Pure Taqueria is opening in Roswell- Alpharetta Hwy and Crabapple (across from the old cemetery).

You mean Alpharetta hwy & Woodstock?  Either way good to know.

Yes on Highway 9 just north of Woodstock- across from Thumbs Up and that burger place.  They were out there working by 8 this AM.

We went a couple of times to the Alpharetta location but the parking and seating were so frustratingly limited we never bothered to go back.  Hope this new location is a little roomier with better parking.  We liked their food and service.

Was told yesterday that they will open on 9/17. Looks like they've still got some work to do... so we'll see.

Had dinner there last night. Absolutely top notch.  Some friends and I went and we tried two apps, 1 small plate,  3 entree, and 3 deserts, not to mention lots of wine.  Everything was great.  Highlights are the arancini, pork chops, and the panna cotta.  The owner is very friendly and obviously very passionate about wine.

Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

Pure Taqueria on Highway 9 in Roswell is open- bigger, louder and more crowded than the Alpharetta location.  If you are wanting to have a conversation, sit outside.  If you want to get a drink at the bar, be prepared for a long wait.

+1 On the noise.  We went a week ago and they seemed to still be working out the kinks in their service.  They were slow and  forgetful.  The food was pretty unmemorable, except for the rather high price.  It was lacking in any kind of punch or original flavor.  I'm sure they can get the service side together but the food really needs to be brought up a notch or five.  We had not been to Pure for a while so I don't know if this is endemic of all their locations now or just this one.
Unfortunately, a conclusion is usually the place where you got tired of thinking.

A new BBQ joint on 78 just past Park Place on the right back in the plaza.  Actually they may be open for the first time today or on Saturday.  I talked to one of the owners Wanda Lovejoy, she says they are fixing Kansas City style BBQ with some Georgia twists.  Name of the place is "Stone Mountain Bar-B-Q"

At the corner of East Park Pl Blvd & Rockbridge Rd. 

Stone Mountain Bar-B-Q
5370 Hwy 78 (Stone Mountain Hwy)
Stone Mtn, GA

Obviously only so far I can go based on samplings at a "Taste of X" but no question whatsoever, the undisputed star of the Taste of Roswell was their short ribs and grits as well as I think it was a butterscotch and caramel panna cotta. Between the nibbles I had and the positive reviews I've heard, this may be the best debut in uOTPia since Bite.

Jim Stacey's name is not mentioned in the article is it? I love Get Delicious and his Palookaville brand.

Taco Linda Vista on 9 and Holcombe Bridge.  I think it just opened.  Anyone been?   There is a new sign for $1.99 breakfast burrito.  I may have to explore next week.
