Expect to wait for a seat, food is worth the wait. Fresh fish tacos with mound of sliced vegetables on top and spare white dressing/sauce on top. Carnitas, burritos, enchiladas and fresh salsa make this restaurant a favorite with locals.

Our daughter brought us here after Kite Day in Morro Bay. She asked us to go ahead and check-in while she waited with the kids outside. There is always a wait she said and she was right. They have a complimentary taco and salsa counter along the front near where you check-in. There were many people waiting and they did... More

Taco Temple has new owners, so they accept credit cards now. Had lunch there Saturday , and as usual, EXCELLENT!! I think the carrot cake was 1/4 of the cake! We miss going there as often as we use to.

It is in a rather suburban parking lot, but this is a real beloved place locally. Many will rave about the place, just a little north of downtown on Main Street, but this is really just a solid, generous portion-sized place. It IS a good time if you are not looking for quiet evening out. Better authentic and less expensive... More

My family and I always make a bee line for Taco Temple anytime we are near the central coast. We have been here dozens of times since we only live 2 hours away. The chips and salsa bars are my favorite that are self service. The tacos are by far the best thing they serve, you won't be disappointed other... More

A buffet of salsas was the highlight for us! It is not the type of place we would have stumbled upon, but several locals recommended it for its large portions. It was perfect for a post hike and beach day dinner. We enjoyed the outdoor seating. My Ahi tuna salad was one of the best salads I have ever had... More

My family loves this place so we all "worship" at the temple every time we're together. If large portions are your thing, this is your place. I ordered the 2 fish taco plate and had to call the server back to show me where the taco was. Picture 2 tortillas covered in melted cheese (I think this part is done... More

My wife and I were here about 5 years ago and loved it. This we walked in and could see that it has been upscaled with a new paint job and the servers were all wearing the same shirt. We were told that a new owner had taken it over but that the food was the same. It's hard to... More

Ordered the following for take out (on a Friday night at 7:30 there still seemed to be some indoor seating but the place was busy): Carne Asada Platter - for my steak loving daughter. She had no complaints and ate a fair amount. All platters came with salad, black beans, sour cream guacamole and cheese-covered rice. Carnitas Platter - Good... More
