“One of the best seafood restaurants in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

It can be a bit loud and the wait can be long on the weekend but the food is great. Don't let the name fool you, this is not a Mexican restaurant. Good seafood tacos or platters with lots of fresh greens and mango salsa. We live in Morro Bay and do what many locals do to avoid the crowd - call and order take-out. If you are visiting Morro Bay, put Taco Temple on your "must eat" list.

“Good food in an unpretentious place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

The food is good and plentiful. The service is pretty good but it was extremely busy when we were there so everyone was taxed. I guess everyone goes because it is good and relatively inexpensive.

“California Casual Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

As a local we come here with friends alot. Its casual inside with a nice self serve chip/salsa bar. I enjoy the regular fish taco, which is more like a salad, great! The salmon taco is not cheap but you get a nice size piece of salmon which is cooked perfect and worth it. The portions are very large so be careful how much you order. Thisnis great spot to enjoy good cuisine in a california casual atmosphere with locals.

“Fusion Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We have dined on several occasions and the last month we simply called in an order to take home. Although this restaurant usually has a line out front the take out service is great. All of the entrees are a blend of creative fusion, Asia and wonderful mexican flair. We love the seafood tacos and we LOVE The deserts. From Chocolate bread pudding to the yummie carrot cake you cannot go wrong. Please note you can share one piece of cake or the pudding with 3-4 people. We have giggled our way through one piece shared by my husband and myself only to be sorry since it was so fantastic.

“worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Absolutely the best most unique seafood tacos and tostados anywhere. Also killer desserts! A must try if you are in the area of the Central Coast.
