Your Host serves Buffalo 27,000 burgers every day, 1965.

By Steve Cichon

Fifty years ago this week, if you were looking for a quick bite to eat in Buffalo, chances are that one of the 31 Your Host restaurants crossed your mind as a possibility.

At a time when eating out might have been more of a gamble, Your Host promised air conditioning, 100 percent beef and real cream for your coffee.

These ads all appeared in The Buffalo Evening News during the week of September 6, 1965.
