Puerto Rico - La Concha - Anything good on the beach?

Hey all! We're headed to PR this month and staying at El Convento. We will be using their beach privilages at La Concha resort for several days.

We're looking for some good lunch options within walking distance. I've already got Orozco for one option, but I'm hoping to hear some good things about food on the beach? Someone on this board noted that there are fried food vendors right on the beach? I'm having visions of laying in a lounge chair with some porky-fried-yumminess or fresh fish and a cold beer. Please give me good news!

    I know this doesn't really answer your question, but if you're staying at the El Convento, you need to check out the restaurant on the second floor there - El Picoteo. It's not on the beach but it's great food, small plates / tapas. One of my favorites.
