My family and I are regulars at this place. We keep going back because everything's good: atmosphere (feels like you're at someone's home; great drinks too), great food, quick, friendly and attentive staff. Only criticism (not really, just something to be aware of): the place isn't huge, so get there early, as it fills up quickly.

I have been eating here whenever I visit my parents for a few years now and with each trip it seems like the restaurant just gets LOUDER! Forget having a conversation about how nice the Guacamole is. Don't even try to comment on the fajitas or compliment the margaritas. The only way to communicate with the people at your table... More

Ate here yesterday with my wife. We found the food to be disappointing. Beans were oily while the chicken was bone dry. Over all we left feeling as if we had wasted time and money. Service was OK but a little slow.

To say I was underwhelmed is an understatement but if you're interested in going to a taqueria, go to Taqueria Tsunami. I sat at the bar. The location looks like an old garage turned into a bar. The bartender and his buddy spent a lot of time on a juicer and little on people. Got the soft shell crab tacos.... More

Rice tasteless, charro beans too firm for my taste. Loud music. Nerve rackingingly loud. Not the most attentive server. Tables too close together. Two different customers were trying to figure out how to get out once people sat down. A lady finally stood up and moved her table...but the grilled chicken was really good and the plate was beautifully presented.

We frequent Pure taqueria. The skinny margarits are my fav. You must add a floater. The food is always fresh. The restaurant is lively.

One of my favorites for really good food and drinks. Friendly and great service. Food is prepared well and several notches above your regular taqueria food.

I recently had the opportunity to take my parents to pure for the first time. They were simply amazed at how good both the food and service was. There was only three of us however we ate two bowls of the cheese dip. I would highly recommend the fajitas.

Wonderful Latin American inspired food and great selection of cocktails. A nice casual spot and a real change of pace.

The music is way too loud, the service was fair, and the food was expensive versus quality/quantity. One of our fellow diners ordered a unique Mexican dinner special with octopus that didn't contain any octopus. They don't get it so we won't be back.

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.
