Located on that stretch of Venice Blvd. in Culver City where the traffic seems to be eternal, Gloria’s is a casual, family-run spot that’s been serving Mexican/Latin American staples for almost four decades. While you can’t really go wrong with anything here, we tend to stick to “Ms. Gloria’s Specialties.” and in particular, the carne adobada. This massive plate of baked pork in a tangy, tomato-based adobada sauce is the perfect excuse to pull over while you wait for traffic to die down.
