Description: Gloria and Jose Fuentes were seventeen years old when they arrived to the...
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.

Friday night and busy as all restaurants are in the area. There is not much to buffer the sound, so the place is/can be very loud. If you have been seated by a large group, ask to be moved. I had the house enchilada special. And my wife had a 2 enchilada plate. She tried mine and I tried hers-... More

This is a very pretty restaurant with a great patio. Our party of 5 had several dishes. The tamales were a miss and flavorless. The enchilada could have used some more flavor. But the ground beef chili relleno was excellent. The spicy pineapple margarita was great but the sangria was just red wine on ice. Sent back. The food was... More

I have eaten at Gloria's for years...lunch, happy hour, dinner...with work colleagues, with friends, with dates. Gloria's serves both TexMex and El Salvadorian food. They make a great virgin mojito --which is hard to find. My favorite entree is the Gloria's Super Special -- a tamale, a pupusa (cheese, pork or mix), plantains -- the best of everything. The Addison... More

Gloria's is a Latin Salvadoran, Tex Mex, and Mexican cuisine all put together in one. The menu choices are enough to bring out the appetite in everyone. The sophistication and detailed put into every dish, is to be admired. When you enter the restaurant the ambiance is classy and brings out a festive kind of atmosphere. At first you are... More

A local at the hotel we where we were staying recommended it. We had quick and very good service. Prices were a little higher than expected when we got there, but the portions were huge and the food was excellently prepared.

When I first visited Gloria's, it was for an industry function and we sat outside on the patio. The food was good, but the atmosphere was a little lacking. Upon my latest visit....I found a complete revamping of the decor. Modern Mexican Food with a continental flair! The food is still very good and the atmosphere is very appealing. Pricing... More
