Humongous 🌮! One taco is plenty filled with your choice of meat, cheese and their special salad topping. Gigantic burritos and more items to choose from. Great for families and prices are very reasonable. No reservations but worth the short wait!

Definitely a place to split a meal.Great taste. Excellent view. I was actually in the mood for a burger and the Kobe Burger was phenomenal and fries were excellent... More

On a quick drive through Morro Bay stopped here with the family for a quick dinner. The food was disappointing and the service was cold and not that polite. We shared 2 dishes across 3 folks which was more than enough. I guess this got the waitress annoyed so we were not even asked about deserts and just were handed... More

Finally went to Taco Temple! Cool staff, excellent chips and salsa to start and then the food! Fabulous! Portions are huge, so come hungry, share something, or plan to take food home! We had the fish tacos (twice in one week). Oh my word! The fish was delish! We will be back!

Worth leaving the main waterfront area. Great views still. Had super fresh chips with salsas you can help yourself to. The tacos were enormous and piled, I mean piled, with tons of fresh veggies and a wonderful chipotle sauce. The mango salsa was delicious. So refreshing. Got the scallops and they were seasoned well and perfectly tender. The carnitas were... More

My wife and I stopped here on a Monday on our way home from Cambria. What a find. The food is outstanding. This has immediately become a must-stop for us on Highway 1. I ordered one Alaskan cod fish taco and my wife ordered the chile verde burrito. It was $7 for my one fish taco, but we're not talking... More

My husband and I try and eat as healthy as we can during our travels. Taco Temple has what I consider, very healthy food. I'm Type 1 Diabetic and don't eat carbs. This place is great for the carbo-holic and the low-carb eater. The tacos are huge and served open-faced. The veggies are super fresh and your choice of fish... More

Casual setting but upscale taste with a large selection of fresh fish choices, my Alaska cod burrito was truly delicious. The best Mexican in a looong time. Finally! Absolutely worth the stop for hwy 1 travelers.

This place has the lock down on killing a hungry appetite!!! I'm 6'4" 240-250 Lbs ( depending on what stage of vacation I am currently on ) I ordered 1 carnitas and one grilled cod taco and had to work and eating it all. Yes there is cabbage on the taco but after 4 days of eating fried fish and... More
