Wyndham-Rio Mar, complex- suggestions for restaurants

We are heading to Rio Grande Thursday, 1/12.

We have 3 college aged kids with my husband and I.

Suggestions for restaurants?

Also, SUNDAY 1/17 the BALTIMORE RAVENS have a play-off

game. Any suggestions on where we can go to watch the game?

Any sports bars in the area, not just a place with 1-TV? We are huge Ravens fans and want to wear our purple and watch the game on

a big tv.

I'm assuming you are renting a car. I believe you can watch the game at Brass Cactus, also food is pretty good.

The restaurants in the hotel are pricey as you might expect. Palios, the Italian restaurant is really pretty good. Marbella, the main restaurant, has the ambiance and cuisine of a high school cafeteria.

For breakfast, Antijitos at the bottom of the hill going down to Rt 3 is a good choice and value. I would highly recommend exploring the Kioskos, which is a row of about 40 eating / drinking spots on Rt 3 about 1-2 miles east of the turn to get to Rio Mar. Don't be put off by the appearance, some of the best rated restaurants on the island are there. Ay Bonito is a must do (rated in TA among the top 5 in PR), Ceviche Hut, Tapas 13, and Burger Shack are great. Food Place (a NY style Deli) is another good breakfast option. The Kioskos are generally very reasonably prices.

I second Dian's recommendation for the Brass Cactus. They have the best baby back ribs on the island.

These are nice suggestions, except for Antojitos. I went there twice ih the summer. The first time for breakfast, the service was lousy ( 2 x wrong order) Coffee luke warm, no flavor. and very slow. Took for ever to get Waiters attention. Well, I thought maybe just a bad day, since I had seen nice reviews on TA. So we went a few day´s later, same terrible service.I heard Pasta & Pueblo is great, biut did not go

Isn't there a big sports bar right in downtown Luquillo overlooking La Pared beach...I forget the name...Guava's maybe...I never went in but it looked like a big sports bar to me? Brass Cactus is a very good suggestion.

Other than sports bar Pasta Y Pueblo for dinner is my favorite. I also didn't care for Antojitos.

I had great cheap breakfasts and lunches at El Flamboyan which is pretty much next door to Brass Cactus.

Guava's is the sport bar overlooking La Pared Beach. It is a nice spot.
