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

Let's get this out of the way... I have never spent so much money at a storefront taco stand in my life and it's cash only, so be prepared. After looking through the standard menu we went with the fresh fish specials board... and got and order each of scallop and swordfish tacos. These are not "normal" fish tacos -... More

The best Mexican food I have had on the coast! While the venue may be slightly lacking in some aspects to the snobby elitist types, you are not here for atmosphere. You are here for awesome Mexican food. And it delivers in spades! To start if you get there at the right time (just b4 noon)you are directed to a... More

An excellent veggie burrito, first time there. At $9.99 to go, a bit pricey perhaps but very large, though not heavy, owing to a lack of oiliness or cheese. A nice mixture of black beans, rice and a sort of carrot slaw mixture, with fresh and good guac and sour cream on the side. Two meals for me. I was... More

I love this place. Ever time I visit Cambria I eat here. Prices are high unless u stick with the fish taco on the menu..I always wanted to try the carrot cake everyone raves about, I got a pc to go. Unfortunately it was very poor. It was way under cooked and raw in the middle. So into the trash... More
