gringoj thanks for the feedback. approximately what time did you come yesterday, just asking so we can troubleshoot. Unsure why you'd only get two dine in trays and not enough for everyone when we have hundreds.

about the wing sauces: being outside of the mainland we get them one of two ways, by pallet or by cases by air (which is the most expensive option). another problem with the air option is about 50% of the cases open up in transit which can cause a two to three week delay in getting here, which is why we are down now. At any rate we've got a pallet arriving in miami tomorrow and here next monday so we think the shortage will be alleviated.

we're also upgrading the fish recipe and fully rolling out the spicy and original fish in about a week. the sandwiches should be in full force and effect later this week, creating shorter wait times.

we're finally rolling out a new menu, with new sides sometime in the next week. in the next month we're hoping to roll out the grilled chicken option.

I was there around 5. I know its harder to get stuff here, but bbq sauce can easily be had at any of the grocery stores here. I'm sure the plate thing was just a lack of common sense. Maybe when I asked for plates, they did not equate plates to trays? The logical response would have been "we don't have plates but we have trays would you like some of those?" The crew seemed to be working hard in the back so maybe I caught them off guard with the question.

Wouldn't it be more cost effective to make your own sauces?

The wholesale food merchants also carry a large variety of sauces in wholesale containers. In the last couple of years I had my restaurant I did a BBQ night one night a week and basically made my own sauces by using the commercial products, mixing them and tweaking them with other ingredients to create unique blends. It's very expensive (and I can't imagine it could possibly be cost effective) to rely on specially ordered products to run a restaurant here unless you have several outlets.

Alana it is alot cheaper. We use the same manufacturer as buffalo wild wings on the wing sauces and we've even attempted to license the recipes and equipment to do it locally, shipping it by mail doubles the cost, but we can get smaller loads, doing it by the pallet is obviously expensive since we have to buy hundreds of gallons at a time.

Old Tart we are working on getting dry goods in to make our own in sauces... so we'll check out Merchants and Quality to mix some up tonight.

On grilled fish, we're planning on rolling out both fish and chicken, but need to find the right kinda fish at the right price to hit the affordable price points.

Dear Leo 🙂
I wanted to let management and staff to know what a great job you are doing! Over the past few months I have enjoyed many good meals...from chicken finger baskets to salads...and I have to say that every single time the experience has been terrific. The people working there have been very VERY friendly 🙂 and the food has always been fresh, hot and tasty. Several friends have tried Leos now...and they too agree that your restaurant is a welcome addition for St Croix. THANK YOU ALL for working so hard to bring great food at a very reasonable price to our expensive little island! Keep up the good work!

Leo,
We're have our tickets to come down the second half of September. We will definitely give you a try. You are working hard to produce a good product.
