“Classic quality mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is the second time we've eaten there. It was better than the first. When we are missing Mexico, this is the next best thing. Breakfast is great. large portions, fresh ingredients. Second visit was for lunch. The Pozole is as good, as any I have had anywhere. The portions are huge. We had to take half of it home. Would recommend sharing one, and trying one other dish. The service is a little spotty, but who cares when you are getting such delicious food.

“ooooh, nice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

La Gloria Market

ooooh, nice. we decided on LGM after spending an uneventful day looking for deals in BLI. LGM looks very basic inside. Go to the cashier, look up at the menu, order, take a seat, and they bring it out to you. Undecided after several minutes, we ordered up LGM sampler. Comes with homemade chips and salsa. Salsa is freshly made with heat. The LGM platter serving was generous 3 taquitos, 2 flautas, 3 tacos, rice and refried beans. Flavours were genuine and fresh, not overly greasy and heavy for the deep fried taquitos and flautas. Not too spicy overpowering but I bet you could order with extra heat. The value is there for the quantity and quality. This is a destination or “to visit” and "eat at". we will return.

“Very Authentic - Unbeatable Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Great experience all around. Friendly service - fabulous food - extremely good value. Great lunch for two for under 15.00. Almost unheard of.

“Great Authentic Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Hidden within the destination shopping area of Bellingham is this terrific little Mexican Restaurant.
La Gloria offers a menu with a nice variety of creative mexican dishes. They go beyond the typical dishes that you usually see in mexican places. My wife had the Flautas Flour, which are crispy tortillas stuffed with shredded beef. I had the Chile Verde, which is pork short ribs with tomatillo sauce. Both were served with rice and beans and topped with crumbled cotija cheese. Both dishes were very delicious. The prices are very reasonable and they have a pretty good selection of beer. No margaritas though. As mentioned, this not a typical mexican place.
The restaurant is also attached to a market that offers a wide selection mexican food items and features a pretty impressive butcher.
We really enjoyed our dinner at La Gloria and will definitely eat here again.
