Friday PM in lounge area. Not only to they have complimentary chips, salsa, they bring out plate of fair nacho's (serve yourself from a side table). Reasonable menu with a few specialty items. Obviously have strayed from the "Mexican" theme it started with. Adequate friendly staff, fair pricing on food and drink.

I have known great south of the border food here for decades. This trip I found the Cantina to be a friendly and welcoming place. Guinness on tap was a bonus.

The fajitas were SO GOOD!! Hot and sizzling! The service was fast and friendly. This place is decorated with aircraft stuff, and actually has the back end of a plane sticking out of the roof! Quaint with a cozy bar area as well.

Stopped in for dinner with my husband, they were not very busy which should have been our first clue... we had one side of the dining room to ourselves. We weren't expecting the menu to be entirely Mexican food we thought it would also have a variety of American as well so that was a little disappointing but not as... More

Starting with a customer choice to eat outside or inside,it was blocked by a very unprofessional chat of the guest server,by trying to explain,that being "short of help you won't get the service you deserve",by the tone of her explanation,made me feel like ,I had no choice. Here we are,the server brought in the salsa with chips,for the starter,and sorry,but... More

The food was good but not as good as Chapala. The service was great. If you want Mexican food, try Chapala instead.

We went here for dinner. The complimentary chips are awesome. We even bought some to take home. The kids had kids meals they enjoyed and we adults shared chicken fajitas. They were good but could have used more chicken. The Margarita was also good.

It has Idaho Mexican food, good but lacks the authentic Mexican flavors. Good atmosphere, clean. It's across from the airport and has a place stuck in it's roof!

Have been eating here since they opened in the 70's. Their lunch specials are always good, so typically order it without evening asking what it is. Quite often during the summer I have the opportunity to enjoy their Catered Food on "The Idaho Cruise Boat" out on Payette Lake. ALWAYS Great Crew & Great Food!

Located across from McCall airport, Southside Grill offers an aviators themed, casual atmosphere in a uniquely decorated log building. Famous for our homemade Mexican fare since 1978, menu offers salads with a twist, hand carved steaks, shrimp 5 ways, salmon with Peruvian flare, house roasted potatoes, quinoa, vegetarian and gluten free options as well. Sauces are the kicker, fusing flavors from Mexico, Peru and Argentina along with traditional American classics. Everything is made from scratch, so it may take longer, but cooked-to-order chips & fresh salsa go well with our famous margaritas or your favorite cocktail beverage from a full bar and makes the wait worth it. Families enjoy our all-ages TV room for sports along with a full kids menu. Private banquet room with adjoining patio can accomodate up to 50 guests and full restaurant available for groups up to 125 for private parties along with custom menus and full catering services as well. We are a small family owned business with our first 2 employees still working for us. Seasonal shortage of servers may leave us with only one person to take care of the whole restaurant, however, experienced servers will go out of the way to make sure you have everything you need and if they have time love to visit and tell a story or two...Rest assured, you've found one of McCall's treasures.
