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...

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.
