Crusty's Pizza - Wow! We just recently discovered this gem. If you're looking for an unusually fresh and creative menu, this is your place. Their house salad includes mixed greens, cranberry and pumpkin seeds, need I say more? They have pasta, paninis and amazing pizzas with ingredients like fresh garlic, basil and oregano, elk sausage, kalamata olives, sundried tomatoes. They also have a variety of live music.

Toll Station Pizza - Highly recommended for great pizza and a delicious salad bar. During the summer sit out on the patio with a view of Payette Lake.

Bistro 45 - A favorite! Wine bar and cafe with a delicious menu including garlic baked brie and tomato basil bruschetta. Their sandwiches are outstanding. A large outside seating area in a delightful courtyard. Dogs are welcome.

Chapala Mexican Restaurant - Unbelievably fast and friendly service. Your food is delivered only minutes after ordering. A great outside deck with lake view. 

My Father's Place - Burgers, the most delicious chicken sandwiches you've ever tasted, and the thickest freshest banana and strawberry shakes. No website - located at 901 N 3rd.

The Pancake House - You can't leave McCall without eating here! The food is outstanding. Homestyle cooking at it's best - and the portions are enormous. If you order pancakes, only order one. They're a full plate size and you'll be lucky if you can finish one. They also have a coffee bar and The Christmas House Gift Shop, a great place to purchase a souvenir. Limited hours - they are only open until 2:00 pm. The coffee bar is open later and also serves food.
