Gloria’s More than a Margarita

Sep 30, 2014 04:24PM ● Published by Dia

Latin Cuisine restaurant has perfected the margarita, serving up salt-rimmed glasses that can 

solve even the biggest of problems. But it’s not just the drinks that have made Gloria’s a North Texas favorite for more than 25 years — it’s also the wide selection of Salvadorian-inspired brunch, lunch and dinner entrees. One of 15 restaurants state-wide, Gloria’s Colleyville location draws dutifully from the humble beginnings of El Salvadorian natives Gloria Rubio and Jose Fuentes. The restaurant’s story begins in 1986, the same year the duo was granted U.S. citizenship. After taking over her sister’s restaurant in Oak Cliff, she legally changed the name to Gloria’s, and from there the legend was born.

A meal at Gloria’s begins simply enough. Hungry patrons are greeted by a contemporary, upscale design, paired with the restaurant’s signature black bean dip, salsa and chips. Smart diners will nosh on the irresistible ceviche, as they peruse the menu offering fresh fish, crispy tacos and authentic enchiladas. And that’s when the challenge begins. From familiar Tex-Mex dishes like Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas to “Salvatex Combinations” such as Chilie Relleno, deciding which dish you want to try can be tough. For brunch lovers, savory omelets, breakfast tacos, breakfast burritos and Mexican specialties such as Huevos con Carne (scrambled eggs with brisket, served with pinto beans and guacamole salad) beckon. Stop in for lunch and enjoy Ceviche Tostados, featuring a unique combination of orange roughy, scallops and shrimp, or go classic with fajitas for dinner. Just don’t forget to save room for dessert, as sweet creations like flan and tres leches tempt you to enjoy just one more bite. And why shouldn’t you? After all, Gloria would want you to.
