Gloria's should not be a Secret!

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... read more

Fantastic food, great service! The special, taco salad was amazing. As always you feel right at home at Gloria's.

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

About the menu; all lunches are $12-15, dinners are $15-17+. The lunch special today was also $12.00 which is pretty steep for a lunch in a small cafe in Beaverton. About the food: It was very tasty. The salsa is pretty hot and seems to get hotter as you eat it About the cafe: It has 4 tables and two... More

Gloria's is a wonderful spot tucked away on a street that runs parallel to the 8. Gloria is lovely and the food was spectacular! I had some enchiladas and soup and it was so delicious I wanted to lick the plate. Gloria told us she gets her chilies at the local famers market and everything tasted made from scratch! Go... More

Excellent food. Drinks aren't really available, though; bring your own drinks (beer, wine) for dinner!

Gloria is a sweet welcoming woman. Her place is tiny with plastic tablecloths and only cans of coke to drink due to limited space. The habanero chicken was spicy and tender heaven. Mole, chuletas and paella were also crazy good. We were there for lunch and She is only open for dinner by reservation and it's BYOB/BYOW. Four guest minimum... More

Tiny, four table restaurant with a few more outdoor seats (hope for sun), this little cafe rocks! Owner, chef, server, and wonderful conversationalist, Gloria, manages to deliver top notch food, service and value totally on her own! For a taste of El Salvador, this is the place to go. You'll feel as if you're in her home. Relax, and enjoy... More

Have read fantastic reviews of Gloria's Secret Cafe in local media for a couple of years. Not sure why I hadn't gone in until recently, but I am glad I did. I have been back four times in a two week period. Yes, it is that good! My first experience was on a recent evening when my brother was visiting... More
