Chapala has combined the art and science of semi-authentic Mexican food to provide Boiseans with a semi-tropical paradise to which we keep returning. Chapala is Mexican kitsch but not over the top. They bring you hot platters, dripping with cheese and laden with meats in rich, spicy salsas. They are attentive, but not overbearing. They provide just the right musical flair during your meal. How many Boiseans have retired to the shores of Lake Chapala in Guadalajara because of this place cannot be known. But put us on the list.
