Amherst's seventh Mighty Taco coming to former Burger King

If a six-pack of Mighty Taco restaurants wasn't enough for Amherst diners, don't worry: A seventh is on the menu.

The chain behind the Super Mighty burrito and the Nacho Buffito plans to open its 22nd location in a former Burger King restaurant at 5117 Sheridan Drive, at Mill Street, the project architect told The Buffalo News.

The chain has a restaurant less than a mile to the east, at 5495 Sheridan Drive near International Drive, but Douglas Hutter of Zaxis Architectural said Mighty Taco hasn't announced it will close that or any other Amherst restaurant.

Mighty Taco plans to make changes to the building owned by Iskalo Development, including removing a glass-enclosed sunroom, replacing the roof and installing a new façade, Hutter said.

Zaxis has applied on Mighty Taco's behalf for two variances from the Amherst Zoning Board of Appeals for a drive-thru loudspeaker. If the project receives the required approvals the restaurant could open this fall, Hutter said.
