There’s no pretense at a great taqueria! It’s the place where you get tacos, tequila, and a smile. PURE taqueria has tapped the essence of the traditional, beach-side Mexican taqueria and given it an extra helping of Southern hospitality. Atlanta’s best Margaritas, over 80 tequilas, and food that is fresh, authentic, and delicious! Colorful, loud, hip and friendly, PURE is a hit with Guests and critics alike.

Great, Fresh Mexican Food

This is a really "hip" place that serves only Mexican food. All the salsa is fresh fresh fresh, as is everything in every meal. Meat is lean and flavored perfectly. It's a small, tightly packed restaurant on a weekend, and parking is limited, so try to go before 6pm. There may be a slight wait, but... read more

if your looking for Mexican food don't go here. I ordered a quesadilla it came out fried looking like an empanada which wouldn't of been a problem except it tasted like bland fried dough. the salsa and chips were ok and the margarita was good. the beans were watery and had no taste to them either.

Duck is back on the menu - we go often for that item and for lamb shanks. Both are very good. Go before 6:00 PM to avoid the wait. It is too loud and they should turn down or turn off the music. Go for either the Texas or the Hardwick margarita.

I travel frequently for work, consequently I dine out often. After awhile it gets old ordering, so I've taken to occasionally leaving my order to the server to choose...no suggestions or guidelines. I have yet to be disappointed with this approach, usually I get something that I would not have ordered myself. When I visited PURE and had the server... More

I have been to Pure Taqueria in Alpharetta twice now, and both times had an excellent meal. It is always crowded but the wait is never too long. The food is worth waiting for! If you are looking for a quiet evening out, though, this is not the place. It is quite loud and the tables are very close together.

Last February, we had a Snowpocalypse here in the Atlanta area. I got snowed in at school with students that could not get home, due to school buses being stuck in dead-stop traffic jams on icy roads. Another brave teacher wandered out to PURE taqueria (it's a walk-able distance from school) and came back with some fish tacos, Pescado Tacos.... More

All you can say is wow! The food was hot, delicious, and served perfectly. The value is there for anyone who has tried others in the area. There is just a feeling of fun and friendliness the moment you enter this place. The management of Pure is constantly improving. Their attention to their customers is rivaled by none. You can't...

All the mexican restaurants in Alpharetta are very noisy. This isn't very desirable but this is the choice you are left with, no choice at all. Took visiting family there around thanksgiving. I liked it and so did the visiting family. I thought the food was good, the service was good for a very busy restaurant, and the ambiance OKay.... More

Snagged a table on a busy Saturday evening. Order the tacos which were offered on the evening's Specials. Unfortunately, they were very soggy and each one fell apart upon being picked up. The service was poor that night for us. Our waitress was very cool acting and not very friendly - had a somewhat condescending manner. This place was always... More
