The food is just spot on when it comes to the American version of Mexican food. Presented in a proud way therefore the owners and employees are truly vested in their customers satisfaction. Fast and very professional service and the atmosphere were great. I will be back.

Eat while enjoying views of beautiful Payette lake while dining on patio or inside. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

Great Cadillac Margaritas! We had very fast and attentive service. Our food was very good. It was dark so we couldn't see the lake but in a summer evening I imagine that this would be a great place to sit out on their deck and enjoy the view.

Typical Mexican restaurant. Nothing fancy, but clean and tidy. Fabulous view of the lake makes it worthwhile. I'd go here for the view, Pueblo Lindo's for the food.

This was our second visit to this facility although we visit Chapala restaurants in Boise 3-4 times a year. The food is always very good and consistent.

You are also in the heart of Old McCall, so you can stroll the area before or after dining. The wait staff was efficient and understanding, since we were visiting with an old friend and quite...

We ate on the patio with a stunning viewed the lake. There is a children's menu that was satisfactory for the grand children. We ordered the shredded beef tostada salad. The beef was fresh and well cooked. The tostada she'll was standard store bought, not freshly made. The food is not very spicy and if you are looking for California... More

Love the chips and salsa! Strawberry margarita was delicious and my Shrimp ala Crema was very good. Location can't be beat...overlooking Payette Lake. Hubby and I have eaten here quite a few times and will continue to do so when we get a craving for Mexican Food.

Very tasty Mexican food in a beautiful setting on the beach at Payette Lake. When the sun goes down the air cools rapidly, so be prepared.
