“Very average place”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We decided to try this place because it has good reviews here, but were a little disupointed. The food was very much tasteless, especially the salad. Tasted like a grass, and I love salads... Would not go back.

“Orale Andale!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The food was excellent. It is very difficult to find a moderately priced and delicious meal. Orale gets it right. The food was very fresh, a fact that came across in every bite. We had a special for 2 which was served in a hot stone cauldron of sorts. (I forget the Spanish word they used) in it were shrimp skewers with grilled pineapple. There were slices of ribeye steak- real ribeye as I know the cuts of meat. There were thin slices of chicken breast as well as lechon ( roast pork). This was nestled together with sweet onions all grilled and served in it's own divine pot liquor. The side dish of dried beans, rice, lettuce, tomato and guacamole was also very fresh. The guacamole was delicious and I could have made a meal of the beans as they were the best I've ever had. I have lived in Mexico and the food at Orale is the BEST Mexican food I have ever had. The ambience is slightly lacking but the food and service make up for it. I will definitely be back.

“Cute atmosphere”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I had been looking for exactly this kind of Mexican place for a while - not too sophisticated (e.g. Mercadito), but also not a dump (e.g. La Bamba III in Ft Lauderdale). You know, something with lots of sombreros on wood-paneled walls, big margaritas and enchiladas that could make even your mother-in-law stop complaining and smile.
This still isn't quite that good, but it gets close.
I admit, my standards have lowered considerably since moving to South Florida (why is it so hard to find decent Mexican food here???), but Orale is still a great place to get your fajita and margarita fix without having to resort to a chain restaurant.
I had the Camarones del Diablo, which were really, really good. Shrimp in a creamy, spicy sauce. The margaritas are so-so, but they are also pretty cheap.
