After a semi-disastrous experience at another Mexican food place in McCall, it was a relief to get a decent meal here. Don't expect too much and you'll be reasonably satisfied.
Once offering some of the best Mexican eateries in Idaho, the Chapala brand seems to be on the decline and nothing illustrates it better than the McCall location. We've eaten there twice since their move to their current lakeside location, and it's nothing like the Chapala of the old Lenora Street location. The food is generally heavy, salty, greasy and...

Don't lose your mind and order a margarita.. it is just wine margaritas which are not great.. but the food is really great and the patio is amazing. Trio of Fajitas is enough for two people for dinner AND breakfast fillings for omelettes in the morning!
Chapala's is excellent in it's price range and for casual dining. We stop in at Chapala's frequently when visiting McCall. It moved to a new location last year and has a wonderful view of Payette Lake. It has a nice outdoor patio in summer. The chips are great, the food is good and the marguarita's hand made. Don't expect gourmet... More
Stopped in for a quick meal after our drive to McCall it was about 9pm and the place was busy however we where quickly shown to a table and had drinks orders taken. Drinks arrived promptly and my blended margarita was perfect dinner order was taken and arrive in no time at all. Great service meals and drinks. Look forward... More
Wanting to get Mexican food somewhere overlooking Payette Lake, we decided to give Chapalas a try in spite of some negative and lukewarm reviews. Maybe it was due to our lowered expectations, but we turned out to be quite pleased with Chapalas. We did get a shaded table overlooking the lake, and all four of us agreed that our food... More
The food served here was absolutely horrid. My family finished their dinner in about five minutes after it hit the table. I couldn't even get upset with them because I couldn't even finish my plate. Disgusting. The view would make it great to go out on the deck and have some beers but do not order any food. Even the... More
My friend wanted to take me to lunch for my birthday. I choose Chapala's in their new location downtown McCall. That is a huge mistake. The service was horrendous. I just don't think any of the servers working at the time cared at all about their job. To top it off our food came and we got beef instead of... More
I hadn't eaten at Chapala's since a new Mexican Place (Pueblo Lindo) moved into town that I really like, but thought I would give it a chance in its new location on the lake. I will never make this mistake again. The service was terrible, unfriendly and inefficient and the food had no flavor. They also brought us the wrong... More
First off, TGI Friday margarita mix!? That is unacceptable for a Mexican restaurant with a bar. The margaritas are disgustingly sweet with the mix. The food itself is great. The atmosphere on the lake hard to beat. Service was spotty and they couldn't accommodate our group of 10 which was unfortunate. Overall a great place that just needs to step... More
