“Fabulous Margaritas”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We were glad to see this restaurant was open during our stay in Ft Bragg. It is closed Sunday and Monday. The Margarita menu is extensive, offering lots of tequila choices at 3 different price levels. We tried two different choices - both were great. The food was also very good. My tacos and enchilada were very tasty and not heavy or greasy. We will visit this place again next time we're in Ft Bragg.

“disappointed”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

We were looking for a Mexican restaurant to eat at, so we tried this place. My husband ordered the tacos, which were just plain tacos. I ordered the chicken burrito. I received a chopped up chicken thigh in a flour taco shell with a little bit of red sauce on top of it. No seasonings, no onion, garlic, lime, lettuce, cheese, beans,cilantro; nothing. It was tasteless! We were completely ignored. We will not go back there. Denny's is a better place to eat at than this Purple Rose.

“Great Margaritas, Mediocre Food”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

We checked the reviews before trying out the Purple Rose during our recent stay in Fort Bragg. Many of the reviews mentioned the great margaritas, and we agree. Sadly, the food was average at best, bland, Americanized Mexican food. Generous portions, so if you're hungry and like your Mex on the mild side, maybe this is the place for you. Homey atmosphere, seemed like a lot of locals eating there on a Saturday night. They were short on help the evening we dined there so the food was a long time coming out of the kitchen, but the servers kept us stocked in chips and salsa while we waited. There's many better choices in restaurants in Fort Bragg, Mendocino and the surrounding area, so we probably won't dine here again on future visits.

“Save your money”
Reviewed 3 February 2013 via mobile

Something has gone terribly wrong with the food at the purple rose. Used to be good. Now it's frozen food made by a microwave. Discussing! Thankfully they have good margaritas so you can drink some liquid courage before attempting to eat this cruddy food. I won't be back unless I have to. Gross! Thanks for the stomach ache!
