Visited this place for a business lunch and was amazed by everything about this restaurant! Centrally located in the heart of Dallas and corporate centers, enclosed in an affluent dinning and entertainment area this restaurant offers a delightful decor, comfortable environment and elegant ambience. Great selection of Tex Mex food options with an extensive bar! Absolutely fantastic for business dinning!

We had 2 Mojitos....they were wonderful. The Rellena shrimp which was 2 meals for me because I had 2 servings of the black beans, they were creamy and delightful. The Carne asada steak was very tender and is calling me back!

I experienced an awesome business lunch on their very nice patio, this isn't your average Mexican food, this is a whole other level of Latin Cuisine. Very clean and professional environment.

used to go to the original Gloria's and always enjoyed it so we decided to visit it the new location a few blocks away. The décor is marvelous and the menu has changed somewhat but the food is still very good and the black bean soup muy bien!

Went with a group of over 12 family members for brunch/lunch on a Saturday. Drinks were outstanding and included margaritas, bloody marys and various beers. Our entrees included some breakfast items, steaks, shrimp, seafood, tacos, enchillades and more. Everyone was very happy with their food and the service was attentive and friendly. Will return.

Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Gloria's! The Addison location is my preferred spot (especially since their beautiful renovations) but they are all fantastic! From the cocktails to the desserts, it's always a wonderful experience. If you're bored with Tex-Mex, then Gloria's will fix that since they are definitely NOT Tex-Mex . . . Something very special!

This is solid Tex-Mex fare. Their complimentary salsa and black bean dip are excellent. The margaritas look small, but pack a punch with great flavor. On my last visit, my server made a to-go cup of my favorite soda without being asked, which was a welcomed treat. Also, the interior is gorgeous! Great place for Latin cuisine.

I love this place!! I love the brunch and I love the mojitos, they are the BEST in all of Dallas!!!! I hate that they don't have happy hour on Friday's at the Addison location but everything else is so good.

Gloria and Jose Fuentes were seventeen years old when they arrived to the United States in 1978. Like many other young Salvadorians, they were filled with hope - longing for a better life than what they were experiencing in a cruel and intense civil war, and civil chaos which lasted many years (decades) in El Salvador. Without knowing each other, Gloria and Jose settled in Houston, Texas and faced the precarious existence and survival difficulties of undocumented immigrants for some time. Now we're cookin' Fatefully, love created a miracle when they met and moved to Dallas to work with Gloria's sister at a Salvadorian restaurant, which her sister owned in Oak Cliff. A year later passed, and Gloria's sister gave up on the restaurant and Gloria and Jose chose to take over. Despite all the obstacles, and showing amazing resilience and a persistent work ethic, their life was beginning to change for the best. Playing an entrepreneurial role - with no previous knowledge - they registered the assumed Gloria's name before the Dallas County Clerk on April 15, 1986. A few months later they became legal U.S. Residents under the amnesty provisions of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Under Jose and Gloria's management, the little Salvadorian restaurant became distinguished for their tasty food. It was so full of flavor that an undercover critic of the Dallas Morning News gave them a very positive review. The next day there was a considerable line of Anglo clients waiting under the summer sun of Dallas, for an opportunity to indulge in the new and delicious dishes. Even William "Bill" Clements, Jr., The Governor of Texas at the time, was one of those curious customers. Gloria's growth has been a constant ever since then. Now boasting 15 Texas locations, the restaurant still serves the same delicious Latin cuisine that has been satifying hungry Texans for over 25 years.
