Locals flock here!

The locals made it clear, this is the place to hang out and enjoy awesome shakes. Peanut butter chocolate? Yes please. An amazing variety of flavors and worth the wait as the line to order often files out the door.

I've been going to McCall since I was born and My Father's Place has always been a favorite place for a tasty lunch. Their fresh fruit and delicious ice cream makes the very best shakes ever!! While the food ain't cheap, it's always good, as is their service. It's a must every visit!!

After driving by all summer and see the long lines, we were finally able to get a chance to try out this place and see what all the fuss was about. Although the burgers are priced higher than what you would pay at other burger joints, I would have to say its worth the extra cost. We each had different... More

Very good burgers and shakes. Seriously good shakes. The line was really long but then again we were there right at noon. But the line moved fairly quickly and the food was worth the wait.

Good availability of seating inside an out. Quick service and delicious - if somewhat expensive - milk shakes and they'll put in whatever flavor combinations you want. We were not hungry so we only got the shakes.

This is a small place with indoor and outdoor seating. The shakes, onion rings, french fries and hamburgers were all very good. There is usually a line. If you only want shakes and drinks there is a side window that you can order from. The onion ring and french fry baskets are enough for 3-4 people if you are getting... More

Can be crowded, seating limited. However hamburgers, shakes, ice cream and sundaes are well worth the wait. You won.t be disappointed.

So glad our friend recommended we stop-in to try their fantastic burgers, fries and shakes! The bonus for me (being celiac) was that they offered gluten free buns!! We arrived around 11:30am, which was just in front of the lunch crowd that extended out the door by 12noon. The service was ultra-fast and they brought our order to your table.... More

Great food: burgers, chicken sandwiches, generous servings of fries (regular or sweet potato). The shakes are phenominal--tried a caramel shake, very good! The line will be out the door waiting to order at this place, but worth the wait! Indoor and outdoor seating available. Staff members are pleasant!

This is a cute little diner type place. They have a varied burger menu ie, beef, turkey, buffalo. I really liked the burger I ordered. It was hot when it arrived and very tasty. The fries weren't too bad either. The service is fast and friendly. My Fathers Place has neat outdoor seating. This place will not break your budget.... More
