Description: We are Orale! Contemporary Mexican Cuisine. For seventeen years Chef and owner Roberto Rodriguez has been delighting shoppers with his freshly prepared Mexican specialties at the Historic West Side Market in Cleveland, Ohio and, now, Orale! Contemporary Mexican Kitchen on W. 25th in Ohio City! Our unique selection of twenty-two varieties of salsas has gained local recognition over the years having been nominated several times Best Salsa in Cleveland. The team at Orale are always striving to appeal to all those searching for Mexican style cuisine with a flare. Our salsas range from the more traditional Salsa Verde and Pico de Gallo to more unique salsas like Pineapple, coconut and mint and Mango habanero salsa. The food items that we offer are no exception to this rule either. We offer a plethora vegan and vegetarian items and, of course, many items for meat lovers as well. Any way you slice it, we have a selection at both locations that will likely become a "house" favorite. Also, why not try Orale Catering Service? Whether you are planning a grand scale celebration or a casual get together with family and/or friend, the team at Orale will create a custom menu that will fit any budget. Our stand has been featured on the Food Network, Americas Best: Top Ten Destinations (West Side Market) and on local television broadcasts. Clevelands Scene Magazine and Plain Dealer have written several articles showcasing our food at the West Side Market and at the Orale Contemporary Mexican Kitchen.

Undeniably some of the best food my wife and I have had anywhere. The taste of the food was splendid and complex. I cannot say enough about this place and I hope they do well. They have a stand in the west side market as well. The tortilla soup was to die for. The salsas are fantastic. My quesadilla was great. Please go and enjoy, just make sure you save me a table as the place could be bigger and I hope there is growth. Waitress was wonderful which made the culinary experience even better. Thank you for the great food!

Very expensive and not great Mexican food. We go to Mexico one or two times per year, and we love to find great authentic Mexican cuisine in our area. This place is very small, had no atmosphere, and is way over-priced for the meal that we received. Very disappointing and over-priced

Just went last night and the food and service were great! The blue corn empanadas were "to die for". They have an outstanding selection of salsa's which you try as many as you would like! While they do not have a liquor license you can BYOB! I just went to doors down bought some beer and brought it back to the restaurant. The server opened the beer and poured it for us!

Located right near the West Side Market, where they have owned a stand for years, Orale turns out some authentic, tasty Mexican food at more than reasonable prices. The owner/staff are friendly and helpful and although it is realy tiny, you will have a nice time there. Check with them before going to see if they have a liquor license yet. If not, you may be able to bring your own hootch.
