My wife and I really love this place. She partakes a couple of Margaritas and I enjoy the Mussels which is enough to be a meal. The fish tacos are very tasty and we find the atomsphere to be cozy and friendly. I read the less than glowing reviews next to mine on the right and we think this is... More

I could eat here 2-3 times a week. Everything I have tried, my family has tried and my friends have tried is good. hip atmosphere the tortas are ridiculous. Good service and on a warm spring/fall evening, there is no place better. get there early and plan to wait some because everyone knows this is the place.

As the lines are quite consistent, From time to time I try this place to see what I am missing. Apparently, nothing. As in my previous experience, the drinks are strong and the tequila must be cheap as it gives me a headache within an hour or two. The wait staff seems inexperienced. My simple order was mixed up, and... More

Went there again tonight after a long hiatus and can honestly say- its still mediocre. The food is basically prepared in advance so nothing spectacular to wait for. Its served by people who have no idea what they're doing and, in my opinion, below average. The owner is quite nice and thanks us for coming. Nice touch. If the server... More

Lived in Alpharetta 20 years. This is our favorite spot. High quality authentic Mexican food. This is not a huge menu tex mex burritos and chimichanga place. Ceviche appetizer, steak, chicken, pork or fish on a soft taco with cilantro and onion just like we have had in Mexico many times. There are a couple of specialty entrees that are... More

Since they opened, we have enjoyed hitting the Alpharetta location of Pure with visiting co-workers or friends who live in the area. This is a noisy, hip, bar vibe and I would not recommend it for a family meal, but it is a fun place to have a margarita and some apps with pals to wind down after a hectic... More

I ate there last night with my wife and sons. We have eaten there before and enjoyed it so decided to go again. Our server was Jerry. He was horrible. It literally took over 16 minutes to get our first round of drinks. There were other tables but it wasn't real busy. He was more concerned with finding out who... More

I have been to every PURE location in Atlanta. Amazing concept...fun, funky, and always busy. The fish tacos are superb and the crab fritters (appetizer) are like none other. The margaritas are STRONG - you get your moneys worth here. They have everything from enchiladas to duck confit. Burrito Americano is a huge portion and reasonably priced. They have lighter... More

Casual atmosphere. Valet parking available. Music seemed to be louder than necessary. Decent food. Not many choices for the Vegetarian palate.
