Memphis Minnie's - Disappointment

I'm a recent transplant to SF from the Midwest, and tried MM for the first time. Sadly, I was very disappointed. My friend and I had the combo plate and we ordered the pork ribs, shoulder and turkey, plus a half-pound of rib tips. Everything was bland, dry and rubbery. The sides: sweet potato, cole slaw, and the collard greens, aside from the texture differences (which was a function of different ingredients), they all tasted the same, which would have been alright if they were good, but they weren't. They all tasted like any kind of over-cooked, generic vegetable with too much vinegar. Did I miss something, or was I expecting too much? I really thought it would be good based on the reviews I've read here. Do'H!
