Orale Orale, Everyday Downtown Mexican
Orale Orale is fine everyday Mexican fare in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Although the food is nowhere near the spectacular food you’d find at Cactus Tacqueria in the East Bay, La Morena in South San Francisco or La Tacqueria in the Mission, Orale Orale is in my opinion the best Mexican for the Downtown San Francisco at present. I particularly enjoy the flautas which are served best crispy and come covered with sour cream and guacamole with rice and beans on the side.
There is always a line at Orale Orale so you’d be advised to get their early if you want to get a seat. Fortunately I eat at 11:00 every day and it’s never a problem then – but by 11:30 you will be waiting. The service is quite good and fast at this busy restaurant as they are eager to get you out and the next paying customer in your seat. They are also very good at making sure your chip basket and salsa are refilled promptly as your table empties them.
