food was good too! chunky guac, just like I like it. No lettuce filling, just a bowl of chunks of avocado in all its glory. I tried the bean and cheese tostada and it was totally filling! I also ordered a cheese quesadilla and couldn't finish it ! super tasty. service with a smile. why i keep coming back.....

10 minutes from the air port - kids can stretch their legs, grown ups can have a great margarita & ceviche & everyone will be so happy to be here!

For a highly rated restaurant the food just did not meet expectations. The tacos were tasteless. The tortillas were tough. The beans had Big globs of fat. The rice had no flavor. On the positive side the guacamole was good.

Stopped by to grab a bite since I was staying in Hotel Emma. Loved the ambience so much that came back the next day with my nephew to eat tacos. They were delicious! Try Tacos al Pastor.

Food was good to very good. Service at the bar (45 minute wait) and at the table were excellent. Beautiful building and setting on the Riverwalk. Drinks were very pricey and filled with ice, mostly. Good, but not at $13. Woman next to me at the bar order 4 drinks and paid $76. Small tacos were nice portions and the... More

A family friendly place with inside and outside seating... plenty of room for kids to run and play... friendly workers and San Antonio knowledgeable crew... beer is always cold. The food is "authentic Mexican food".

I came to La Gloria's looking for a great drink, a beautiful and fun ambience, and delicious authentic Mexican street food. I got 1 out of the 3. The restaurant itself is gorgeous. Scenic views and excellent decor! It has a very lively vibe despite being predominantly filled with yuppies. Beyond that, everything else barely rises above 'meh'. The only... More

Very pricey, so, so food. We were in San Antonio for Air Force graduation and was looking for authentic Mexican and this was not the place. I think the place was for people to be seen and meet other than enjoy original Mexican food. Hard to find and almost no parking. This place was recommended by a friend and he... More

This place is located at the Pearl Brewery area where you can take a water taxi all the way to the Riverwalk. The restaurant itself is nothing fancy but they do serve good Mexican food. For those people who only know tacos and enchiladas, there are other Mexican dishes worth trying like the Puerco chile molcajete, For dessert try their... More
