It’s been a long four years since we have last visited and reviewed Restaurante Usuloteco. On that visit, it was all very well received by all those who joined for that particular dining adventure.
Earlier in 2016, Restaurante Usuloteco moved to a new building that would make them more visible and accessible to better traffic. They spent more than a decade at their previous location and now can be found at 2265 S. Seneca.

Now that Usuloteco is not off the beaten path anymore. People can now drive down a major road and stop by on a whim wondering what this restaurant is…..and they should.
Their new building is more spacious and allows for more seating as well.
If you’re wondering about food quality changing with a new spot, don’t be. It’s still the same wonderful food that Usuloteco fans have come to grow and love.
For those that haven’t been there before, you’re in for a treat. They offer some of the most authentic Salvadoran food in town. Their main specialty that everybody should get at least once is the pupusa. A pupusa is a corn cake filled with meat and cheeses; you then top it off with salsa and cabbage slaw. I’m salivating just typing all of that out.
Another treat worth trying is their tamale. It’s a different style tamale than what you would expect from a Mexican restaurant. It’s not so dry and has a “wetter” texture if that makes sense.
Their main entrees can be a bit pricier if you’re just looking for a simple lunch. This is certainly a type of restaurant that could benefit from a lunch menu.
This is one of those restaurants long time foodies in Wichita know about but one that isn’t talked about much with the casual diner but it should be.
Here’s a copy of their menu:
