Lightening Foods - yuck!

I rarely get out for lunch but I happened to be out and about yesterday and stopped in at Lightening Foods. I hadn't eaten there in years but remembered it fondly as having really good, interesting sandwich combinations.

I got the Don Juan Spicy Chicken Sandwich. It was not good - bread was dry and funky, the fillings were unbalanced and the chicken was not spicy. A side salad came with the sandwich was terrible - lettuce, mushrooms & shredded carrots with some seriously NASTY fake Italian dressing thrown on top, it was completely inedible.

Maybe I mis-ordered and there are some tasty things on the menu, but I won't be in any hurry to go back and look.

FYI - I really hate it when places just pour the dressing on top of a few leaves instead of properly tossing and incorporating the dressing. They can do it in big bowls very easily but if they don't, then that means the customer has to either eat completely dry or completely soaked lettuce OR they have to try to toss the salad themselves in the tiny plate/container the salad is served. What a pain in the ass! Are these establishements lazy, stupid or not at all interested in providing the slightest bit of quality?
