Very good, a little overpriced.

Fun, trendy place. Very good, non-traditional fish tacos. Great chip salsa bar. We thought it was a little overpriced. Get there early, there were people waiting to be seated a 5:30 on a Tuedsday.

A little local taco stand with an exceptionally tasty menu of local and traditional taco type cuisine, the size of every dish is humongous, at very reasonable prices, the locally caught fish tacos, burritos and enchiladas are unbelievably good, enjoy these with a picture of their own great tasting sangria. You may have to wait for a few minutes to... More

I'm a local, but hadn't eaten at Taco Temple in probably 10 years, mainly due to the higher prices & long waits. Nevertheless, we decided to get out of our rut with our regular go-to restaurants & have dinner there. On a Friday night at 7:15, we got lucky & were seated right when we walked in. There were at...

As with most all US restaurants I find reviews are based on quantity of food served - the higher the heap the higher the star count. Now that that I have that out of my system .. It is a well run facility, reasonably clean, service was great - there was a bit of a wait to get in but... More

Best tacos I have ever had in my life. And very affordable! A must-do if you're in the Morro Bay area.

I have driven by this place many times and wanted to try it. I love Mexican food of all types and especially tacos. So the place looks kind of cool with a wait - OK still excited. Pretty good chips and salsa while waiting for my order - still all good. I bit of a wait for the drinks -... More

Be prepared to wait- had to wait less than half an hour at 2:30 on a weekday - well worth it! Do yourself a favor, and share your meal with a friend, or just know you'll have leftovers. Most dishes are piled with a mix of beautiful fresh vegies. I must if you are anywhere nearby!

Fish tacos were fresh, tasty and nicely seasoned. We liked the chips and salsa too but the prices were high. Atmosphere eclectic- like an old surf shop.

There was quite a line when my son and I arrived at Taco Temple, but we stayed based on a recommendation of a local and the good reviews we read on Yelp. We were very happy we waited through 10 or more other names before we were called to our table. I had the soup of the day, which was... More

Recommended by a local. The portions were huge. The scallops were good but the carnitas were disappointing. Boxed up the remainder of the carnitas and ended up throwing it away. Place was crowded but server was friendly.
