Tim Horton's Locations Now Versus 1995 in Buffalo is Surprising
Back in 1995, Tim Horton's was a lot different. From the menu to the number of locations. While today there are roughly 220 locations in the Western New York area, back in 1995 there were only 10 total. Reddit User u/thebiga1806 posted this picture on the Buffalo Sub Reddit:
This is definitely a flash from the past. Some people said in the Reddit thread they miss the food quality of Tim's back in 1995. Clearly, however, it must still be good as thousands go there daily. They also shared memories of their favorite locations from back in the day.
Where Are Buffalo's Best Donuts?
Tim Horton's generally is not considered to have the best donuts in the area. That's not to say they aren't good, it's just that people in Buffalo love to buy local, and, quite frankly, the local places are better. Paula's Donuts are most often discussed as the best in Buffalo and possibly the world. Donut Kraze is another excellent location. The Market in the Square, Wegmans, and Tops supermarkets even make their donuts fresh daily and people like them a lot.
