We saw a review in an automobile club magazine and wanted to experience this too. Right up-front, we want you to know the Taco Temple is a cash only place. That's not a bad thing, mind you; in fact it could save you from over-ordering. The portions are HUGE (hskayakan, reusachtig, énorme, riesig, malaking-malaki, enorme) in any language. One taco...

When the other reviewers said the portions were big, they weren't joking! Two people can easily share a meal. The food is wonderful. The chips and salsa is really good. I had the fish tacos and they were so good! My husband had the nachos and son had the beef tacos. Everything was very tasty.

Our travel guide recommended the place and we stopped at Morro Bay only because of Taco Temple and it didn't led us down. The portions were huge and the selection of fresh fish was very wide. Definitely worth of stopping!

This is one of two restaurants in Morro Bay we don't miss on our twice a year trips. The other favorite is Dorn's, just incase you are wondering. Delicious, fresh food. Try to go off regular lunch and dinner hours because they get very busy. I love the veggie tostada but my hubby always gets fish tacos. All portions are... More

I can't adequately describe how amazing the food is here. It's simply excellent. I got the salmon tostada, and my husband got the sea bass tacos. What a treat!

Travelling the coast, we got hungry and looked for a place to stop. My wife checked Tripadvisor and found Taco Temple. Great reviews and so we stopped. Looking at the place, we were not impressed. Checking the menu, a taco seemed very expensive, but we were there, so why not. I ordered a Carnita tostada (about 18.00) and my wife... More

Not open Tuesdays. Cash only. Uncomfortable dining room. Always a line. No liquor on the menu. Yet, this place is soooooo good. Excellent chips and guacamole. Excellent everything on the menu. Very interesting artwork. Locals and tourists alike know the drill and we come again and again.

Good value for your money as the portion sizes are huge. The taquitos and tacos are really tasty. Get some chips and salsa too. The chips are hardy and the salsa is authentic. Every item basically has a large salad on it, so be prepared. Also be ready for a long wait as this place is very popular. The restaurant... More

I loved the food at Taco Temple. The portions are massive and I think that actually is an understatement. The food was fresh and delicious. I ordered the Chile Relleno which is one of the best I ever had. The other members of my party dined on burritos and tacos and were all happy with their meals. The service was... More

First of all, if you're a light eater, take a friend and split something. Conventional wisdom dictates that you'd need to eat two tacos to get filled up, but nothing could be farther from the truth. There's so much piled on the taco, it's best to just use a fork...and if you're into burritos, don't be surprised when they bring... More
