Starting off with the warm chips and delicious salsas (serve yourself and never ending) we really enjoyed our visit. One reviewer said to go at an odd time and that paid off for us. Early dinner at 4:30 was nearly empty and they were waiting...More

Always delicious. Always filling. Always worth the wait (there often is). California Fusion at it's best. We like to share.

Begin with one taco at a time, they are large and filling. Our favorite was the Carne Asada. Try going at odd hours like 1:30 or later before dinner and you won't have to wait. Love the self serve tostada bar and homemade salsas.

The wait is well worth it. This is where the locals go. The portions are huge and a very large selection on the menu. Chips and salsa are self serve. The service was quick and efficient.

Love Taco Temple. You know a place is good when you see lots of locals plus tourists waiting outside. The food is different but still delicious. Don't go there expecting your run of the mill Mexican food. You won't get it if that's what you...More
