This place is fun and super cheap. Bring your appetite, the portions are huge. I love the fish tacos, but others in our group raved about the huge burritos. Good chips and salsa, good service. Be prepared to wait, this is a very popular place.

We went here late at night, right before they closed at 9pm. On the way to our Cayucos destination, we saw this place from highway 1 and the line was out the door so we thought, hey, we should check it out. The food did not disappoint as the sea bass taco was really really good! It was good size,... More

Been here a few times. Fish tacos very good, but this time a little too spicey for me. Huge portions.they were out of crab cakes & carrot cake, which is the two things I wanted to try. Went back next day for take out carrot cake. Huge, but not great!

A little loud but the food is worth it! Just try it. You can even eat outside in good weather. They have a delicious mango salsa, too.

While visiting my relatives in San Luis Obispo, someone suggested a taco run. When I saw the menu I knew this was no ordinary taco place. I ordered the crab cake taco and was not disappointed. Good flavor. Great presentation (even with our to-go order!) and more than enough food. I liked the shoe-string potatoes (and so did my kids).... More

We have going to Taco Temple for years. They serve the best fresh fish taco in the area. it's an open faced affair with tortilla and cheese on the bottom, salad in the middle and fish on top. Comes with fresh mango salsa. This is what we always order. They pour a generous glass of local wine, have a good... More

Delicious... I love the scallop tacos... but any of the fresh fish tacos are outstanding. Be careful though the portions are huge and the desserts are homemade and worth saving room for!! Our fav low key place to eat on the central coast!

You will not leave hungry! The taco's & burrito's are excellent. The chips are great & the salsa bar tasty. Staff very friendly. It gets really busy so maybe go earlier or a little past lunch time. Not sure if it will make a difference! Did not have the carrot cake, but it looked delicious!
