Just north of Fort Bragg, just before the little hamlet of Cleone, is the Purple Rose. Great Mexican food and wonderful margaritas. A small hole in the wall that has fed locals for decades and well worth the trip out of town. I recommend

The margaritas are large and delicious. Try the tamarindo. The food is only average. No credit or debit cards.

We found this restaurant by chance and were very glad we did. Very pleasant staff and very tasty Mexican food. Great margarita's also.

No two Mexican restaurants are the same. Very reasonable priced. My enchilada was a folded flour tortilla, stuffed with meat and sauce poured over it. Was it tasty? Yes. But different. No rice and beans served with Mr's chimichanga, though it was tasty. I would...More

Came here with family who live in the area based on their recommendation. The food was pretty good. Had a shredded beef burrito and chicken chimi.
