Gloria's Cafe is a charming and affordable eatery serving a mix of Mexican and Salvadorian fare. It welcomes one with a pleasantly lit, colorful interior, supremely friendly service and – according to many – some of the best pupusas in town. Other "must try" are the carne adobada and plantains. The menu features a lot of seafood options, including the impressive Seven Seas Soup with fish, crab, shrimp, calamari, octopus, and scallops.

Great food! Atmosphere is not really my taste, but you can pretty much order a variety of things and not go wrong.

USED TO be a regular (PAST TENSE) – If it wasn't for their food, I would give it zero or negative stars. We live around the corner from this place and prior to their remodel we would come here on weeknights when we didn't feel like cooking and wanted some awesome El Salvadoran food. Never have gone wrong with the food, service is not speedy but it's a mom and pop hole in the wall so we make allowances. Until this time... We got there after the dining room had filled up, there were two couples ahead of us in line. It took us 25 minutes to get a table and another 45 minutes later we still didn't have our food even though they had taken our order while we waited to "speed things up." after over an hour of waiting at the table and the server hadn't come back after we asked him to check on our food we got up to go pay. right as that happened he walks out with just my plate of food. the cashier askes us if we want to pack up our food so we thought why not might as well. 5 minutes later our food still isn't out. probably because my husbands plate wasn't ready yet. So after 2 hours we walk back to our apartment food in hand with a bill close to 40 bucks (they said they were sorry but didn't sound like they meant it or offered to discount our drinks while we had a hour plus wait for our food) only to discover no tortillas. It was the most expensive time consuming "take out" we ever ordered. It ruined our Sunday date night. Getting featured on Diners Drive Ins and Dives was probably a blessing and a curse. Lots of new customers but as a FORMER regular, I would never go back or endorse this place.

GREAT food! – After seeing a recent episode of Diners,Drive-ins and Dives while visiting California, we decided to go here to eat the next day while out sight-seeing. It was very busy and very crowded, if we had not seen it reviewed by Guy, we too may not have stopped......but don't let the location and size fool you. The food was great, the staff was wonderful, though very,very busy and once you are inside, it is very charming. If you are near here, you must go in and eat, you won't be disappointed.

Topnotch! – Had dinner here w/recent L.A. visit, after a Google search. From the outside, we probably would've never gone in but glad we did. Topnotch service, excellent food, friendly staff. If you're in L.A., eat @ Gloria's!

The whole enchilada... – "Hello, my friends, what can I get for you this evening," the server intones with a genuine smile. He's gentle, disarming and eager to ensure that every diner's evening at the Culver City Mexican/Salvadorian restaurant is a memorable experience. It's refreshing to see a family-owned-and-operated local business with such heart -- especially in a dingy strip mall on Venice Blvd. The personal service, however, is just one reason to stop in for a pitcher of sangria and order of pupusas. Gloria's offers more than warm smiles and knock-out pork and cheese (revuleta) pupusas. The rest of the expansive menu is just as compelling -- in particular the carne adobado and the epic sopa de 7 mares which truly is "the king of soups." The best part? One doesn't have to be a king to afford it.

Go-to comfort food...a stellar kitchen. I have yet to have a bad meal at Gloria's...the pork adobada is spectacular, the sopes are tasty, and my wife swears by the soup. I like the family feel to the terms of good comfort food, Gloria's is just terrific. The tables and booths are a little uncomfortable, but the kitchen is stellar. Keep it up, Gloria!
