Publican Quality Meats

My wife & I went yesterday, pretty disappointing.
The Barbacoa lunch special was "gristley", seemed very poor quality. The bread was dry, crumbly & tasteless. The sandwich was average at best.
We also had the Chicken Parmesan sandwich, same response. The meat was dry, very little flavor to the sandwich, completely forgettable.
We had the side of potato salad, which was so salty, we couldn't eat more than one bite.
The side of Kale tasted awful, like dirty paper with some lemon on it.

We were really surprised because we really like the Publican. This seemed not even close to the quality we expected.
We both agreed it did not merit a return, too bad....
Has anyone else had this experience?
