Queens is the largest borough of New York City, boasting a population of over 2.3 million residents. A huge amalgamation of people with diverse ethnicity has created a place that has thousands of great restaurants to eat at. In the past 3 years, we’ve been on a mission to try a new restaurant every single day, and we’re finally ready to share the findings of some of the best restaurants in Queens.
The #1 restaurant in Queens is Sac’s Place, located in Astora. This family-run Italian restaurant is the perfect cheap, first date spot. It’s got great food like crispy pizza and pasta, and the setting is very laid back. They have an array of Italian food, pastas, fish, soups, and salads, so there is sure to be something for everyone. The meal we highly recommend is the chicken parmigiana, which was thoroughly amazing. In addition to being a sit-down restaurant, they also offer delivery and catering options. Their family is from the Abruzzo region of Italy, and they bring tradition to Astoria with home cooked meals and only the freshest ingredients.
Not far from Astoria is another area of Queens called Woodside, known for affordable rent and quality restaurants. One such place is SriPraPhai, a Thai restaurant with an interesting mix of traditional Thai dishes. This hot and spicy cuisine explodes with flavor. The great food and reasonable prices create big lines, so book online or call early for a reservation.

There are many different horse trailers out there, so it’s
overwhelming to choose one. Should you
get the open trailer or the closed one?
Should it be a goose-neck trailer?
Does the box have enough ventilation for the horses to be
comfortable? These are all important
questions that you need an answer to before you pick one.
Fit the Trailer to Your Horses
The first thing to think about when you’re looking for a trailer is the size. Ideally, you should fit the trailer to your horses, instead of vice versa. Consider the height and weight of your horses. Can they stand up comfortably without touching the roof? Can the material the trailer is made from support their weight? You want a trailer that has about a foot of clearance overhead, minor clearance on the side so the horses don’t move around and get injured, and enough weight capacity for double what you think you’ll need. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. We make custom trailers to fit your horses’ specifications, but you can check each of our new and used units as well to see if they match.
Some horse trailers are made
from aluminum. However, basic aluminum
conducts heat very well, so internal temperatures can be uncomfortably high for
the horses. One unique solution to
consider is going for a custom horse trailer with a fiberglass coating. 4 Star aluminum horse trailers are a good
baseline, so add fiberglass on the roof or even around the entire shell to
deflect some of the sunlight. This will
keep the inside temperature much cooler, which your horses will appreciate.
Manger vs Walk Through
Walk-through style horse trailers are a better investment
because they’re safer. You can easily
walk the horse to the front of the trailer and step out without a problem. Manger-style trailers could trap you in the
front of the trailer with the horses, and you risk serious injury. Your safety and the safety of the horses is
our top priority, so be sure to order the correct style.
New Horse Trailers vs Used Horse Trailers
If you have the money, get the new trailer. They last for more than a decade and newer
versions have improved safety features that make the environment better for you
and your horses. Don’t worry about not
knowing all the different features of each.
You tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll guide you through the key
elements in order so you can make the right decision for you.
If money is a concern, buy a used horse trailer
instead. You won’t pay nearly as much
money and you can test out different types to see if it’s a good fit for your
The best option is for you to take one for a
test drive. We allow you to hook up a
trailer to your vehicle and take one of our representatives for a ride around
town to see how it handles. You’ll have
about a half hour with it to see if it’s a good fit. If not, no worries.
