossed in cinnamon sugar...which I'm sort of on the fence about. A friend of mine ordered and shared the regular nachos with the table, and they were deliciously disgusting, I can't believe I waxed poetic over a cheese whiz-type product. Love this place, not too crowded, not too expensive, great music, a place to SIT DOWN (I'm "old" these things are important in a bar), wait staff were so nice and attentive, never let my can of PBR get too empty and didn't mind that we were a group of 4 that grew to 6 that grew to 8 and we all ordered food at different times. Fantastic place for a party!

Worth your time in every single aspect. I have been numerous times, and for me it is like a little slice of home. I'm from rural Indiana and just moved here for grad school in August, so finding this place was a nice (albeit over-the-top) slice of home. From the greasy food, to the very reasonable prices given it's New York, this place is top-notch. Every friend I have taken there thoroughly enjoys the experience, and if you've got the gusto, order the Lover's Concerto. A margarita literally as big as your head and very likely to destroy the brain that lies within it. All in all, you will not be disappointed, so check it out!

From the squeeky-hinged screen door to the sparkle-vinyl seats, Trailer Park is kitch all the way. There's so much to look at, I was thoroughly entertained during my lunch I took alone. The bartender greeted me with a "What can I do you for, sweetheart?" is an assumingly faux Mid-West accent. It was a blast to play along, and to be treated with the curteous familiarity that contrasts with the beloved cool respect of New York. I enjoyed a Veggie Burger and Tater tots. The tots were crisped and salted to perfection, and the Veggie Burger chunky. The server insisted the veggie burger was out of a freezer when I inquired, which kind of put off the $7. But what wasn't made up for in value food-wise was certainly salvaged in the decor. It was so fun to look through all the memorabilia, and details such as the red/yellow squeeze bottles on the table hugging the roll of paper towels as napkins. I'll definately go back, as it's such a seperate experience from anywhere else in New York. And come on, can you ever resist tots?

After reading the reviews thought this would be a good place to eat. Sweet potato fries and mac and cheese were great ... would definitely go again

This place is great. Come for a burger and beer. You won't be disappointed. I usually come before going to a movie at the Clearview across the street. If you don't like the sweet potato fries, then just order the tator tots.

On our first evening in NYC, we selected this spot that we had seen on the Food Network. What a winner! Entering the restaurant was just like a throwback to an old trailer park, screen door and all. Kitchey lamps, unmatched padded vinyl chairs, velvet pictures of Elvis and Marilyn - it had it all! But, the best part was the food - great burgers and the sweet potato fries were the highlight of our entire New York trip. Our waitress was great - bringing us our food, hot off the grill. $5.00 Margarita was strong and refreshing. Only one other couple when we arrived, but place was full an hour later when we left. Not too loud, nor were tables crowded, great place to kick back and just enjoy a meal without pretention or attitude. Go - you'll be glad you did! We have already recommended to lots of friends in the City and will certainly be back on our return trip to NYC.

I've "dined" at the lounge on many occasions at different times and have always enjoyed the service and atmosphere. I have also recommended the Lounge to others whom are from out of town and just wanted a fun and reasonably price place to eat. All I can say if you are yearning for an unrushed dining experience outside of your normal daily routine-head to the Trailer Park and don't forget to order the sweet potatoe fries.
