Untitled[edit]

I grew up in Buffalo, and live in Richmond, VA now. Good lord do I miss my Mighty.

Blatant Advertisement[edit]

I quote from a Facebook post by the company:

Our Wikipedia page could use some more slogans as created by our fans....and also this link under "External Links." http://www.facebook.com/pages/Buffalo-NY/Mighty-Taco/11463302534 Not implying anything... ;) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.171.34.28 (talk) 03:39, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

References[edit]

Mighty Run[edit]

Would it be relevent to add this? or is it just an East Aurora term? A Mighty Run is essentially when a group of people on the spur of the moment decide to drive half an hour away to the nearest Mighty Taco, regardless of the weather or time of day. -I do not believe so. There is nothing to distinguish a Mighty Run from a Taco Bell Run other than the restaurant of choice. However, I do recall something about a Buffalo tradition to eat at every Mighty Taco in existence in one day. If that could be documented, it would be good.


-Liquidmetalspiderman

-Boush's opinion!- "Mighty Run" is commonly used by everyone in the greater Buffalo area. Nobody says "Taco Bell run." Ever.

"Mighty Run" is also commonly used in Niagara County. This expression is rarely used for other restaurants in the area. Doing a search for "Mighty Run" I found instances of this use on Youtube, the Urban Dictionary, and several message boards where it is frequently written in quotes. Also as the name of the restaurant is Mighty Taco, not Mighty, a better comparison would be a "Bell run", not "Taco Bell run". I admit there is a small possibility of someone getting a group to go on a "Bell run", but it would require explaining.--Jojuko (talk) 08:45, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

On removal of the locations section.[edit]

I'm planning to wipe out the locations section in a moment. This is not intended as a slam on the chain. My thinking:

  • The locations list looks like a copy/paste from MightyTaco.com without due attention to wikification or copyright. There's already a link to the official site.
  • It's a conflict of interest for Mighty Taco employees to modify the Wikipedia entry, yet nobody else would be sufficiently motivated to keep it current.
  • Phone numbers are not usually notable. Pizza Pizza#Marketing techniques is a notable exception.
  • Phone numbers are presented in a way that's only useful to people who know Buffalo's area code, which is mighty presumptuous for an encyclopedia that's supposed to be serving the entire English-speaking world.

Fair use rationale for Image:Mightytaco.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Mightytaco.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Former Locations[edit]

Perhaps its beyond the scope of Wikipedia, but anyone have a list of former locations? There was one at the corner of Elmwood and Forest, back around 1982. Same spot where Plate Ohs was more recently. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.243.147.149 (talk) 16:09, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

cleaning up promotional tone[edit]

This page reads like an advertisement and has no sources other than the company's website. I found this search: [1] which establishes that this chain is pretty solidly notable--but we need to source it in third-party sources, not rely on the company's website.

I know September's Esquire named it one of the best fast food chains by chef survey in the United States. Although the article is a bit of a mess, I'm a little shocked to see it has been proposed for deletion. http://www.esquire.com/the-side/feature/top-fast-food-restaurants-0909?click=main_sr --Jojuko (talk) 08:59, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
