Taco Temple had humble beginnings as a small take-out shop in Cayucos, CA in 1997. It didn’t take long for central coast locals and vacationers alike to learn that Taco Temple had some of the best local cuisine. With a line often out the door and around the corner the owners thought it was time to move to a larger location and offer a full dining experience! In 2015, after enjoying many years of building the Taco Temple brand and reputation Taco Temple is sold from the previous owners and Jim Leage takes the helm to maintain Taco Temple’s reputation for superb, creative, fresh food with friendly, helpful service. In 2018 after searching for a secondary location fate aligned and the Temple team purchased the old Margies Diner location in San Luis Obispo. In May of 2019 Taco Temple proudly open its second location at 1575 Calle Joaquin, SLO. The building was originally a Howard Johnson’s Restaurant. Then, it became, as most “locals” know it, Margie’s Diner. The Temple team is proud to expand its reputation for fantastic locally sourced seafood and produce and friendly service from our awesome staff. Come in and enjoy our delicious fresh food along with our newly updated, funky, California beach style! We look forward to seeing you!
