Description: 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.

Si Bueno restaurant is still there, but under a new name. They have different options on their menu, but also still offer the famed Mexican food they have always served. The guacamole is homemade with big chunks of avocado and delicious. We had good service and the food was tasty too.

“Missing the old Si Bueno”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

We thought we would try the "new" menu at Si Bueno. We were very disappointed, to say the least. We did not see much of a change in the restaurant or the menu. We ordered from the Mexican side and our fajitas were "poor" at best. The cocktails were even worse. We ordered a mojito and it certainly was not prepared correctly. We always enjoyed Si Bueno but it will be quite awhile before we try again

“We remain unconvinced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

Recently updated menu was odd, with many standard kitsch type offerings and nothing to make it stand out from the crowd. We stayed with the Mexican side of the menu and were disappointed. The carne asada was simply sliced up steak, very little flavor. Food wasn't quite hot enough and favors lacked depth and interest.

“Reasonable Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012 via mobile

The food here is good not great. Menu is reasonable but nothing exotic. Priced reasonably, the Chile Verde is quite tasty on a cold day.
