Tonight's visit was the second time I have been to Johann Tortas. The torta with mexican sausage was great. My son had a pineapple/ham torta which he said he would order again. The tortas here are the best I have ever had. The business has different hours than a normal restaurant but I still highly recommend going in for a... More

Went there for lunch and there was only one waiter working at the time. Luckily we had time to wait, because the food was worth the wait. I had the chorizo torta (until that day, I have never heard of a torta) it was so good. The chorizo was not overly spicy like I've had in Mexico and the bread... More

Probably the best Tortas I've had anywhere. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

One word. Tamales. 👌👍 I also love the Hawaiian torts but always order the loaded potatoes 😍 & the staff treats you like family! I crave this place weekly!

The food was absolutely horrible. We all ordered something different and none of it was edible. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Nasty food and the service was not so hot. Never imagined restaurant food could be this nasty.

So much food and so authentic. I can't believe how wonderful this little place is. An easy parking, quick in and out restaurant that puts excellent food on your plate. I really enjoy their tamales and the very good corn tortilla tacos (just like I had when I was in Mexico). You can't beat the great service and the owner... More

We lived in central Mexico and were delighted to find this restaurant! The Mexican Grill, as it is now named, is operated by a local family who are passionate about great tasting, homemade Mexican food. My fav are the tamales, tender, moist masa & lean tasty pork cooked with green chilies. The tacos are just as we ate in Mexico:... More

We had no trouble finding the restaurant, it is in a small strip mall on Lafountain st. Across from kokomo motors. The food was excellent and my husband said some of the best tamales he had eaten. One thing I didn't like is no chips and salsa, only if u order them off the menu. Another thing I ordered Flan... More

Some friends and I decided to meet in Kokomo for lunch and a quick look at TA got us to this place. First of all, it is very difficult to find. Small place in a non-descript strip mall with only a truck as a billboard parked out front. After finding the place I ordered the Tamale lunch special. The Tamales... More
