Come and enjoy our authentic Salvadorian flavors, starting with our home cooked meals, and the live entertainment in the weekend, featuring local and international bands. With a focus on authenticity, customer service, and uniqueness.

Founded in 1986, El Cuscatleco Restaurant has come a long way from its beginnings in Shirlington Park, South Arlington, VA. When Oscar Salinas first started his passion for food, entertainment, and pride for his native country El Salvador motivated him to recreate the family restaurant you now enjoy.

When you step inside El Cuscatleco restaurant, we transport you to El Salvador with our a friendly service, happy people, and delicious authentic food; you get the full cultural experience. This passion for sharing his enjoyable experience of El Salvador led Oscar to quit his day job and gave him the impetus to turn hard work and inspiration into a booming Restaurant. We are thrilled to share a bit of our culture with all our customers.

We hope you enjoy our products and services as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
