  • I appreciate your business, yet as a Native American, pow-wow as a name for a burger is offensive. I hope to visit & try your burger, yet we use different flour.

  • Mmmmmmmmm.... Frybead I love Frybead ♥ Where I'm from they are called Navajo tacos

  • Lovely, we make a lot of breakfast items in our neck of the woods. I like rolling em long and throw some hot dogs an chili on those mfrs. Starts with great bread tho, quick mini pizzas are taste too. Fast food chains are terrible these days, had tahco bhell the other day, opened it up to add some sauce. The damn burrito looked like a fully loaded baby diaper, bar aint to high these days.

  • Great to see Native American food getting a platform.

  • it be cool to visit that place, I used to live on the Navajo rez and moved to phoenix around 8 years ago so i’m literally “off the rez”

  • dont forget about the burger...... 5:01

  • I like injuns I just wish they didn't have such weird accents I knew it was coming I didn't want to click the video I said these injuns are gonna talk weird and it's gonna cause me stress... I was right. But the food looks delicious.

  • Honestly... there is NOTHING really "Native American".... every nation has a fried bread....

  • Looks so good!!! Thank you.Subbed and scribbed.God bless.

  • Well this was a type of food that was introduced pretty late, as when they where on the rez, because this was the food rations they where given by the government. Back then it was probably less tasty, and fancy looking. I love how you take something so universal (many cultures have them) and simple as fry bread, and make it so tasty, and fresh. I make this maybe twice a year.

  • Just had some Indian tacos Lastnight 😋😋

  • So a Mexican sope?

  • Oh lord, what did I do to be blessed with this video? I never knew there were so many variations. I only thought about traditional Indian tacos, Wojapi sauce, and dipping it in soup soup soup. My mom would use bread for burgers, prairie dogs, and ham sandwiches and that was it. Now I'm going to ask her to experiment more and more. ^^
