Went to Gloria's for a farewell brunch and it was good. I had never had Latin cuisine for brunch so I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. The bloody mary was just ok, though. I didn't order a 2nd one like I normally would

Complementary black bean dip and homemade chips rock. I always seem to get the delicious Salmon Conteño, but honestly, I have never tasted anything here that wasn't great. Tamales wrapped in banana leaves v corn husk insures you this isn't a Mexican restaurant. Wine list...More

Sat outside for the children and they could get in and out to the splash pad. Menu has many choices, wait staff is excellent, brought refills when asked. Food is good.

We have enjoyed eating at Gloria's. It is not our favorite Tex Mex restaurant, but it is up there. The environment is good. The food is very good and authentic. The service is average.

Excellent! Excellent! Upscale very nice restaurant. A step above the normal Latin meal. We all had skirt steak in one fashion or another. No one was disappointed. The queso was amazing also and great service.

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.
