Right on Boulevard Paseo Ixtapa...a restaurant associated with Momma Norma and Deborah (which everyone loves) but much better in our opinion. Great service, great Mexican food and two for one drinks all the time! We make sure we stop by here at least once per trip. Kinda fun location as you get to people watch everyone going up and down...

A lower priced version of Deborah's in a more street side location. Great for people watching and the occasional ball game. One drawback...if it is really hot outside, the tables inside get very hot.. My wife thinks their mango daiquiris are to die for.....and if you like your food spicy,, just ask for some really hot sauce ... Lots of... More

Our group of 5 didn't eat here but stopped to have their Sexy Coffee. I've had many types of fancy, flamed coffees over the years but truly enjoyed the drink at Chili Bean's! Making the drinks is a fun process that includes paring and orange peel that hangs down about 12 inches. Liquore is poured over the orange and it's... More

This is a great place to eat...very good food and great ambience. Every time that I've eaten or walked by here the place is full. The food is good to very good and the service is very attentive.

The atmosphere, food and service are one of the best in Ixtapa. The tortilla soup is my favorite. You won't want to miss stopping at Chili Beans plus it's really easy to find.

The location is convenient right downtown Ixtapa. The food was Ok. If you are looking for real Mexican food I'd suggest you make the drive to Zihua.. Having said that the food was safe and restaurant was clean, sometimes that's all you can ask for. Thought it was pricey for Mexico..

We have been coming to Ixtapa since 1995 and had one of the best meals we've ever had at Chili Beans. The Mexican combo was only 12 dollars and was delicious. The chicken fajitas were also very good, as were the margaritas. Highly recommend!

Been to Ixtapa many times. The Chili Bean is always on my agenda. I love to have breakfast there and watch the traffic on the street. The food is very good as is the service. Deb keeps high standards in both her restaurants. My girlfriend love the chicken tamales.
