Amazing food, beautiful setting, and cruelty-free food! Highly recommend to anyone. My boyfriend isn’t vegan but loved this food just as much as I did. A hidden gem! I ordered the fish sandwich and it was fantastic, along with the ginger turmeric lemonade

Started my meal with delicious sweet potato pie and ended with the Soul Rolls, greens, and a sweet tea. Textures and flavors were on point! I was in the area for a conference but will def find time to make the almost hour-long drive to enjoy Pure Soul again.

I had their NC BBQ plate with coleslaw, Mac and ceaser salad. I also got their homemade lemonade and caramel cheesecake. Everything was delicious, the service was great and prompt. I especially liked the sides I picked and the cheesecake was so good. Great comfort food. Good portion size, I'll definitely be back.

We were instantly greeted by the nicest woman. The food was more than ample, but because it was ALL delicious, I couldn’t stop eating until it was gone! A friend shared how good everything was, so we drove from Virginia to find out. We WILL be back!

This place was completely mind blowing. I’ve been Vegan for 2 years and I can now say with my full chest that i’ve had THE BEST soul food after going to this place. I came here with my dad and we got the impossible burger, chicken sandwich, and soul rolls and everything was just heaven. We both enjoyed this experience of music, pop up stands, food and much more and will surely be up here more. You outdid yourself Nick!

I love this place! Pure Soul's BBQ sandwich is the best barbecue I've had in years. Since going vegetarian I've missed a classic pulled pork sandwich, and this finally sated that craving! Y'all a great, keep doing what y'all do!

I ordered the deal of the day, a fake barbecue pork burger, which tasted great. There was a slight soy taste, but the texture made up for it (and all of the sauce covering it up). The waiting time was a bit long, but seeing as their staff was not huge it was fine. Pictures of the menu and burger below!,

Phenomenal! Food and service were both absolutely wonderful. We stopped for an early dinner while we were driving through the area. We could not have picked a better place. All of the food was incredible! We especially loved the NC BBQ plate and all of the gluten free options. We sat outside on the shaded and plant-filled patio with our dogs, and it was surprisingly peaceful given the location. We will certainly be back every time we are even close to this magical place.

One of my favorites in the Durham area. Delicious and creative vegan bbq, comfortable seating and ambiance, the nicest staff, a real gem. We’ve loved everything we’ve ordered here, but have a soft spot for the Soul Mac.

Best BBQ I have ever had. My daughter is a vegan, and I try to eat vegan as much as I can. The bbq made in house is amazing. It is made from locally sourced soy beans, so you know you are getting homemade. It is absolutely delicious. The mac and cheese is perfect as well. We were just passing through NC, but I am sure glad we stopped.

The food was a pleasant surprise! I've wanted to try this place out for a few months now. I came with my friends and sisters for my birthday! No one was vegan but they all enjoyed the food! We all ordered different dishes, so we could try each other's. I ordered the Kind Chicken sandwich, other's ordered shrimp and rice with a side of kale salad and corn bread. The corn bread is super moist!!! My kind Chicken sandwich is my go to now. Also ordered was the impossible burger and the egg rolls! I definitely will be coming back!!! The artwork in the back room is awesome!

Update 3/4/22 I stopped in For a vegan (chicken) Christine and Brianna were very professional and kind. They were knowledgeable about the menu items and helped me make a great selection. They asked me questions and genuinely kept me engaged short while until the food came out from the kitchen. While I sat in the parking lot many people came and went with bags of ordered food. It is great having options for healthy food in Durham😊 This is a remake of the previous vegan restaurant. The fish sandwich was great fast friendly service. I will be back. A welcome addition to the neighborhood. It's so organized in the restaurant they get the orders out quickly and you have got to try the sides the kale and mac and cheese are my favorites. They always have a tempting snack in the case up front.

Absolutely the sweetest delivery experience! Not to mention the food tasted very authentic and better yet, was fully vegan! Couldn't ask for more. Usually through delivery, restaurants are kinda careless, but not this one! I would have taken pictures of the food but my family was so hangry we devoured the food. 10/10 customer experience and 10/10 food quality. This was also my first time trying vegan corn bread and I was not disappointed. Consider us a loyal customer :)

Pure Soul is our favorite place!! Everything we've had so far is crazy good. Their new addition "chicken salad sandwich" tastes better than any Auntie could make, I promise you, and it's not even real chicken. I dream about their Soul Mac, and we had their bbq catering for Thanksgiving because my partner is vegan... and everyone was equally obsessed! Plus the prices are great. I know I sound a little overboard, but you really can't compete with this place. Even the staff is amazing and so cheerful and friendly. Their desserts are also so good that we have made it a tradition to get one each time we go. I thank God for this place on a weekly average 🙏🙌

I ate here a couple times while visiting the area. The food was so good I just wanted to try everything! The fish was great, I have a hard time finding good vegan fish but that really hit the spot. The soul rolls were amazing and such a unique dish. The barbeque was excellent and the mac and cheese was some of the best I've had in a really long time! I enjoyed the cold slaw as well. Can't recommend this place enough.

The taste. The vibe. The affordability. The cause. The kindness. They've got it all right. I'm so happy to support this local biz. My only complaint is that they're not open 24/7! 🥰

I tried Pure Soul for the first time and the customer service and ambiance was incredible! I ordered the soul roll and soul bowl! Both amazing!! Plus, the owner threw in a dessert for my son and a sweet tea! It was such a pleasant experience! I appreciate the level of professionalism and friendliness they offer! You have to try it for yourself 😃👍Believe me, you won’t be disappointed!

Very solid Southern Vegan comfort food. Spouse and I had the 'fish' sandwich and 'Po Boy respectively. Po Boy had a tasty sauce. My only concern was that it was a little assemble yourself. Spouse enjoyed the fish sandwich with zero complaints / concerns. Both of us really loved the Mac. It was tasty, savory and good in the many myriad of ways Mac should be. Just don't go in expecting traditional Mac and Cheese. The vegan goods are analogous (and equivalent or better) but not the same, so get your mind right and go enjoy it.
