Dallas Observer Readers Choose Gloria's For Best Margarita

Time and time again, our margaritas have won the adoration of many. We're more than okay with that. Our recipe is a family secret, and like all things Gloria's, it has to be ultimate perfection to be on the menu. When Gloria's first came to be, Jose Fuentes set down to create the ideal margarita and didn't rest until that had been achieved.   However, it's not just us who holds this concoction in such high regard, which is what allows us such high bragging rights.

Havana NRG + Downtown Austin + Gloria's = Great Times

 We'd just like to extend a thank you to Havana NRG, who came and brought their phenomenal Latin grooves to our downtown Austin location on July 13. The dancefloor was ablaze with some of Austin's finest - enjoying the night to some of the spiciest salsa, Cuban, bachata and more that Texas has to offer.   We'd also like to thank all of you for coming and enjoying yourselves. Austinites are a truly wonderful breed, and we're beyond thrilled to be part of the ATX scene.

Since, in a perfect world, the only time we'd spend outside would be laying by a pool, we've thought to give you a unique summer treat for keeping it both light and seasonal.
