Visited Bad Bean in July 2011, everything is made in their kitchen fresh, salsa and guac are awesome. My friend had a wonderful fish taco, while my chicken quesedilla was awesome. The staff was very friendly, helpful and attentive, which is difficult to find these days!

The food wasn't bad. The service could have been alot better. It took 15 minutes to have someone to come to our table and ask what we would like to drink. I had to complain to the hostess to get service. On top of it all, the bar tender (who was on the opposite side of the restaurant) acted more like our waitress then the one we had.

For years we have been going to Bad Bean in Corolla. Well, this year we couldn't get a house in that area and settled for Nags Head. What did we find? BAD BEAN opened in KDH!

We ordered take out and received our usual EXCELLENT Mexican food.

Food:
Queso & chips - Solid as usual (my 8yr old son destroyed a whole order himself).
Beef Burrito - Loved it. NOTE: The beef is "brisket" style, not ground.
Fish taco's - My wife loves them here. They are Mahi fish taco's I believe and excellent.
Chicken tacos - My daughter loves them, no complaints, which as a parent is priceless.

It is strange to see a REAL restaurant attached to Bad Bean. Up in Corolla we are used to the ala-carte (order, get your own soda, etc) style. But the food remained excellent and the prices were solid for the area.

Our first visit to Bad Bean in Kill Devil Hills definitely won't be our last! The food was top-notch with great flavors, freshness and excellent selection. We love to try local restaurants when traveling instead of the same boring chains. This place is the best!
