We were walking along the street and noticed this bustling little restaurant. When you don't know where to go, it's always a good idea to go to the place that's busy. We had delightful drinks and excellent pork tacos. Super inexpensive!

We went there for breakfast twice and dinner once. We were very happy with the food and the service every time. For dinner they had the lobster wrapped with shrimp surrounded by bacon which had been a specialty when it was JJ's and it was still just as good. Highly recommended.

Second time we were treated rude by the owner, trust me when I say it will NEVER happen again I don't know who she thinks she is, but there are some people that need to retire, it's not like it's her first year The pie sucks as well.

This place is right across the street from the Hotels so the prices are a bit higher, but not by much. It is great to stop for a cold beverage as you wander through the big market area behind.

This is another restaurant of Deborah of Mama Norma and Deborah's. Same quality good, great garlic shrimp fixed however you want them. We get them boiled and delicious. Also good for breakfast or lunch break. On the street in central Ixtapa toward Presidente Intercontinental. Excellent liquor store next to it for soda, beer, or almost anything you want. Good selection.

After a fun day full of ATV rides, my husband and I wanted to pick up local food and take it back to our resort. We asked our cab driver to stop by a place he would eat and he recommended Deborah's Chili Beans. We didn't stay to eat because we were exhausted from our long day, but the place... More

Every time we walked by Chili Beans was packed so we had to stop by. The food was great, reasonable priced and the service was excellent. Of course the owner is great to chat with!

We've just come back from Ixtapa where we were with our whole family (8 of us) for Christmas and New Years. We landed up going to Deborah's Chili Beans THREE times - the shrimp was that good! It probably was the best coconut shrimp I've ever had.... Their cheese quesedias were very good too, and they come with guacamole -... More
