Vanilla flan is made in-house and was a great wrap to the meal. It was light, fluffy and delicious, could have ordered 2.

Gloria's Restaurant serves Latin-American food in a family style environment. The food is a blend of Mexican, TexMex and Salvadoran cuisines. Gloria’s is a Texas chain with 15 current restaurants mostly in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and a few locations in Austin and Houston. Food and drink prices are about average but taste and quality are superior.

The Fort Worth restaurant is located in the trendy retro Montgomery Plaza. It was formerly a Montgomery Ward store built in a 1920s Art Deco style, and is now a mixed use development with retailers and condos. Gloria’s has a large terrace area with seating. The dining room has an “L” shape with most of the dining room to the left of the entrance and a smaller alcove to the right. A bar is along the back wall.

A late lunch on a Saturday afternoon worked well to avoid the lengthy wait that is common on Friday and Saturday nights. The waitress advised spending a few extra bucks to get top shelf tequila for a margarita on the rocks and it was money well spent. Every sip was liquid gold. A follow-up chicken soup was packed with fresh vegetables and had a rich delicious broth. The tamales appetizer was on the small side, but had a distinctive pleasing taste; the mashed chicken and potatoes blended well together. The vegetarian fajita entree included some non-traditional ingredients such as snow peas and mushrooms, but the portion was good sized and the taste was enjoyable. In particular, the avocado sauce and bean sauce (which was served hot) really enriched the dish. An annoyance though was being charged extra for more avocado sauce and a small portion at that. Save room for dessert, especially for the vanilla flan. It is made in-house and every mouthful was something to savor, a light, spongy, and sweet vanilla taste that was superb. The service was attentive, polite and professional and eating at Gloria’s was a pleasure. If Latin American food is on your agenda, Gloria’s should be on your road map.
