Description: 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.

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

Went here 2x for lunch in the course of a week while in Alpharetta on business. There are 2 reasons I didn't give it 5 stars: 1. Mushrooms.....they don't have a lot of veggie items on the menu and I actually asked and was offered a veggie burrito. Ordered it twice - both times without mushrooms. First time, it was... More

This is near my house, so I can actually walk here. The food is above average 'gourmet mexican', the drinks are way above average, the service can be good (but can also be spotty). Overall, it is one of my go to spots for a good evening. It is loud and crowded on the weekend especially, but isn't that part... More

This place is known for its bar and the be seen crowd each night. Go early as the line can get long in the evenings or go late after the rush. The food has always been very good. The Cuban sandwich is my staple order and the top shelf margaritas are delish.

I heard a lot of great things about this place, but was unimpressed. Bland, crowded, loud, below overage service.
