I have visited this restaurant many times as we have a vacation home in the Fort Bragg area. The food is always good...not great but good. But this last time we came in the new waitress was horrible. Black short hair i think her name was Rochelle or Michelle Im not sure. What I do know was the girl... read more

I kept hearing how great the Purple Rose is..., I won't waste my time OR money returning. It wasn't worth the calories.

This restaurant is north of town by a few miles. The menu is pretty much standard fare for a Mexican restaurant. The food we ordered wasn't spicy, probably to suit their principle clientele. Our experience was a quiet one because we were there fairly late in the evening and there weren't a lot of people. This is a good restaurant.... More

I only go here because my mother in law really likes this place. Their cheese enchiladas are the only thing I like...that is it and they are only okay! I haven't found another Mexican Food place I like in this area yet.

Every time we come up to Fort Bragg we have at least one dinner at The Purple Rose. Always a local favorite, The Purple Rose is first come, first served and cash only. Very good Mexican food, friendly staff and reasonable prices. Good drinks with a generous pour without those touristy swimming pool Margaritas with dumb little umbrellas. This is... More

Brought my family here on a weekend. Was really disappointed as I told my family that the reviews here were overall pretty good. Place wasn't super-busy, but service was slow and rude. First of all, it took forever just to have our order taken, the adults all got Margaritas, which took quite some time to get, one of us got... More

Everything was great. The service was great. Great salsa. Try the chile relleno, best I've ever had. The margarita was delicious and very strong! Might help to expand and add another bathroom but that's not why we went there, so no big deal.

good food, killer margaritas. Service is very good, and a lot of locals go there, so I recommend it.

We were camping at the State Park and decided to treat ourselves to a dinner out. Every time we drove by the parking lot was full so we decided to give it a try. Although it was crowded the service was very good and our dinners came out very quickly. All of us were very satisfied and although it wasn't... More

Food is okay, a little bland but typical of a California Mexican place catering to white people. $9 for the three Taco plate is nice plus $2 for a side of beans. This is the best Mexican place in Fort Bragg. They have a talented bartender who knows how to make good margaritas, even the well margarita is very good.
