Our Restaurant

Torti Taco Bar & Grill is open for dine-in and take-out customers. Our salsa bar features homemade salsas that can be used for any of the items on the menu — with choices such as chipotle salsa, avocado salsa, mango salsa, pineapple salsa and the spicy hot “Torti Sauce.”
The authentic flavors from the salsa bar will keep you coming back for more.
We welcome comments and suggestions in order to make your experience a more enjoyable one.

How We Got Started

Our journey began with a passion for bringing the authentic flavors of Mexico to downtown Battle Creek. It all started when our founder, Maria Torti, envisioned creating a gathering place where friends, family, and neighbors could come together to enjoy delicious food, handcrafted cocktails, and live entertainment in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
