I think you were in the wrong. There are italians that go out to eat and italian restaurants even though the sauce's and recipes are not the same, they will still eat there. Same with other types of cuisine. Just because a place doesn't make it your way, doesn't mean it is bad.
How are you going to find out if a place has good food if you pass judgement on it before you even put fork to mouth? Not to mention you are out with your family to have a meal. Focus on enjoying time spent with family as opposed to the guy not knowing what part of the brisket he is putting into a sammich.
