“Still great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The Purple Rose has been open since the '80s. I had not been there since '97. The food is still great. The drinks are generous pour. The décor is over the top fun! The staff is long-time dedicated locals, and new staff are inducted into the spirit of excellent, friendly service. Hats off to this establishment.

“"Margaritaville" on the California Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Visited with a large group and they got us in and served very promptly. Was told by a local to try try the "top Line" margarita, I like it blended with salt. It was great. I had the Machaca (shredded beef) tacos. I thought they were very good and liked the way they added shredded olives to them

“Great food and great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

This place is well worth the visit. The food is really good.
Nice portions of food and the price is really reasonable. Better prices and better food then a lot of other places in Fort Bragg and the surrounding area. You shouldn't be disappointed.

“Come for the Margaritas, stay for the dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The restaurant is open Tuesday-Saturday but is worth the search for open days-Tuesday-Saturday. First up is the margarita menu. Must 30 different tequilas in three quality ranges. We tried two different and both were excellent. Dinner was good too, we had enchiladas and tacos with rice and beans. Prompt service and it was all tasty. The restaurant is modest sized and fairly popular when we were there. Few empty seats. Decorated with all sorts of interesting Mexican art. The service was prompt and friendly. They do not take credit cards.

“Fabulous Margaritas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were glad to see this restaurant was open during our stay in Ft Bragg. It is closed Sunday and Monday. The Margarita menu is extensive, offering lots of tequila choices at 3 different price levels. We tried two different choices - both were great. The food was also very good. My tacos and enchilada were very tasty and not heavy or greasy. We will visit this place again next time we're in Ft Bragg.
