I'm definitely a connoisseur of Mexican and Tex-Mex food. Went here on a Wednesday night after the first 2 restaurants we wanted to go to had too long of a wait. Started with the Bad Bean Dip Sampler. Got the medium salsa which was good but a little runnier than I like. The Queso dip was good but not great.... More

A friend invited me to join her for lunch at Bad Bean Baja Grill. I was expecting some version of "the usual" Mexican restaurant fare. Their offerings were quite different and it took some time to go over the menu and pick just one thing. The guacamole was freshly made with nice chunks of ripe avocado. The blue corn chips... More

Best taco place on the OBX! Their meatball app is surprisingly delicious and spicy! Super spicy salsas! Usually easy to get into because it's tucked back in the corner of a strip mall. Great option when you don't feel like waiting for dinner!

We love late lunches here. The pork belly tacos are the best and The Havana sandwich is another specialty . Very good specialty marguerites . Tucked away in the corner of a shopping center it's well worth the trip

We decided on Mexican before departing the Outer Banks. I searched on the phone and we came upon the Bad Bean Baja Grill. My girlfriend had the Bad Bean salad, which she really enjoyed. They have an awesome chipotle lime dressing. I opted for shrimp tacos with a side of red beans and rice. That was very good as well.... More

Food was delicious and service was great. This restaurant is located in the corner of a strip mall on the east side of the highway close to MP 5.5 so it is not right on the highway, but easy to find. Food was tasty but not overly spicy. The hamburger came on a flour tortilla so you didn't fill up... More
