Please don't expect the fast food restaurants to be even similar to the stateside counterparts. I frequent Villa La Reine McDonalds because I work nearby. They have been out of chocolate and strawberry shakes, apple pie and cinnamon for oatmeal for months. The place is filthy. They burnt my english muffin and I knew it because I smelled the burnt bread through the bag before I even opened it. When I complained to the manager she said" I don't know the owner's name. They are off island. I don't know the owner's number. They are off island. I don't know when the owner will come back. They are off island. They are off island. They are off island..." I called corporate headquarters and they told me to call 340-773-3119 which is a DISCONNECTED number. I called corporate headquarters back and they said all they can do is give me the disconnected number. I WILL NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN!

This must be directed towards people who don't yet live here but are thinking about it as I can't imagine that anyone who lives here expects anything else.

Why do you keep going back anyway when all of your visits (months and months) there have been so disappointing and the place is "filthy" - are you a masochist?

These are the little things in life in the VI that can drive some people crazy.
Not everyone is meant for island life.
One often finds this at all McDonalds as well as Kentucky Fried and other fast food places in the VI.
They are out of "ting dem." People working there don't get paid enough to really care so often times, they don't.
You get what you get and if you don't like it, well.......too bad for you, den!:-o

No I am not a masochist. I expected it to improve after I complained (for "months" NOT "months and months") and they kept saying they were out FOR NOW., so I assumed the items were coming back soon.

I think maybe the problem for your frustration exists in the verbs you used: " expected" and "assumed"
