Fans of Torti Taco are excited about the recent announcement on their social media page that they plan to expand their business by opening up a Bar & Grill in downtown Battle Creek. I reached out to management and they confirmed that this was an expansion, and NOT a move. They plan on having two locations, and as they prepare to open their new bar & grill, they're encouraging people to visit them at their current location at 5275 Beckley Rd, in Battle Creek.

The New Location

Torti Taco Bar & Grill will open at a yet to be determined date at 80 W. Michigan Ave in Downtown Battle Creek and will feature a menu from Morelos Mexico, an oyster bar, cocktails, beer, occasional live music, and a sit down family and friendly environment. They currently hiring for the new location and will continue to run catering as well.
