I have been there only once, they sell spicy tacos, makes me want to drink, cant get a refill? Have never took my family back there or coworkers and have always shut down people every wanting to go to a place that is too greedy to offer refills.

Better than Taco Bell. There are lots of menu options, even for vegetarians and vegans! I get the Meatless Super Mighty with refried beans and add rice. Option of white or wheat tortilla is nice too.

The meat has become greasy and watery if that makes any sense. Some hard chunks were noted last time I ordered there as well so I tossed the taco's out having lost my appetite. It really turned me off to buying their food. Now I go across the street to get a taco because at least the other place is... More

I have always gone to Taco Bell because it was the only fast food pseudo Mexican place in the area. However I recently moved to Lockport and I have my choice between the two. I finally decided to try MIGHTY TACO and I was pleasantly surprised. I had two items, one was a burrito and the other was a fajita.... More

I don't know who thought tacos and burritos taste like this. But, they were wrong! Someone from Mighty Taco should visit the American Southwest.

I've been to this location over the past few years. This was the worst visit. The employees, while standing in front of the counter ignored my wife. NO REFILLS? WHAT?!

You cannot stay in Lockport without a visit to Mighty Taco. The regular mighty taco on a hard shell is the epitome of a taco! It does not get better than that! Delish! Also recommend the Buffito - buffalo chicken burrito.
