Gloria’s Restaurants Announce New El Salvador Dishes

El Salvador is the smallest, yet most densely populated country in Central America. It is a small country with a culture heavily influenced by Spanish Europeans, which explains the unique flavors of popular Salvadorian dishes. Texas' warm weather has reminded us of the beautiful tropical weather of El Salvador and has inspired us to create two new flavorful dishes. Try our Huachinango Sarteneado, a pan seared red snapper or our Costa del Sol Huachinango, a chili rubbed red snapper. Both dishes are served with a corn salsa, sautéed in a white wine garlic sauce, and set on a bed of rice with asparagus spears.

Gloria's Uptown Restaurant guests, have you tried our Cucumber Mojito exclusive to our Uptown location? Stop by and give it a taste and let us know what you think! We're dying to know, how long have you been going to Gloria's and why do you keep coming back? 

Gloria’s is a Salvadorian restaurant known and distinguished for our tasty Latin American Food. Want to learn more about Gloria’s? Visit and take a look at their delicious Salvadorian Menu

Gloria's Restaurants To Open In Houston's Midtown

Gloria’s Restaurants will soon be leaving for Houston to open its newest location in Midtown.  This is an exciting day for owners Jose and Gloria Fuentes because Houston is where they originally met after fleeing El Salvador during its civil war in the late 70’s.  They are currently in talks with Bruce Molzan one of the current owners of the historic Ruggles Grill which is located on the 900 block of Westheimer.  If all goes as planned Jose and Gloria will demolish the 40 year old 26,000 sq. ft. Ruggles Grill to build a new 7,500 sq. ft. restaurant. This location is to be the first of 4 locations that will be opening in the greater Houston area.  They also plan on opening additional locations in Sugar Land, The Woodlands, and West University.   “Houston is a huge international market, and the competition is going to be very tough, but we will succeed there,” said Fuentes.  Gloria’s just recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and has 12 locations in the DFW area and one in Austin.
