I go to Gloria's to meet friends for happy hour at least once every two weeks. There are several in the Dallas area, but it does not feel like a chain. Known for their margarita swirls, the food is consistent and flavorful. Good ambience, especially for families. Moderately priced, nice bar and outdoor seating area at the restaurant on Greenville...

We were recommended this restaurant by the staff at the Marriott Hotel. The food is Latin in flavor. I had the ceviche appetizer...excellent. My husband had Sopa Siete Mares (soup of the seven seas)...huge bowl full of seafood. Excellent!!! Chip, salsa and black bean puree are served on every table. Service was good. Indoor and covered outdoor seating.

This restaurant was recommended to me. I had the burrito and it was stuffed with lots of chicken. It came with rice and beans and the chips were wonderful! Great wait staff and restaurant was clean!

We had some of the worst service I've had at a restaurant, it really ruined the whole experience. They weren't even busy (b/c they weren't serving brunch) so I'm not sure why the service was so terrible. It was Mother's Day, aka National Go Out For Brunch Day & they didn't offer their normal weekend brunch menu. We had called... More

The food is excellent. Authentic Mexican. The atmosphere and décor look like your average Mexican restaurant. But, the food is way above average. Service is good. The waiter was very helpful. If you want Mexican food in Dallas this is a great choice. The prices are very reasonable.

Very good and unique food. However, it's definitely more el salvadorian food than Mexican food. It can be an acquired taste but I definitely enjoyed it.

If you could imagine a person who has never eaten Mexican food? I know its a religious experience in Texas but a good friend of mine from Boston was present an actually used the words "Taco Bell" I had no choice but to represent Texas as best as I could and Gloria's on Lemmon never disappoints. I had to go... More

I loved the blend of Salvadorian and TexMex food & spices. It was fun to try different dishes. All of the food was outstanding. Be sure to try their quesadilla dip. Yummy! I also loved their drink called the "Swirl" which was part frozen margarita and part Sangria. Delicious! The staff was attentive, the ambience comfortable and pricing just right.... More
