Besides the national media attention and, we assume, inevitable late night monologue punchlines, the fun of this is reading the reaction on Facebook. A couple of highlights:

Katya Babchuk: LOVE YOU!!!!!!!! Coming from a Ukrainian with wonderful family that lives there! God bless you guys!!

The first Mighty Taco opened in Buffalo back in the USSR era (1973). The chain now serves its signature Buffitos and other items at 21 area locations.
