Need eating ideas for two of our day trips

Last lingering question I have. We have two separate daytrips planned which take us to areas where I'm not sure of the food situations. Packing sandwiches is an option, but not if we don't have to. If anyone can provide specific recommendations for either of these areas, great. Otherwise, I'd just like an idea of what kind of food places are in the areas or on the way there and where to look for them. Both trips will be kind of grimy, so we'll want really casual. Starting point for both trips is Luquillo.

Orocovis. We're visiting Toro Verde. I think we pass by San Juan during the drive. Is there anything beyond San Juan that's casual but decent?

Arecibo. Acutally, Trip Advisor does list a few restaurants for this town, but do you know of anything that's really casual, but good? We'll be dirty, hot and tired from this trip. Nobody will want us in their 5- (or even 4- or 3-) star restaurants!

Orocovis is famous for the fresh sausages made there , in Spanish, "Longanizas" . You should try Restaurant La Sombra on Road #156, km. 2.8 (road from Barranquitas to Orocovis) makes outstanding "arroz con longaniza" (rice with sausages) (telephone: 787-867-3583)

There is a German restaurant, Casa Bavaria, on the way to Toro Verde that gets good reviews.

We like to stop at a panadaria and get sandwiches. They have all types- usually hot and cold made fresh on delicious bread. And cheap too! There is one right toward the first few miles on RT 681 on the north side of the street. We get it to go and picnic on the beach.
