Out of the Past

The last night at Pat’s


Pat’s Hot Dogs, at Sheridan Drive and Parker Boulevard, was a local institution and a crucial part of Tonawanda’s hot rod culture. These photos were taken on its closing day in September 1983. Note the signage in the center that advertises 50 cent hot dogs as part of the farewell deals.
