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.

Very good food, excellent service

I'm eaten at Gloria's a number of times. The food is always been good. The service is excellent. Gloria's has recently remodeled and the dining room is even more attractive. I like to get the typical Salvadorian platter which is excellent. Gloria's serves a complimentary black bean tip which... read more

It was crowded,but the atmosphere was lively. Waited at the bar for a table and bartender brought us chips and salsa to snack on with our drinks (free). They were SUPER Busy but service was still great. Will definitely go back again for lively weekend people watching and ambiance.

Joey was our server and was extremely polite and attentive. We were a challenging large party of 12, but everything went off without a hitch. The food and drinks were absolutely spectacular. Great place for a family dinner!

Very dissatisfied with service. This is not the first time we have had a very very poor experience. We frequent this particular location two to three times a week along with the Friso location. We have NEVER in over 10 years had a bad experience at the Frisco location. Glorias off of Beltline continues to disappoint. On todays visit we... More

Came in here with about 40 adults/kids and they handled it exceptionally well to my surprise. Wait was minimal- 1 beer! On a Thursday night. Food was exceptional. I love seafood but normally stay away from seafood soup. But, here I had to try it. It was excellent. Plenty of fish/shrimp/lobster included. Everybody loved the food. Drinks were well served....

Enjoyed our dinner out on the heated patio on a cool February evening. It took us forever to decide what to have given the extensive menu, which means we filled up on chips, salsa and beans and were not really hungry when our food arrived. That was a shame, because it was very good and we weren't able to eat... More

I have been to this location a few times over the years. Overall, all of my experiences here have been good. With the remodel and expansion going on, sometimes the servers get overwhelmed with the amount of tables that have to cover. Luckily they keep the bean and salsa dip coming so I don't mind. The fried plantains are my... More
