4 Valentine's Day Tips from Gloria's Latin Cuisine

Love is in the air! Valentine's Day is one of our favorite holidays. There's something so wonderful about seeing couples at Gloria's during this holiday. Some have been together ages, while others may be spending their first Valentine's together. There's even friends that come in groups with one another to enjoy the day as a group. Regardless of whichever category you fall into, you can be sure we are thrilled to see you! Of course, since the holiday is so busy and we offer some of the best Latin food in Dallas, Austin and Houston, we wanted to leave you with a few tips to make your Valentine's Day experience as wonderful as possible.

Valentine's Day Tip 1: Enjoy a drink at the bar while you wait

There's no doubt about it, this day can sometimes be busy and due to the high volume we have, we unfortunately don't take reservations. However, this doesn't mean we don't love you. Don't think of it as a wait, think of it as a time to get to know your date a little better or to have some great conversation with one another. If you're 21 or over, you can make your way to the bar and grab one a margarita, mojito, cold beer or a glass of wine while you wait. If you're underage you obviously can't have a drink, but it's a perfect chance to sit and talk. We promise the time will go by faster as we do our best to take care of every single one of you.

Valentines Day Tip 2: Giftcards and E-cards

If you're looking to give a giftcard as a gift and visit us a later date, the last day to order physical gift cards to have them delivered by Valentine's Day is on 2/11/15 at 3 PM. However, you can order an ecard at any time and have it printed right up. If you need to order a giftcard or ecard, just visit our giftcard page and order yours today!

Pro Tip for Egiftcards: Don't forget to check your junk/spam filter after ordering your eGiftcard. Every once in a while, these get caught in a filter, depending on your preferences. Better safe than sorry!

Valentine's Day Tip 3: Proper cell phone usage

We love when you take pics of each other and your food. In fact, we have an entire media page set up that displays your pics. So feel free to take a pic together, use #GloriasLatinCuisine and tag us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. However, don't spend too much time on your phone other than that. Remember, the night is about the time you spend together, not on the time you spend texting or playing Peggle Blast. This one is just some great info for you love birds.

Valentine's Day Tip 4: We've got the meal you crave, so order away

From our traditional salvadorian favorites, to tex-mex, to even a small menu of gluten free and vegetarian options, we've got you in mind. (Pro tip: ask your server to see the menu of gluten free and vegetarian options, as it's not on our regular menu).There's really something for everyone at Gloria's. Be sure you save room for dessert as well. Our tres leches cake or delicia a la Gloria is perfect for the occasion!

With that in mind, Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
