I decided to get the Southern Fried Drumstix and Yellow Rice. WOW!!!! It was awesome. If you're on a no-meat journey and are craving southern fried chicken, this meal and a little Texas Pete is a NC win! Highly recommended. Next time I'll add a salad.

First time here and I will be back! Got the grilled chkn sandwich, soul mac, Idaho potato fries, and honey mustard sauce. Placed the order online and it was ready to be picked up within 30 minutes. Soul mac was so flavorful and the homemade honey mustard was delicious on my fries and sandwich.

My wife and I saw this restaurant after shopping at an adjacent Indian mart. It’s tucked away in a corner and easy miss, and a big loss to miss. We tried it out today — both having the basic barbecue sandwich — and we loved it! Ton of flavor and great texture. Cheerful service, too, and I would recommend.

Wow! What great service and food. I also loved the outdoor seating and plants! It was our first time in and the staff were so friendly and helpful in navigating the menu and making sure we knew the ropes! We took a recommendation of the hot huney chikn sandwich and it was amazing! Really crispy, great toppings, and the hot huney sauce was sweet and had a lingering heat. I loved that there were homemade pickles and thin sliced red onions. It's nice for a sandwich to have that extra care. I got the greens as a side and they are a MUST if you like collard greens southern style. They were salty, spicy, vinegary and cooked to perfection. My wife got the buffalo ranch sandwich and loved it as well. It came with the same great toppings and chikn. She got the mac n cheese as a side and loved it. It was savory and creamy. We are excited to go back to try more things on the menu and thankful that our first experience was so great.

Christina was awesome! From the moment we stepped into the restaurant (first time) until she served our food, she was engaging! She answered every question, made suggestions, and most of all made it an excellent experience. We watched her with other customers, and she was super consistent. We definitely will go back! Thanks for lunch, Maleeka 😋

Oh my goodness! Wow, Pure Soul! Today was my mother and I first time visiting you all. From the positive and chill environment, spectacular vegan food, and delightful employees everything was wonderful! I absolutely loved the restroom signs. “Whatever. Just wash your hands.” 😂 Overall, this was an awesome experience and we will be back!! Keep up the good work everyone!

Everything on the menu looks delicious so I'll definitely be trying everything at least once! My first time I got the popular BBQ plate with the Soul Mac n cheese kale salad and slaw. I got the BBQ on a bun also! Never had better vegan food! So delicious! I see why the Mac was award winning! The BBQ had a sweetness to it that I loved! And the kale salad really won me over with the crunch chickpeas 🙌 The blueberry lemonade was refreshing & sweet as well! Customer service was great, the staff was super friendly. The restaurant has a lot of greenery which adds more life to the spot and makes it very aesthetically pleasing.

Wow!! Where to begin?! Everything about this place is top notch and well thought out and executed! The food is absolutely delicious, portions are huge for the price and we didn't have a long wait for our orders. (yes, we went back for seconds!) I especially loved the fish. I'm not sure how they did it, but it was the best vegan fish I ever had! The greens are organic, local and absolutely wonderful. The Mac n cheese was great as well! There's a case full of delicious, locally made desserts as well. The homemade lemonade comes with free refills. The restaurant is loaded with plants, friendly employees are ready to serve you and there's an outdoor dining area as well. Composting for almost all of the food containers/utensils is available as well. The bathrooms are clean and stocked with extra things like feminine care products. I would give more than 5 stars if possible. We cannot wait to visit again!
