It's a date! A tentative date, to be sure, but a date nonetheless!

Yep, that's them. Howard Johnson's used to serve that style of bun with their hot dogs... back when we had a few HoJo's around here. Come to think of it, they served Boston baked beans, too... I wonder if HoJo's originated in NE

You got me curious, so I checked. Yep, the first one was in Quincy, Massachusetts. Howard Johnson's - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You beat me to it. I knew they started in Mass. Mom would take me to HoJo when I was a kid. They had wonderful sundaes and ice cream sodas for dessert. I remember reading the history on the back of a menu. All I can remember now is Mass. LOL

Wonder why they haven't made their way west? I've never seen them here either, but I think the idea is far better than the normal HD bun!

Quincy is where my great-grandfather is from...and where his mysterious past was left before he came to Canada! Wow, my education is coming full circle today!

He may have even invented the New England bun!

My research shows he left home at 15 and we believe never went back. He wanted to own an orange orchard in Florida but I have not been able to find out what really happened in the three years before he arrived in Ottawa and joined the North West Mounted Police! But his brother, who my Dad and Grandfather never even knew existed, could have invented it!
