A meal at any of the Gloria's locations is always excellent. I prefer this location because it is not as hectic as the one over off Preston in the Shopping Center. Their menu is quite diverse, their service is excellent, and the food is always presented well.

Great food, little pricey, but hands down some of the best margaritas I've ever had! If you haven't tried, you should.

This is by far one of my favorite restaurants! The black bean dip is amazing! It's really what I came for. Our meals were great too though! We got tamales and they were wrapped in banana leaves and tasted very authentic. The skirt steak was a highlight. The flavor is amazing and it is the perfect tenderness. My husband got... More

Gloria's was one of the highlights of my trip to north Texas. They have an awesome menu with authentic Central American options. The prices are definitely not cheap, but the food is well worth what you pay. It can be very busy, so be prepared to wait.

We have been here 3 or 4 times, usually because my daughter's choose Gloria's for their birthday dinner. We have never been disappointed. The service is great, and the food is delicious. Tonight I got the skirt steak (forgot the actual name off the menu), and it was the most tender steak I have ever eaten- melted in my mouth.... More

Was able to get a table up back for small party of 6. Friends catching up over holidays. Service was good - chips and salsa a little slower than normal. Our server Ricardo was very good. Food was solid. Carne Asada was cooked nicely. Drinks were good. Nice atmosphere. Good meal. Overall, good experience.

We always visit Glorias when in this area. Six of us ranging in age from 13 to 73 all enjoyed our visit. Food was delicious, service friendly and price reasonable. I highly recommend Glorias for all ages.

Description
Humble Beginnings Gloria and Jose Fuentes were seventeen years old when they arrived to the United States in 1978. Like many other young Salvadorians, they were filled with hope - longing for a better life than what they were experiencing in a cruel and intense civil war, and civil chaos which lasted many years (decades) in El Salvador. Without knowing each other, Gloria and Jose settled in Houston, Texas and faced the precarious existence and survival difficulties of undocumented immigrants for some time. Now we're cookin' Fatefully, love created a miracle when they met and moved to Dallas to work with Gloria's sister at a Salvadorian restaurant, which her sister owned in Oak Cliff. A year later passed, and Gloria's sister gave up on the restaurant and Gloria and Jose chose to take over. Despite all the obstacles, and showing amazing resilience and a persistent work ethic, their life was beginning to change for the best. Playing an entrepreneurial role - with no previous knowledge - they registered the assumed Gloria's name before the Dallas County Clerk on April 15, 1986. A few months later they became legal U.S. Residents under the amnesty provisions of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Under Jose and Gloria's management, the little Salvadorian restaurant became distinguished for their tasty food. It was so full of flavor that an undercover critic of the Dallas Morning News gave them a very positive review. The next day there was a considerable line of Anglo clients waiting under the summer sun of Dallas, for an opportunity to indulge in the new and delicious dishes. Even William "Bill" Clements, Jr., The Governor of Texas at the time, was one of those curious customers. Gloria's growth has been a constant ever since then. Now boasting 15 Texas locations, the restaurant still serves the same delicious Latin cuisine that has been satifying hungry Texans for over 25 years.
