With its move to a remodeled fire station on Bishop @ Davis, it looks like Gloria’s, the Salva-Tex restaurant of choice in Dallas, has hit a home run. Same great food (grilled quail on my visit), same great service (you don’t befuddle the wait staff by ordering a la carte a la my wife) but with an airy and inviting upstairs dining area, upscale patios and a buzz-worthy bar, complete with the old fire pole. The downstairs patio has colorful fire pits with water fountains and comfy-looking chairs and an upstairs patio overlooks downtown. My prediction is that Gloria’s will be the primo place to watch next year’s Oak Cliff Mardi Gras parade.
