Maple Heights: One of Cleveland’s first inner-ring suburbs, Maple Heights was incorporated as a village in 1915 and officially became a city on New Year’s Day, 1932. Then along came Ric Ocasek of The Cars who graduated from Maple Heights High School in 1963. Less than 50 years later, Rascal House sold its first RASCAL CHICKEN SANDWICH at 5220 Northfield Road. One bite of that juicy, golden brown whole chicken breast with crisp lettuce, ripe tomato and creamy mayo had everyone, not just Ric Ocasek, singing, its “Just What I Needed” and “Oh, oh, it’s magic!”
University Heights: University Heights is a first ring suburb on the east side of Cleveland. It began as Idlewood Village in 1908 but changed its name after John Carroll University moved there in 1925. There are lots of wonderful things in University Heights. For example, our FAMILY SIZED PASTA that serves 4-6 people. Ginormous portions of penne pasta or spaghetti simmering in our thick, hearty marinara sauce. Makes family night at 2255 Warrensville Center Road an awesome delight!
Euclid: Almost as old as Cleveland itself, Euclid was incorporated as a township in 1809. Named after the Greek mathematician, wait, did we say Greek? Now we’re thinking about our PIZZA ALA GRECO. And when we start thinking about our PIZZA ALA GRECO, we can’t stop thinking about our PIZZA ALA GRECO. Maybe if we just call it white pizza with Kalamata olives, a blend of feta and parmesan cheeses, brushed with garlic and olive oil. Nope, we still can’t stop thinking about our PIZZA ALA GRECO. Neither will you when you try it at 21050 Euclid Avenue!
University Circle: We know what you’re thinking. Being around the Cleveland Cultural Gardens makes you dream of GARDEN FRESH SALADS. Good thing you’re near Rascal House at 11316 Euclid Avenue, where we have more Garden Salads, Chef Salads, Char-Grilled Chicken Salads, Caesar Salads and Greek Salads than you could throw a fork at! Prepared fresh throughout the day from mixed greens, heads of crisp lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, shredded carrots, cabbage and cheeses.
Downtown: If you like skyscrapers and statues, you’ll find plenty of them downtown. Like Key Tower and that one built in 1927 that Dad’s always talking about. There’s also a statue of the man who started it all, Moses “I Have More Than One ‘A’ In My Last Name” Cleaveland. You know what else has more than one A? Meatball. As in, “Dad can’t stop talking about the BAKED MEATBALL SUB from Rascal House at 1836 Euclid Avenue.” He says, “if it’s not a baked Italian meatball sub with thick, hearty marinara sauce and melted provolone cheese from Rascal House, it’s just a metball sandwich.” Quick, someone get this man a #1 Dad mug!
