785 Sunset Boulevard
Corolla, NC 27927

The Bad Bean Taqueria, located in Corolla, Outer Banks was inspired by the many taquerias that are scattered along the Pacific Coast from Northern California to the tip of Baja.
Our goal is to provide fresh, simple ingredients prepared from scratch using authentic flavors and techniques that define true Mexican cuisine. We use dried Mexican peppers such as Gaujillos, Pasillas, Ancho, Chipotles as well as a variety of fresh peppers and spices that add just the right punch of flavor. Be sure to try the Bad Bean fresh fish tacos using local Mahi-Mahi pan seared, topped with Yucatan jicima slaw, and drizzled with our housemade Habanero “Shocker” Sauce. For guacamole lovers it’s the real deal- no fillers, just flavor!!! Our chips are hand cut from yellow corn tortillas and fried fresh daily. Choose from four delicious house salsas to dip your chips or top your favorite taco. Our burritos which are wrapped in a huge 14-inch tortilla shell will conquer the heartiest of appetites. The Bad Bean serves a large ion of Mexican beer and don't miss the BAD BEAN MARGARITA...made with our own house-blended mix.
We would love to hear from old and new customers as we always listen to your feedback with a desire to serve you only the best. Please e-mail comments to Come and enjoy the family friendly atmosphere along with the flavors and textures of Mexican cuisine at the Bad Bean Taqueria. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you on your visit to Corolla, Outer Banks and hope to see you again soon.

Remember - “The only good bean is a Bad Bean.”

Thank you.

Good food, no table service, not a great atmosphere but a good place to grab lunch with the kids.

We had lunch at Bad Beab twice during our 2012 trip. The kids LOVED the queso dip! I had a great shrimp taco and the guacamole was a real treat as well. My husband opted for the (GIANT!) burrito and loved it. Great beer selections too! One of our favorite places in Corolla to grab a quick meal.

Ate here last week - Nothing fancy, but excellent shrimp and fish tacos as well as corn chips and salsa - only had the medium hot salsa and it was very good. Great margarita as well!
