We went there never having had El Salvadoran food before and we all loved what we had. I had Nancy’s Favorite which was a papusa and a tamale. Both delicious. Even the sides that came with it black beans and rice and puréed black beans...were delicious. My friend had their soft shell shrimp tacos with pinto beans and rice as her side and she loved her food as well. The black bean purée that came with the salsa and chips before our food was also very tasty.More

Nothing to brag about, but it is comfortable and service is more than acceptable. But in the end it's just another Tex-Mex (or Tex-Salvadoran) food. Clean restaurant, prompt service, not too expensive though not cheap. I will probably be back.

While visiting Arlington, some of our relatives took us to Gloria's and it met our high expectations. The food was fantastic as well as the service. The restaurant was crowded and loud. If you want quiet dining, get their takeout. It was the only thing...about our experience that wasn't top notch. I am a senior and the noise made it difficult to hear others. Still, loved the restaurant. I give it a 5 except for the background noise.More

We sat outside here and enjoyed a great meal. A little pricey ($52 for two of us), but glad we tried it. The red snapper tacos were great as well as the enchiladas. We had a margarita which was 9 bucks but very strong which...was nice. Lunch menu will save you if you come mon-fri til 5pm. We came on a Saturday so that’s why it was so much. We will definitely be back!More

We still go here for the delicious cuisine, however; we are lifetime DFW family and our reception at this particular Metroplex Gloria’s is ALWAYS uncomfortable, cool and unfriendly. Our adult children live in Arlington and for convenience we go back to this Gloria’s. This time...I was finally tired of the rude hostesses twords us and I asked her name ‘Denise’ but it is a routine attitude with Gloria’s staff, not managers there. I Guess because we are kind to all I do not just understand the general attitude here for a place that we return to once to twice a month. Kindness is mandatory for success anywhere in DFW and there are too many good restaurants to pick from to not be kind to ALL different guests not just like your staff.More

From the service to the food, amazing and not your normal. Recommend the shrimp, chicken and spicy pineapple margarita!! Kids are treated well and everyone enjoyed all they had to offer.

Nice to have fresh stir fried veggies instead of just rice and beans. Black rice, veggies in the fluffy rice. Fried plantains, large servings, decent prices on drinks with premium liquor. I like their old fashioneds with markers mark. Wonderful black bean dip and thin...crispy chips.More

I have only been here one time and I got a combination meal. It was really, really good. The only reason I don't say great is because they put veggies in the rice, which I do not like. They serve a black bean salsa with...chips and it was absolutely delicious. They serve the red salsa as well. My meal had a taco, fajita taco, chicken enchilada, rice and beans. The meal was delicious! I will return to Gloria's. Our server was also very friendly but not overly friendly, the service was fast and the food was served hot.More

Came here after work with some business associates and was pleasantly surprised by the food (cost) and the drinks. Also I really enjoyed the chips as they were thin and warm and just the right amount of sauce. Also the salsa just had the right...amount of spiciness to give it a zest of flavor.More

I had been wanting to try Gloria’s in Arlington for a while & finally got the chance last week while visiting my daughter. I ordered the chicken flautas which I’ve had at other Mexican restaurants - these were dripping with grease! I had to use...several napkins to sop up the greasy mess. The rice was delicious though. I informed the waiter about the grease & he said he would comp my check a couple of dollars...& would inform the manager. When my check arrived it was the full amount. I was disappointed & won’t be returning anytime soon.More
