Bad Bean Baja Grill

Latin inspired cuisine

The Bad Bean Baja Grill menu doesn’t change much. You don’t mess with success after all, and people would riot if they couldn’t get their Giant Cali Burrito or favorite taco. The consistency works too, because the ever-changing and creative daily specials bring a fresh, fun flair to the offerings.

All the food at Bad Bean Baja Grill is prepared using the freshest of ingredients that are sourced close to home, and each season’s flavors shine brightest in the Daily Specials. These are where the fusion of Southern and Outer Banks influences on Tex-Mex and Baja cuisine come to life. Enjoy a Baja take on Southern tomato pie in the summer, or try pork and apple in a sweet potato tamale during the winter. You can generally expect the Daily Specials at Bad Bean to include the available type of fish and shrimp, a daily taco special (like a tempura-fried Wanchese soft shell taco), a soup of the day and a seasonal take on a margarita (think: fresh Strawberry Vanilla in the summer, local Prickly Pear in fall or apple cider in the winter).
