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!

I would never go to this restaurant to have a meal. The Americans that patronize this restaurant are usually loud, noisy and drunk. Sober up and please exhibit some manners!!!!

We live in Zihuatanejo 6 months out of the year. After reading good reviews, we finally tried dinner at Chili Beans. The food and service were fine. I do feel that the owner should know that tourists using their credit cards, in foreign countries, or anywhere for that matter, do not like them being taken out of the restaurant, and... More

Another option for breakfast. It is very crowded for breakfast in the morning. I was taking the order back to our hotel. They package it very well and I had no problems carrying it back across the streeet. The pancakes, fresh fruit and orange juice were all very good.

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!
