I love the rice, bean and cheese burrito. They are not skimpy on ingredients. Big. I cannot eat it all so I save for later or next day... Just one of those wonderful hole in the wall places to eat...

This is a great local Mexican takeaway cum cafe. It is clearly very popular amongst the locals which is always a good sign. It attracted all types whilst we were there from surfer dudes through to local families - and even a Mexican family. The food was very tasty and the lady behind the counter (the owner?) was very helpful... More

This isn't Taco Bell, California Mexican or Tex-Mex. This is as close to the real deal as you'll find here. Alas, they no longer do menudo, but pulled pork and beef and tongue tacos are good. Mole is prepared on site!

This place is and old Kentucky Fried Chicken fast food joint and is not much to look at. As you walk up to the door, a couple things will catch your eye. First is the surfer stickers stuck all over the windows. Second is the ordering line, as this is a very popular place. The line moves quickly and as... More

We went to this restaurant because It was a short walk from our hotel. The food was just okay. Taco Temple is much, much better.

It's a tiny place and seating is extremely limited. Food was inexpensive but we got what we paid for.. Ordered three different items and all... More

We found this place when we saw someone eating a huge burrito while walking in town and asked them where they got it. The food is fresh, tasty and reasonably priced especially when we always take home half of what we order. It is always full of local people and small but you usually can get a table.

From the outside you might be tempted not to stop but we could tell from the number of people waiting to eat there had to be something more. We were right! The food was delicious and affordable.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a couple of locals in SLO when we asked where to find the best Mexican food. The restaurant is simple, small, and can fill up quickly; however it is most certainly worth a stop for a quick bite. I had the carbon and carnitas tacos, and both were absolutely delcious. They have many... More

I have a higher salt tolerance than my S.O. and I got to eat her food after I finished mine. For a $6 burrito I will go elsewhere or spend $2 more at Taco Temple and have the best carnitas burrito ever.
