Willie Bird Restaurant (Santa Rosa)... Wtf?

I thought I remember reading some positive reviews of this place, and I believe or local Food Network embarrassment also featured it on Diners, Drive Ins & Dives... we just got back from lunch and this place is seriously not Chow recommending worthy. We split:

> Willie Bird's Special

Try tasteless turkey breast
Mashed potates from a box
Cranberry sauce from a can
Unremarkable gravy & stuffing

> Italian Sausage Sandwich

Bland yet annoying (bitter from dried Sage) homemade sausage patty
Institutional bread
Frozen fat fries very poorly fried
Heinz ketchup & mustard

Now I know I haven't had the fried chicken which is suppossed to be very good... but so far this is definitely not a place I would recommend over the chain diners... on a deliciousness & execution scale its several notches below Chubby's Diner.
