Rating: 4.8 (19 reviews)
Address: 628 S Main Street
Opening days/hours: Open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Closed Sunday and Monday.

Highest review:Wow! In one sentence, you can taste and feel the love that goes into this food. This is a truly extraordinary and perfectly executed food experience. There are easily over 30 restaurants here in the North County, but this just shot straight up to #1. The Marinated Beef Quesabirrias are spectacular. The green and red salsas are like nothing I have ever tasted. The chicken taquitos come with this savory flavorful sauce to go over the top that was just killer. The portions are perfect and leave you feeling fulfilled, without making you feel like you gorged yourself. The prices are reasonable and their outside dinning area is inviting. Can’t wait for visit #2!” – Ryan K.

The food is priced just right. The burritos are very flavorful and juicy. This hidden Gem is a must try in Templeton. Location has plenty of parking and indoor and outdoor shaded picnic tables.

Highest review:Just wow! Excellent fish and chips and fish tacos. Our group was pleasantly surprised. On vineyard rd just off 101 frwy, you will find excellent fish for lunch or early dinner. All of us walked away with our bellies full and very happy. My wife couldn’t stop talking about her meal the next day. To quote her, ” I’d come from LA just for the fish and chips!” Their clam chowder was also delicious. As we looked around at others, they were all enjoying their dishes as well. No wonder this place is highly recommended. It’s set up with outside tables and bring your food to your table quickly after ordering. Yes, they even sell wine here as well. It’s a comfortable and casual atmosphere. Everyone here is friendly.” – David D.

Rating: 4.4 (713 reviews)
Address: 105 S Main Street
Opening days/hours: Daily from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Highest review:This was my first trip to the Kitchenette in Templeton, CA and we were pleasantly pleased! It was a Thursday morning so it wasn’t busy at all. It was charming, clean, welcoming with friendly and helpful staff. We could see them squeezing oranges, cutting fresh veggies and grinding coffee. We were instructed to grab a menu, pick a table and order at the counter when ready. I ordered the breakfast burrito w/bacon and the hubby ordered the breakfast tacos from the “lighter” menu. The burrito was standard size, panini pressed and flavorful. Loved the homemade salsa! The tacos (x3) we’re delicious and messy but oh so worth it. You’ll definitely need extra napkins! We will most definitely be back. Enjoy!” – Kitty L.

McPhee’s Grill

Rating: 4.4 (796 reviews)
Address: 416 S Main Street
Opening days/hours: Wednesday through Sunday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Closed Monday and Tuesday.

Highest review:This was an extremely pleasurable meal. It’s very cozy and comforting with the tin ceiling, cute bar, and little table lamps. We had artichokes appetizer, with Caprese salad and double pork chops. The salad had wonderful textures and flavors- spicy arugula, crunchy apple and candied walnut with the fried prosciutto. The pork chops were served with crunchy sweet potato fries and crisp green beans. Beautifully plated! The highlight was the pork chops that were so juicy and tender; served with a sweet and spicy sauce.” – Lynn H.

Highest review:If you are looking for a family friendly, down home breakfast diner then this is your place! Joe’s is a North County staple and a must visit if you are passing through Templeton. It is always busy with us locals but tables open fast. Excellent food and staff to make you feel warm and full (literally!). You can’t order wrong here but my recommendation is the Dillinger breakfast burrito.” – Freeman M.

J&R Natural Meats

Rating: 4.1 reviews (53 reviews)
Address: 1121 Rossi Road Ste 2
Opening days/hours: Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Highest review:Great little meat shop in Templeton. We bought bone in grass fed rib eye and their in-house hickory bacon. The rib-eye was cut perfectly with just a thin ribbon of fat along the edge that kept it juicy during cooking. The bacon was a good balance of meat and fat and the flavors were excellent – a little too salty for our tastes however we’re fairly sensitive to salt. Will definitely return if in the area.” – Sharon G.
