Meet Our Fearless Leader
Jim is a third generation restauranteur in Morro Bay. Some of his earliest memories are of washing dishes in his grandfather Tiger’s restaurant where he worked his way up to cook. Upon graduation from Morro Bay High School, Jim moved to Hawaii and worked in several high-end restaurants. He continued to hone his skills working with the freshest of seafood and delicious, high-quality ingredients. Tired of Island life, Jim returned home to Morro Bay and re-joined the family business where he worked for 35 years.
About Taco Temple
Meanwhile Taco Temple opened in a tiny take-out restaurant in Cayucos, later moving to bigger quarters in Morro Bay. In 2015 the former owners, Adam and Dawnelle, approached Jim about purchasing the restaurant because they knew Jim would maintain Taco Temple’s reputation for superb, creative, fresh food with friendly, helpful service. Under new ownership the Taco Temple recipes remain the same!
