Si Bueno Southside Grill is closing July 26, 2019

As most know, we have been trying to find a buyer for some time and are now in the process of selling.  New owners will be converting the building into a professional building, which means there will be one less restaurant and bar in town.

As the catering division of the business continues to grow, Melinda will be taking time off (maybe write that cookbook!), and plans to continue catering in summer, with All Events Catering, booking small, private events and offering in-home ‘Chef and Service’, with unique meals, and over the top quality service!

No Parties over 6 at this time please


After 41 years, it’s bittersweet to close this local eatery and gathering place. We have seen so many ups and downs in McCall, keeping up with customer’s ever-changing whims and requests…more than a small challenge, always gratifying.

It’s difficult to close the door on this iconic business knowing the disappointment in the faces of our loyal customers when they find out they can’t walk into their favorite eatery after all these years.

We will miss our ‘cheers’ bar filled with a loyal base of customers. With them we have shared some of the most personal experiences of our lives, from births to deaths, and will cherish these memories. This special group will find a new place to gather; we look forward to catching up with them!

Even harder will be not working with our small, but incredible, crew of professionals. They truly are Si Bueno’s backbone carrying us through the years; so grateful they want to stay on to say goodbye and help us close the restaurant and bar.

There have been way too many people in our lives helping us along the way to acknowledge, you know who you are, we couldn’t have done it without you.  We would love for you to stop in the last few days we are open for that ‘Si Bueno’ experience.  We will be offering “The Favorites” menu and specials through 7/19 and closing the bar down with promotions, giveaways, a silent auction of collectibles and souvenirs from 7/24-7/26.

From our family to yours, we sincerely appreciate your support all these years and look forward to greeting you on the street in the future!

Hasta la vista,

Rod, Melinda and Colby Nielsen
