Answers on questions

Question

Does Taco Temple offer online ordering?

Answer

Yes, you can order online, but there is a $10 minimum for takeout orders

Question

Are you seating outside??? thinking about coming for lunch tomorrow!

Answer

There are some picnic tables outside available

Question

I can't find their prices on the menu. How are the prices and food quality?

Answer

A taco is from 3-4 dollars, most people get two. A torta is 8 dollars and is a big sandwich, its like the size of two hands. The tacos are very good quality and filled well with quality food. So are the tortas are really good too and more food I'd say. Other than that there are sides like plantains or queso for a few bucks.

Has Taco Temple in Asheville NC ever been featured on Food Network?

Answer

Not that I know of.

This is my favorite restaurant to go to. The tacos are really good and the atmosphere is simple and inviting. It's slightly cramped because it's in a small building, but it's well worth it, and when it's warmer you can eat outside. Great place and you should definitely try it out!

The current COVID world makes it different to operate businesses, this is understandable. Taco Temple's policy of having people stand between cars for pick up is not. This is both dangerous for the pedestrians, but also a huge liability for the company.

This place is a positive experience every single time. Food, atmosphere, indoor/outdoor seating, and polite staff. When my mom comes to visit from across the state, she asks us to take her here:) You've got her hooked.

The lady at the register was grumpy so not the best introduction to the restaurant. I did like the flavors to the tacos. I also really enjoyed the horchata. Yum!

Excellent tacos, and a very tasty margarita. May be the best Al pastor I have ever had. Sat outside due to covid so can't speak for inside but the picnic tables were comfortable.

Enjoyed trying the Panela and Avocado tacos! This was my first time since this building was Two Guys Hoagies. Counter service, self-seating. I enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The fact that they have Ginger's Revenge Lime Agave to pair it with would have made this a 6-star review!

Wow! Tortas were superb, Plantains (and sauce) were divine, service was crisp, friendly, efficient. This may be the best experience we've had in a taco place in AVL. Oh, and the portions: we couldn't finish it, had to take half of it home.

Stopped here during a business trip after a recommendation from a local. Creative, unique, delicious tacos! The baja fish tacos were especially amazing. I would definitely go back here again.

Best tacos in town! Staff is always friendly and accomodating. Restaurant has a nice flow, order once you come in and they bring the food out to you. Drinks are delicious, you must try the horchata! Only downfall is parking but there is a lot next door that you can park in and walk over, it's not far at all. I highly recommend Taco Temple!

Great time! My favorite is the Avocado Taco! When ordering a meal togo they forgot to give it to us so we stood there for 30 minutes waiting and ended up asking them where our food was which was sitting behind the counter. It was a busy night so no worries. We had great service and food! You would be full with 2-3 tacos! The chipotle salsa is soooo good! Great food for great equitable prices!

Great taco shop with excellent selection of tacos, salads, meats, and authentic drinks. I had a salad with the al pastor. My friends got tacos and said the chicken tinga was delicious! We all enjoyed the salsa and the pineapple salsa stole the show! The guacamole was fresh and delicious.

Wow, this place is amazing. Friendly service, helpful staff, and delicious food.Their tacos use handmade tortillas they make right in front of you, and it’s the only al pastor from a spit (how they do it in Mexico City) I’ve come across in America.

Good food but order ahead, and even then you’ll probably have to wait. How on earth does it take so long to prep 2 of your most commonly sold tacos? Definitely need to improve upon their process for drive through in this era.

First tiw visiting bc of a recommendation from WAX.... The place was ok. Just an overall feeling of uncleanliness... the drink machine and ice dispenser appeared to be covered in a black, slimy mildew type mold... tortillas were really tiny and barely contained the ingredients served on them... we had the shrimp tacos and a baja taco. They were good, just not as fresh tasting as I've had at White Duck Taco... just an average experience this time. Mostly the moldy beginning at the drink machine really kinda did it for me...

Get the Chips & Queso! I love the Santa Barbra and avocado tacos best. Yes the price is a little steep, but it’s a worthwhile treat.

Super tasty authentic tacos! We had some issues with the online ordering system and ended up waiting over 30 minutes for our food but still very much worth the wait.

Amazingly good tacos here and they even make fresh tortillas! We have always liked White Duck and Taco Billy but this place could be our new favorite! I wish we lived closer just so we could try more of the menu. It's a cozy spot with beer and a bar to compliment the food.

Employees park on our residential streets taking away our limited parking. Park at Fuddruckers. If we don't have parking should we park in your lot? Rude!

The place was busy, but we were able to find seats and got through the line quickly! The tacos were delicious, and the salsa was INCREDIBLE. 10/10 will be coming here again!I'm not from Asheville, but I always stop here when I'm in town.

This is one of my new favorites. Love the steak (Santa Barbara), shrimp (Loreta), Al pastor and panela cheese tacos. The tacos have a great amount of toppings and everything is so fresh on the tacos. I always get the freshly made corn tortillas it's a happy food moment when I go there. The horchata was also really good.

Okay so if you know me, you know how much I love tacos. Yes, I know everyone says that, but I really love them. And I will judge the heck out of them if they are not authentic. However, Taco Temple is legit. I had the fish, and avocado taco and both were amazing. I was pleasantly surprised by the portion size and loved that they included a small side of chips and salsa for free. Best $8 ever spent!

I had the Mexican sandwich in these photographs. It was so delicious. Sadly it is difficult to pick up and the bread became soggy. I don't mind at all, I always struggle eating burgers and sandwiches. They put plenty of avocado on and the greens were fresh and fantastic."- avacodo -- quesillo cheese, avocado, black beans, rst'd peppers & onions, pico de gallo, mixed greens. (vegan)"

Had the avocado tacos and they were amazing! My only complaint about them would be that the wedges of avocado were a little too big, but thats hardly anything to complain about. The handmade corn tortillas were perfect and that's what I have found to be the hardest part of any taco place. Definitely recommend this stop for any taco lover.

Don't miss the handmade corn tortillas ! My favorite taco is the Panela. Excellent salsa and "Magic" hot sauce. Always check your To Go order for accuracy. Three times over about a year I've driven away and realized the Topo Chico I paid for was not in the bag - either the soda or a cookie.

Friendly, inviting and delicious. What else could you want for a light feeling dinner. I ordered the fish, chicken and steak tacos. Staff was attentive and service was good. The atmosphere is relaxing and you can choose indoor dining, to go or outdoor seating. We will be back again soon.

Taco Temple on Charlotte St., Asheville, NC, is my favorite taco place in town. The Santa Barbara steak tacos and the Tortas are fantastic! I love the location and decor, and the call ahead & online ordering for drive-through pickup is very convenient. The staff is friendly and efficient.

Would not recommend to anyone short on time, called in an order and they said 15 min. When I got there they said it’s not ready yet, ended up taking another 45 min, not particularly fun with a baby in the car. No apology or anything.

Nice small taco joint, you can tell this place is good because the line is usually out the door on the weekend. You can expect to spend around 10min. to wait in line, and possibly double to get your food. The meals were delicious, they have a variety of options including tacos, tortas, chips and dips, plus a large selection of apps. There is also a great variety of local beers and Mexican beers.

Great place! They do have seating indoors and out. Took a order to go..Ordered chicken and a side of guacamole . Taco was great..meat was awesome. Corn shell is hand made and a little thick for my taste... but still delish. I also had flour taco shell which was good. Guacamole was different. Nice staff...will definitely return. I had the chicken taco and the pico was fresh and tasty. I forgot to ask for salsa but it really didn't need it.
