It is a very small restaurant that you can call and preorder to take out. The food is actually very good and priced right.

Pure burger has the best veggie and vegan burgers. The only thing that disappoints me is the wait time but I will go back.

I usually buy a Groupon for Pure Burger but I would definitely eat here even if there wasn't one available. Very good, fresh food and plenty of gluten free options. Delicious.

Hi, thank you for the review, but I think this must be wrong restaurant. We are fanous for our avocado toppings offered on all items including our Loaded fries too. There is a bottle of Organic ketchup on each table.

Enjoyed this burger very much. Only complaint was the size! Too small. But then again, it's probably a healthy size. Juicy but not greasy and loved the fact that it's grass fed meat. Healthier choice. The fries were good but still fresher tasting at In-and-out....More

We are always on the lookout to try new burger restaurants and this one was a real winner. To start the Pure Burger is just that; the finest grass fed, fresh ground meat I have ever had. Not gamey but just the best "pure" flavor...More

Recently tried to go to Pure Burger in Carlsbad but could not stand the extremely LOUD Rap music that was playing in the restaurant. Did not get to try this restaurant because of the music. We went to Pieology next door instead. Nice out door...More
