Amazing!

This restaurant was simply amazing. The atmosphere is casual and laid back. The food is not your typical tex-mex. This was a stop on a restaurant tour I was on and I'm so glad it was. We were served fresh guacamole, house made salsa and queso dip with chips, then a fantastic vanilla peach... read more

We have eaten at the Bad Bean once a year for the last three years. Each time it's been pleasant, well served, unique and busy! Great food in a relaxed atmosphere.

The best pork belly taco ever! It's not even on the menu but divine (and I'm not even a pork eater!). And the vanilla peach margarita was terrific.

The Bad Bean never disappoints! Chips are always fresh and the queso is a family favorite. The Pork Belly tacos are a must try! Salads are great also. Beef Brisket anything is always good. Can't say enough about the Bean!

We stumbled upon this neat little eatery this evening by accident and we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered the nachos with pulled chicken. The black beans were underneath the chips and the chips were well covered with queso cheese with the distribution of cheese just perfect. The surprise with this dish was the pickled red onion on the nachos. The... More

The hot salsa gave me the hiccups. Grilled tofu is a good option for vegetarians. Surprisingly good draft beer selection.

I was recently here with a large group for dinner. We had meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans in our group and everyone was able to find something delicious to eat. It was so good we went back for lunch a few days later!

We came here for dinner at the referral of a local and she was right...it is a wonderful restaurant. I HIGHLY recommend the goat cheese and mushroom Quesadilla...one of the best things I have ever eaten. My father in law had steak and thought it was great and my very larg portions husband had the pork belly taco, which he... More

Great tacos and Cuban style sandwiches in a small, out-of-the-way strip shopping center. You gotta look got it. Food, service, and prices are very good. Very plain setting, nothing fancy about the place, but well worth a visit. I think you will like it.
