Salvadorian

With a Twist

At Gloria’s, it’s always been about fresh ingredients, creative recipes and a commitment to our customers. Thank you for being a part of our story..

01

Humble Beginnings

It all started in 1978. Before fate brought them together, Gloria and Jose Fuentes each decided to leave behind the civil unrest in their home country of El Salvador and seek out a better life in the southern United States.

02

A Passionate Partnership

Gloria and Jose found more than just opportunities at their new homes in Houston—they found each other. And so began a passionate partnership that would forever change the culinary scene in the great state of Texas.

03

An Authentic Opportunity

In love and inspired, the two moved to Dallas where they worked at a small Salvadorian eatery in Oak Cliff owned by Gloria’s sister. A year later, her sister gave up on the restaurant, and despite having no previous business experience, Gloria and Jose stepped up, seizing the opportunity to turn their love of Salvadorian cuisine and cooking into a life-long career.
