Edit request on 3 June 2013[edit]

Change the "Indian tacos" section to "Native American Tacos" due to the fact it confuses the actual Indians 206.110.66.23 (talk) 21:56, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Not done: The source calls them Indian Tacos, which as the title of a specific dish should be kept as is. It also calls them "Navajo Tacos" and talks about how they're found in the American West and Midwest, so I don't think it's all that confusing, either. Point to a reliable source that calls them Native American Tacos and it'll at least be considered, but otherwise, no. --ElHef (Meep?) 22:43, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
Concur. Lots of dishes are called by names that, if you dissect them, aren't perfectly logical. In the Midwest and parts of the West, they are widely known as Indian tacos. I'm sure someone has called them Native American tacos, but I doubt there's a reliable source that documents significant use of that name. Rivertorch (talk) 05:12, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

"Finer restaurant slander"[edit]

The section on 'Crispy Tacos' states that ground beef is not used "in finer restaurants". At a guess I'd say it's either subtle vandalism, biased point of view or a poor attempt to attack restaurants that do use ground beef. I'd recommend removal of the bracketed content. — Preceding unsignedcomment added by 89.241.114.197 (talk) 20:49, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

I don't know that the phrase is a "slander," but I've removed it as I agree that it doesn't contribute to the article. Geoff Who, me? 23:38, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Cheers for that. I know slander isn't accurate but I'm not an account holder and have noticed that unless I stick a buzz word in the title any suggested changes to protected pages often get overlooked for far longer than necessary. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.23.65.132 (talk) 21:09, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Hidden comment from the Indian tacos section[edit]

I've moved the following hidden comment from the Indian tacos section of the article to this talk page. Northamerica1000(talk) 07:05, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Tacos de Guisado[edit]

Would it be appropriate to make an addition for tacos de guisado, or would guisado be considered it's own dish? Reference: http://articles.latimes.com/2012/aug/11/food/la-fo-0811-guisados-20120811 Esquiva (talk) 20:37, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Seems to me they would be another variation (by filling) that could be added to the list. Want to take a stab at adding tacos de guisado to the list of types? Or I can do it... Geoff Who, me? 22:43, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
Except that "guisado" is not a particular dish or kind of filling, it is many different kinds of filling. It basically just refers to what ever dish is being cooked at a given day. So if I say I sell "tacos de guisado" then today that may be tacos with albondigas, tomorrow it may be tacos with chicharron prensado.User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 22:46, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Link Tacos Dorados to Taquitos[edit]

There is a whole page for Taquitos which are mentioned in the description of Tacos Dorados. I think Tacos Dorados should be linked directly to the Taquito page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taquito). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.5.194.210 (talk) 05:26, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
