In El Salvador they eat pretty much the same things we do in the U.S.. In fact, you will find most of our fast food and moderate priced sit down restaraunts in the country. If you are looking for local food then there are restaraunts that serve pupusas. These are a thick corn tortilla and it can be stuffed with meat or cheese. The country has a great deal of Spanish influence so you will find tamales, yuca, and plantains along with rice.
