Bad Bean Baja Grill for Every Taste
The menu at Bad Bean Baja Grill has something for every eater. Take your pick of protein from local fish and shrimp, ancho-braised brisket, shredded barbacoa, achiote-roasted chicken and grilled skirt steak. Vegans, vegetarians and those with gluten-free restrictions will have no problem eating and enjoying their experience at the Bad Bean. Various salads, grilled tofu, vegan rice and beans, and house-made hummus can be combined for a delicious and healthy meal. From carnivores to vegans, no one leaves this Kitty Hawk restaurant hungry.
Everything – food, sauce, moles, marinades, dips – is made in house, and the chefs take pride in using only freshest of ingredients. The crispy chips are fried that day and arrive at the table still warm, and the homemade salsas burst with robust flavor. You won't find your typical bottled hot sauce on the tables, either. They create and rotate their house-fermented hot sauces on a regular basis. All of their mixers are made here too, and people like to stock up on the hot sauces, salsas, house margarita and house Bloody Mary mixes before leaving the Kitty Hawk restaurant. Speaking of drinks, take a peek at their selection of mojitos and margaritas, including featured concoctions that change each day. They also serve wine and beers by the bottle, and the craft beers on tap rotate regularly.
