We always enjoy the food here and for my daughter and myself we usually split the chicken enchiladas with sour cream and the chips and dips are complimentary and delicious. We feel the food is worth the prices and the staff and service have always...More

My husband and I were in town for 5 days and ate here twice. The papusas w/slaw was wonderful. The chicken/potato tamales steamed in banana leaves were incredible. The chips, salsa, hot bean dip are a nice touch. Highly recommend!

Many don't know this restaurant is somewhat "hidden" in the middle of an upscale shopping center but worth the trip. Great food, wonderful drinks, and one of the least expensive quality places around.

Recently a couple moved here from Puerto Rico. I took them here and the black bean soup did not miss the market. I had the grilled quail and was perfect. Fried plantains was a great treat.

Description
Humble Beginnings 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.
