‘Mighty’ celebration: Local chain plans birthday festivities

On Aug. 31, it will have been exactly 40 years since the first Mighty Taco fast food restaurant opened at 1247 Hertel Ave., the site of the current Daddio’s Pizza.
Much has changed in those four decades—including the close of the original location—but thousands of Mighty Packs, the national renown of the Buffito and the moves of an aggressive local chain have created more than just permanence.
Mighty Taco is embedded in Buffalo’s identity—a symbol that causes hunger pangs for ex-pats and sparks late-night cravings for Western New Yorkers.
To celebrate this monumental birthday, Mighty Taco will offer a 40-percent discount on all orders between 10 a.m. to midnight on Saturday, the brand announced on its Facebook page.
Here’s the fine print:
Not valid with any other discount. Discount does not apply to the purchase of Gift Cards, Gift Certificates, Gear (our logo’s apparel) or Chow (our frozen Burritos). Bring your party hat, your memories, and perhaps some patience depending on the reach of this announcement.
If you’re curious about the numbers, here are a few meals you should consider for Saturday (final prices include sales tax, options generally for a heavier eater, but hey, we live in Buffalo. Many of us are heavy eaters.):
**Two Super Mighty Burritos and a Nachos Deluxe
Usual price: $6.91
Birthday price: $4.15
**A Mighty Pack and a cherry empanada
Usual price: $7.57
Birthday price: $4.54
**A large steak fajita and a Mighty taco
