“Nice location”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

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..

“really really good”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

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!

“Great place for Breakfast”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

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.

“Mexican food for people who don't like Mexican food!”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

We are from California and eat a lot of Mexican food. We had dinner at Deborah's last week and overall the food was very bland. No spice at all. I think that suits many of the folks from the Northern latitudes as most have not acquired a taste for real Mexican food, so it is probably just fine for them.
When we asked the waiter for a little hotter salsa he brought us a bowl of SUPER HOT salsa , probably made from the Habanero pepper, as if for retaliation for questioning their food. The salsa was so hot that it is actually dangerous and your mouth and lips will burn for a long time. If you get a little on your finger and rub your eye it can actually cause temporary blindness.
Can you say Jalapeno?
