While owner Gloria Rubio is Salvadoran, she certainly knows she's in the Lone Star State and knows that most of us have a special place in our stomachs for Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes. That's why the menu here is split pretty much down the middle between the foods of her Central American homeland and local favorites. There is even an all-inclusive section named Salvatex Combinations that includes fusion platters such as carne de res asada Salvatex (tender grilled steak with chimichurri, an enchilada and black beans with rice). Of course, if you want a burrito, weighty enchiladas or crispy tacos, Gloria's got you covered -- in yellow cheese and heavy sauces -- even though folks really come here for the Salvadoran selections, like lechon asado with plantains and yucca.
