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

We have dined at this restaurant several times over the last five years. Consistently great food and service. The menu specials are great as are some of the tried and true menu items. Especially like the Cali Burrito

Went for lunch with the family including two young children. All of the food was excellent. Shrimp tacos were great! Kids both really loved the quesadillas. Even the chips and salsa were fantastic! I would have given a 5 rating, but for the seemingly disorganized hostess function. The restaurant only had 8 tables filled, but had to wait several minutes... More

Called for take out. Was told to call back in an hour because they were not doing take out. Doesn't seem like a sustainable business model to me. Called and ordered. Mahi mahi burrito...oh my bland and flavorless. Nachos as well. Clearly beans poured from a can. Not impressed. Will not return.
