Excellent food, good sized portions, only wish for more vegetarian options

Excellent food! My wife is gluten-intolerant and I don’t eat meat. But we found an absolutely delicious vegetarian dish that somehow (given it was mostly rice, beans and cheese - with a very fresh side salad) extremely well seasoned and tasty. In fact, we took some leftovers home and our son told... read more

Went here for lunch after reading all the wonderful review. However, I was some what disappointed with the food. I order chicken tamales instead I got pork. Which were over salted and looked nothing like the server discribed. I talked to the server but she insisted they were chicken. The chicken mole my boyfriends was delicious. Cute decor and somewhat... More

Been eating here for 5 years and the issue was always they didn't take credit cards and I don't carry cash. What was fixed last month, and now we eat their a few times a week. Gloria has many regulars who you tend to see often, the menu is small and some of the items need to be ordered a... More

Everyone raves about the interesting and delicious tamales at Salvador Molly's, and they're right-- they're very good. These. Are. Better. Seriously, if you like Salvador Molly's eclectic foods, you'll like this place even more. It's a real hole in the wall so you might need to look twice to see it.

What can you say about Gloria? She makes you feel as if you stumbled onto a great little cafe in a far away town. Her food is great, even though you have to BYOB.

Very friendly servers, Gloria greets each table. The daily special was wonderful! The other order was average. The food is not spicy, the salsa was very mild. The restaurant itself is very tiny and unique, a fun place to visit in, the short street that is, downtown Beaverton. The menu is small and some things may run out early, all... More

Skip all those chain restaurants and hunt down Gloria's. You are going to have to look as it is not in the strip malls or along the main roads. But the food is worth the hunt. This is family cooking and personal service at its best. The food is unique and flavorful.

We were walking along Broadway Street on a Friday afternoon and decided to stop in at Gloria's Secret Cafe. I had seen Gloria's reviews on tripadvisor but had never been in before. I was excited when we entered because the restaurant is tiny and has a hand layered decor. This is the kind of local place that we've learned have... More

very small, I think 5-6 tables. located in the downtown area of Beaverton just off SW Hall. this area has a lot to offer and worth a look around. I was there for lunch on a Saturday and the food was very good. Music was a bit loud and totally not needed. Some of the food is on the spicy... More
