The best tacos in San Luis Obispo County

September 27, 2017 | The Tribune

You might think the kitchen got your order wrong when you see the Baja taco plate for the first time. A large portion of grilled or fried cod rests on what looks like a full salad. But after a few bites with a fork, you’ll find the tortillas with melted cheese at the bottom. Assemble your tacos the way you like using the mango salsa and house sauce served on the side. The price ($14.95) might scare away some, but the leftovers easily serve as a second meal.

Gotta love all the flavor and color! But since moving to the central coast I admit it is tough to find a good hole in the wall mexican food restaurant. That was until I went to Taco Temple. If you have driven along the coast on the 1 you may have been to this little gem, if not this should not be on your bucket list. They are the mecca of tacos. Not just any tacos but extremely large and flavorful tacos. So when Billy and I pulled away from life for a little afternoon date at the beach guess where we ended up? Read more here
