This restaurant is just good Mexican food all the way around. If you like guacamole - it's fresh and spot on. I had the tacos - which is a "plain" option considering all of the options available, but I will tell you they were really good. The flavor was awesome and everything was served hot! And you won't wait forever,... More

Pure has one of the best Lamb Burgers in town. It is the only item I've tried there but it may really well be the only item I will ever order...Vividly recommended for all lamb lovers like me!

We are picky about food, and this place always delivers. Definitely casual, with a south of the border feel, but updated freshness. Only complaint....a bit noisy.

This is our favorite Pure location. Had dinner after the Wire & Wood Songwriters Festival. Texas Margaritas are delicious! Tacos are excellent and their guacamole is exceptional. Miss the brisket tacos from long ago but the carne asada tacos are great too.

Have been a huge fan of PURE for years.. The Sedgewick margaritas are amazing.. Queso w jalapeño is also a treat... It is a perfect beginning for the famous Fish Tacos.. The best I've ever had... Great ambiance, friendly and fun staff along with terrific food and margaritas make this place a winner EVERYTIME

Went on a Wednesday to enjoy an fall afternoon and enjoyed the usual good food but less than that on service. Seemed that our server wasn't as interested in coming back to check if we had decided on drinks/apps/or food as she was in catching up with the bartender. After-all it would have been a whole 20 feet she had... More

We sat outside -- very lively, noisy place even early evening on Sunday. Grilled fish tacos were good. Quesadilla is deep fried - more like empanadas than any quesadilla I have had. Nice quick meal. Not a destination, at least for me.

Very good food. Tacos are our faves. A negative is that it can be extremely L O U D in the main dining room where we last ate (on a Tuesday night) when we recently met some friends for dinner. And we aren't a couple of "old fogey's" :) We did enjoy ourselves and it a first visit for our... More

We went to pure Taqueria in Alpharetta last night. It was overwhelmed by families. They did not have enough high chairs for all the children and we had to sit with the toddler on our laps as several other tables were doing. The service was spotty. The managers were trying their hardest. We had to remind our server that we... More

Fun atmosphere, the food is good and not overpriced. The margaritas are STRONG. I can drink just one. After two I am headed for a hangover! I am a bit of a lightweight but my friends agree, the margaritas are strong. Not a romantic restaurant, more of a party atmosphere. To loud for anything but raised voice conversation. We finally...

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.
