Description: 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.

I love Mexican food and I try it everywhere I go. The stand was clean but sadly the tacos didn't have much flavor. I got the beef tacos and the meat didn't have much flavor. It needed more seasoning. The salsa was also very bland. I chose the medium salsa and it had absolutly no heat whatsoever to it. I've had mild salsa with more of a kick to it. I ended up eating half of one of the tacos and throwing the rest away. A taco stand on the boardwalk is a great idea, they just need to tweak their recipe a bit.

I applaud this restaurant for trying to bring a healthy food option to an otherwise Diet Breaking Carb Fest also know as the boardwalk. But it fails to deliver a taste bud friendly product. I've given this place two chances to wow me with their tacos. Epic failure both times. The tilapia fish tacos, are cooked to order which is the only positive note. The flavorless mass of white fish cubes are nestled in the corn tortillas with the watery pan sauce that turns the tacos into more of a tortilla soup mess. Pass!

I visited Pure Tacos this weekend based on the recommendations on friends who have a child with celiac disease. All offerings, I believe, are gluten free. This little stand is a gift to Foodies who are looking for a quick bite on the boardwalk. A lovely break from slices of pizza, hot dog and sweet stands. I ordered an Authentic Chicken Taco and a Black Bean Taco. The two tacos came on a small bed of fresh, tortilla chips. The tacos were very good. All the ingredients were fresh - I was even delightfully surprised to find fresh cilantro in both tacos. While it can be a little "tricky" to eat tacos on a boardwalk bench (no tables), this was worth it.
