When Hornick and his partner, “Chef Jo” Kaucher, opened the restaurant in 1983, critics, loan officers and family members alike scoffed at the idea, some vehemently. “It’s like we were going against apple pie and mom and the whole thing,” Hornick recalled. “Big shot advertising guys came in and said you’re ******* against the wind.” Their answer was to create an atmosphere as American as mini malls by decorating the place with vintage ads and neon lights and serving up heaping helpings of comfort food, but without the meat.
