Taco Temple in San Luis Obispo set to open next week

Taco Temple will officially open its new location to the public in San Luis Obispo next week. Staff says private trainings will be held for employees over the next few days starting Wednesday before opening day.

“We are excited to finally open to the public next week,” said Deborah Franklin, co-owner of Taco Temple. “We can’t wait to show off our new space to our many fans in San Luis Obispo and the surrounding county.”

In October of last year, KSBY reported the popular restaurant in Morro Bay was expanding to a second location with the purchase of a building on Calle Joaquin just off Highway 101.

That building was the longtime, former home of Margie’s Diner.

Since the purchase, owners say the building has undergone extensive renovations inside and out.

The first Taco Temple opened in Cayucos in 1998 before moving to its current spot in Morro Bay in the early 2000s.

The co-owners are Jack and Deborah Franklin, Gretchen Ross and Michael Foster, and Jimmy Leage. The group says they’ve been looking to expand for three years before selecting the Calle Joaquin location.
