I'm sad this place closed down, they had really good, healthy food. The GF options on the Ocean City boardwalk are down to zero again. Bummer.

We ate here in October when in town for Indian Summer weekend. It was absolutely delicious and it was all gluten free (which is nearly impossible to find on the boardwalk). We are back in OCNJ and were looking forward to enjoying our tacos. It...More

Had the BBQ pork tacos and the meat was so tender and good. Really enjoyed it with the bonus of the place being gluten free. Great food for everyone!

Great tacos in different varieties - fish, beef, pork. Everything is free and made as you wait. Excellent homemade chips as well. Definitely a nice change from the typical boardwalk pizza options, and very reasonable as well.

Great place to go and know that you are getting gluten free food. Fresh, and Delicious! Love that there is somewhere I can take my kids on the boardwalk. Great location and easy to find.

The ONLY 100% gluten-free eatery on the Ocean City Boardwalk...and DELICIOUS at that! Having celiac disease has been a little inconvenient while we've been at the shore (I eat before we head to the boardwalk and my family usually gets pizza once we get there)....More

Fresh and fast. Tastes great. Fish tacos and beef tacos are excellent. They pack them so it's convenient to take them on the beach. A little pricey though.

Pure Tacos is an exciting upgrade to the food landscape on the Boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ. The quick-casual style restaurant offers premium tacos, nachos and salads to beachgoers hungry for chef-quality food served fast. Well received last summer, food critic Craig LaBan of the Philadelphia Inquirer called the tacos “impressive”.Fresh, healthy ingredients create authentic Mexican flavors such as achiote grilled steak with onion, cilantro, salsa and guacamole, familiar flavors like braised chicken with cheese, lettuce, salsa and sour cream, and fusion flavors including orange-chili fish tacos and BBQ pulled pork tacos. Salsas and sauces are housemade and everything is naturally gluten-free.A visually stimulating design backs up the mouthwatering menu. You can’t miss the red exterior and white awning; Phillies’ fans can even keep up with the action on one of the flat panel TV screens.
