As we put our 1st week behind us and start cooking for our 2nd week all of us at Zach and Lou’s Barbeque would like to thank all of our customers this past week for your OVERWHELMING support.
Your response to us opening back up was phenomenal. I tried to speak with as many of you as I could, to thank you in person. One thing that was said to me repeatedly was “we are so happy that you are back”. People were either genuinely excited to see us back or are sick of eating what they have been eating and wanted something different. 😂
To be honest when I looked out from my prep area and saw the line of people it was hard to not get emotional. All of your awesome comments about our outside eating area, to our music selection (gotta love the Allman Brothers and Govt Mule), to how they loved the food, to the laughs over our social distancing signs, all made special memories for me. While those things were the best nothing beats reconnecting with our friends that we have made since we opened back up. We so missed talking with all of you and sharing a laugh. Yes, our 1st week could not have gone any better, OK maybe we could have gone without the walk-in cooler breaking down. 😥
An incredibly special thanks to my best bud Angelo Alduini for his assist to keep us up and running. I would be remiss if I did thank Almo Zani for his hard work in helping us get to be Covid safe and for making the music happen.
On a side note our new process, for the time being, is clearly not as efficient as our original process but you all hung in there waiting. Another factor that caused the wait was the quantity of meals being bought. Some people bought 8-10 meals at one time so that took a little time to set up. All of this is going to change as we migrate back to our original process soon.
I know that I joke constantly but from the depths of my heart thank you, thank you, thank you for giving Zach and Lou’s the week that you did. As I always say if it were not for you helping us make our dream come true, we would not be here.
See you soon and stay safe.
The Zach and Lou’s team,
Gina, Zach, Spence, Ed, Greg and of course me, Lou
