We actually ate here twice in one day! Our servers were awesome, very lively and happy to be there. The food was outstanding, chips and salsa with margaritas overlooking the lake... great way to spend the last few days of summer!

as most mexican joints are, chapala is definitely influenced by the american palate....nothing wrong with that...everyone loves a good plate of nachos, burrito, etc and theirs are great! they make good drinks and now that it has moved to the lake the view is better than before!

My job had been to drive all night a charter bus from Reno on very narrow boring rumble strip noisy country roads with blinding highbeam headlights from too many truckers,,, lots and lots of coffee !!
But I was rewarded,,, finally!!,,, by the super-friendly people of McCall, a tiny tiny resort town without even a proper bus dump station at the car wash, just an RV dump. 100s of miles to the next legal one,,, talk about "the boonies,,, the sticks !!"

The NACHO APPETIZER is too drive to far-off Idaho for !! So big and so delicious, with views of the lake, good service, good draft mex beer and only Winter mobs of skiers.
Also the SHREDDED BEEF ENCHILADAS were so delicious !! CHICKEN also !!

I could have eaten every lost charter bus driver meal there alone all week, but also found 9mo off Google Maps ,,, STAX SANDWICHES !!
Super nice family, attractive use of woods interior and GIGANTIC DELICIOUS SANDWICHES !!

Mucho Gracias, Chapala, even if for 9 mo Google Maps still has your pin marker on the Wrong side of the street.It's on the lakeshore, slackers !!

And Super-Duper lure Thanks to the Super helpful front desk ladies at Super 8 motel, and their free use of huge spray bottles of Fabreeze, hot tips and local knowledge, and general kindness to a lost Calboy.

Fourof us went to dinner here, I asked what other three thought of their dinners. All said the same. Average. So was mine - the Seafood special. Average. Overpriced and I have trouble thinking of popcorn shrimp as seafood. How you can make tortillas tough to even cut with a knife is beyond me. No refill on my soda was offered. It was hard to be very impressed.

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.
