The Bizarre History of Buca di Beppo, America’s Most Postmodern Red Sauce Chain
How a Lutheran from central Illinois created a genre-defining Italian-American restaurant.

Welcome to Red Sauce America, our coast-to-coast celebration of old-school Italian-American restaurants.
There was no Little Italy near the small suburb of Dallas where I grew up. Instead, there was Buca di Beppo.
It was here that I first listened to the croonings of Dean Martin, his music playing on an endless loop in the dining room.
