We stopped here on our way from Cambria to Santa Barbara - what a great restaurant!! From the shrimp tacos to carnitas tostada to the beef burrito, everything is very fresh and very delicious.

This is a hidden gem. The food is wonderful, fresh ingredients. Some items a little pricey but well worth it! Carnitas platter is incredible.

Came here after seeing the great reviews on Trip Advisor - we certainly weren't disappointed. We ordered tostadas and they were great. There was so much chicken on mine I couldn't finish it! My boyf had cod and said it tasted delicious. The salad that came with them was lovely and fresh. Free tortilla chip bar was an added bonus.... More

We tried to go to Taco Temple our first day in the area, but saw the huge line and went to Chapala's instead (a nice, authentic alternative). We tried again the next day, arriving as it opened, and were very pleased with the entire experience. The service is extremely friendly. They have self-serve homemade chips and salsa that you can...

This fun, quirky California fusion restaurant is one the of the most awesome spots on the coast. Innovative menu items and thoroughly unique decor will win you over before your plate touches the table. The staff is energetic and welcoming and the salsa good enough to eat with a fork. I had a burrito the size of my head but... More

Pros: The food! The chicken tacos were unique, quite filling and were very flavorful and the nachos were huge and yummy. Oh, and don't forget the tortilla chips ~ thin and crispy to perfection. Cons: Even on a Wednesday night, they ran out of enchiladas and carne asada. (How does a restaurant do that?) It's cash only. There was a... More

We went there after meeting some nice local ladies who recommended it. Nice beer/cider selection and a good salsa bar were noted and appreciated. Portions were large and well flavored - we all ordered the fish tacos and they definitely filled us without feeling too guilty. The food tasted fresh and was presented with lots of greens for a healthy... More

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!
