My wife and I ate at Gloria's tonight. It's located in a particularly dreary looking strip mall on Venice Blvd in Culver City...but the food is great. Years ago, Gloria 's used to operate from a popular purple stand near Olympic & Bundy in W LA. She cooks food as if she were cooking at home to feed her family. The tamales (particularly the green corn and the pepper/cheese) are the best I've ever had. And the incredibly tender pork in a tangy/spicy red sauce is superb. Fajitas are terrific. Gloria's sons are usually working at the restaurant, too, and dining there always has a warm, friendly family feeling. Prices are VERY reasonable...in the $8-15 range for pretty much every diner.
