Chicken burrito is huge and delicious. Cuban w/pulled pork was also delicious, even the fries are above par. Pineapple margarita is the best I've ever had. Service is very good/friendly greeter and server. Restaurant is clean and cheerfully decorated. Would highly recommend.

The people at Bad Bean are really sweet and their food is delicious! The place is completely casual and they also have some excellent craft beers on tap. I ordered the Havana sandwich on their recommendation and it did not disappoint. Really fabulous.
