There is a salsa and freshly-made chips bar that has the best green hot salsa I've ever had. A fish taco here is a feast. You probably can't eat more than one or two. The carnitas is an unbelievable great. The last time we ate...More

We asked a Morro Bay local where to find the best Mexican food in the area and she didn't hesitate to recommend Taco Temple. It's on Main Street, just off Hwy 1. Pretty simple decor, with surfboard art on the ceiling. You are seated when...More

Ate here yesterday after an absence of 3 years, due to a decline in food quality, service and an uptick in prices. However, we tried it again and all seems to have been righted. Don't know if there is new management, but the food is...More

The food has changed with the new ownership. This is not the place to go. Nothing special any longer just average. My burrito was bland. My wife's calamari taco had poorly cooked fish. Food looked good but didn't taste good. The salsa bar needs more...More
