I had the Beef Cali Burrito with guacamole and it was excellent. I sat at the bar and the service was attentive but not pushy. Great value for your money.

I and my family have been many times to Bad Bean. Never disappointed and my favorite is the burger. Just delicious and always get the variety of dips and chips. Excellent drinks and reasonable price. Most often a wait but well worth it.

Great tacos especially the chefs daily variation of pork belly tacos. Margaritas varied and great with the tacos. Lunch and dinner specials always interesting
