I stopped in en route not knowing anything about this restaurant. It has a delightful Latino interior. Exceedingly clean. The server was very friendly, helpful and flexible. The food was fresh and tasty. I had Mexican carnitos tostada. Next time, I am going to try El Salvador fare.

Chips and salsa with a Mexican and Ecuadorian menu. Wow. Adobo sauce was Rico. Carnitas , plantains and beans were all worth the time looking for a parking spot. Gotta try this DDD find in LA

Needed to find a place for lunch close to Sony Studios after watching 3 tapings of Jeopardy. Google found Gloria's café and we gave it a try. Absolutely excellent. My son and I had burritos and my wife had enchiladas. Nothing left on any plates!! Would never have stopped here if not for seeing the good reviews. In a very... More

We wanted to celebrate our Salvadoran friends' accomplishment, so we took off to L.A. to Gloria's and met Gloria in person. She was so friendly and made sure we felt in casa. The portions are very large, but we seemed to finish it all except my wife's chicken tortilla soup! The trip was worth it! Such rich flavors! And authentic!... More

This is my second time having dinner here. Twice, I have had great service, great food, and great drinks! Some of my friends have come here after receiving my recommendations. They enjoyed the traditional Salvadorian cuisines.

I have been dining at Gloria's for over 5 years. They have some very good dishes. My two favorites are the 7 Seas Soup and the Carne Adobada dinner. The portions are a good size. The problem sometimes is the service is not organized. Recently I received my dinner and the corn tortillas did not come out for about another... More

For those of you who have read my previous reviews, you know I shoot straight from the hip: no nonsense – just the facts. There are some tell-tell signs if a restaurant is good or not: a full parking lot or being unable to get a reservation. Gloria’s is located in a strip mall with limited parking; but here’s what...

Gloria's is a great hidden gem right on the edge of Culver City in Los Angeles. My two favorite dishes are the seven seas soup and the Carne Adobada. There sangria is quite tasty as well. A warning on Saturday nights they can get busy so there can be a wait.

I was a little hesitant when I asked about gluten-free food on the menu, but the staff said nothing had wheat added to it (except the wheat tortillas, obviously) and no soy sauce. They were familiar with the term, which is more than I could say for nearby Versailles. The menu has a lot of standard Mexican but I opted... More

I travel from Las Vegas to LA and I stop by to check on Glorias cafe as I watched it from Triple D. My expectation is high but this place disappoint me.
