I concur with everything others are saying here. I will add that pinchos stands along the north beach heading into San Juan are as common as hot dog stands on the midway, only the big skewers of spicy, juicy chicken are incredibly good. Add a couple of icy cold beers and sit at the outdoor picnic tables, watching the world... More

What else can I say? Drive to the kioskos and start eating - you won't regret it. Dine on the beach behind them or pay four bucks for the nicer private beach just up the road with facilities.

Barbecue by the ocean - wow! This was the best chicken skewer we've had outside home. They have a grill under a tent just across the street from where the biobay tour guys are. Just $3 for a chicken or fish kabob stick - well marinated, and tender. Try the spicy variety - it is a bit hot but the... More

The only vendor selling food where the biobay lagoon tours launch. We enjoyed the meal immensely. Choose from chicken or pork kabobs, with rice and beans,grilled bread, and veggies. Adult and non alcoholic beverages available. Very reasonably priced. $3 per kabob, our family of four had 6 kabobs and the other fixings and soda for about $30.

I'm trusting that this review is for the skewer tent by the bio-luminescent bay kayaking location at Las Croabas. Two portions of grilled BBQ chicken skewers and a cup of freshly made pina colada with rum for $12 - I did not see any better deal while I was in Puerto Rico. The chicken was piping hot and juicy, and... More

the pinchos are delicious! No matter where you go to get them! Wish I had one right now! We had some on our trip across to Vieques. They were making them as we stepped off the ferry

It is just a little tent and grill beside the ocean at Seven Seas Balneario, but the pinchos are awesome. Also, all it takes is a quick introduction and Christobal (one of the owners) is telling you about all the great hidden (usually free) things to do on the east end of the island. If you want great pinchos, new... More
