Been going here for years. Everything on the menu is good, including breakfast. Go on out to a fancy restruant, then go here. Bet the food is just as good or better. Sit by the sidewalk and watch the people go by with a margarita grande. And the prices are right. Debra owns this, Moma Normas and Debra's.

We have eaten here for lunch or breakfast many times over past few years. Prices reasonable, food good and servers friendly and generally efficient. Great place to stop after a round of golf or prior to afternoon at beach.

Had the beef taco with cheese. It came to my table in about 3 minutes- literally. Was not good at all. Did not eat. Other peoples orders were delivered in the same amount of odd quick time. Service was prompt. Would not return. Cheers and happy eats.

Good breakfast and lunch was also good. My brother in law and I went in for lunch and were able to watch some hockey. I would recommend this place for sure

Had a 'takeout' lunch of beef tacos and were they tasty! Soft tacos, plenty of meat, rice, onions and fresh salsa. All nicely package up with forks and napkins. More than enough for the wife and I for lunch. Will be back for sure!

We stopped for tacos and were pleasantly surprised with the menu options for tacos... even a GRINGO TACO with ground beef. Three LARGE PORTION tacos with rice and beans -- the cerveza was very cold and the pico de gallo was awesome. Quick, Inexpensive lunch. A great stop.

Delish shrimp with friends! Reasonably priced! Flambé d bananas for desert, so good and they do it in front of you! We all had different things for dinner, shrimp mostly and fish. All were excellent, would definitely go back when next in Ixtapa!

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.

Thank rolfmj
