Very good breakfast

Went here for breakfast and it was very good. Service was great. Not sure the waitresses name, but she helped one in our group go to the pharmacy next door to get some medication. Very nice group of employees here.

We have been to Deborah's Chili Beans many times (same owner as Momma Norma and Deborah's) and they always have great food and service. They used to have small lobster tails but they were not on the menu. So I asked and they made them for me and they were wonderful! We will visit them again on our next trip.

It was bland and boring. We heard great reviews and got blah. It was ok, but that's it. Won't return. Nothing authentic or great.

Grabbed a lunch here. Had their top burger loaded with fried onions, mushrooms, cheese, BBQ sauce and a spread or guacamole. So good. FYI you just might OD on the pica de gallo and chips while you wait. Not because it takes to long... Just because it's so good.

My husband is an early raiser and is often in search of good coffee first thing in the morning. Unable to get coffee in our hotel, he walked across the street and found Deborah's Chili Beans. 30 mins later and amped up on caffeine, I heard all about how great the coffee was thru my travel weary haze. He visited... More

The restaurant looks innocuous; however, do not be fooled! Easily the best meal(s) we have had and by far the best service as well. Edgardo and his team are welcoming and wonderful - they brighten our trip. We always make a point of going to Chili Beans because of them and the fabulous, fresh food!
