We come to Bellingham 4 or 5 times a year, and on occasion dine at this restaurant, as we thought the food was quite good. We were there two weeks ago, and it was pretty awful. The food was bland, served on the cold side and just not what we recalled from our last visit to that restaurant two or... More

My husband and I wanted to try out a new restaurant in the area, and found that this place had pretty good ratings. When we went in, the smell hit us hard and our mouths instantly watered :) Delicious authentic Mexican cuisine and by far the best we've had in the area!

I finally got to check out La Gloria & was not disappointed. They have a grocery store & what looks like their own bakery so they probably make most things on site. The sign of a good Mexican restaurant is usually the chips & salsa. Both looked like they were authentic and not from a jar or bag of chips.... More

My wife and I haven't been since March 2014 and we were very surprised. We were surprised that the food is even better than our last visit. I had an authentic Goat Stew and my buddy had an Enchilada. The flavours, the size of the portions and the laid back atmosphere make La Gloria's the best!

Came here last weekend for a quick lunch... The restaurant is right next door to my dry cleaner, so it was convenient to come here. The place was packed, so I ended up sitting at the same booth with someone who looked like an escaped prisoner. I ordered the Carne Asada with flour tortillas. The beef was nice and charred,...

Visited La Gloria with four kids yesterday for lunch. Sadly we were disappointed this time around. Tortillas seemed stale; burritos luke warm. Sauce on the burritos different than last two visits. Quesadilla was ordered with chicken, but came with pork. No carnitas or chile relleno. Disappointed.

This restaurant is more of a 'hole in the wall' as other reviewers have described it, but the food is fresh & hand made (corn tortillas). When we were there the restaurant had many Spanish speakers and Mexican customers. The adjoining Mexican Market is filled with Mexican soft drinks, beer, sweets, canned goods, cheese, a butcher, homemade tortillas, you name... More

Everything was authentic [I could tell my the actual mexican dishes listed]. I do wish their menu was completely Mexican rather then going off what they do best. I've had good Mexican food North of Mexico.. this one is the best. The only error I made was not researching the portion sizes and having TOO much food. This gringa got... More

This is the most authentic traditional Mexican food we've found in the region and a forced stop every time we drive trough town. Very good food considering the difference in ingredient availability and choice compared to Mexico or to other southernmost states (like California). Our favorites include the Birria (goat stew), Menudo (Beef tripe soup) and the Chile Verde (pork... More

This is one of those 'hole in the wall' discoveries that one hopes to find in any new destination. Good variety! Had the chicken fajitas & was excellent!! The fresh corn tortillas were amazing (my son doesn't generally like corn tortillas but I had to protect my plate from him). The rice was flavorful, light & cooked right, & the... More
