Great food bad beer

Love the food here, but the beer selection was basic. Need to get a craft or two on draft in there and the place would be an easy 4 star all day.

Very, very loud atmosphere. 2 tables in the same part of the restaurant yelling & laughing loudly...no one said anything to them. Service very disappointing. Server did not check back on me for drink refiĺl, or to see if all was well, or even if I wanted dessert. Food.... unimpressive. Salsa was reminiscent of thin catsup. I ordered crab enchilada...

Very good venue, but I prefer the smaller original one off of 84th. The night I was here the waiter was very preoccupied with a conversation with the kitchen staff. The food and drinks were excellent.

The food is awesome and the service is good. I like the prices here. I had the fish tacos and the fish was really fresh and well cooked

Every time we go there it seems that the employees are bothered that they have to work. It feels that they don't want you there. The food is good, but if you want a special order, such as hold the olives or no beans don't expect your order to be correct....ever.

Just went to Hector's for lunch. WOW!! I had an enchilada combo, which was fabulous. Great flavors, good portions. Our server was attentive and polite. Very relaxing atmosphere. I prefer this location out west. Service was slow, but I preferred it that way. We were not rushed. I was able to enjoy conversation with my friends and really enjoy a... More

We haven't been here in awhile and now I remember why. The salsa taste like pureed tomatoes. No spice and no flavor. The meals were pricey and just so so. The speed at which your food comes out is excellent. The server was ok. We ordered water without lemon and when it came there was lemon in it and we... More

I love Mexican food. I tend to compare to what I've had when visiting southern California. Omaha seems to have countless places to get it and I've tried many of them. I've been to Hectors at their original location and now their new West location, which is just great, The drinks and chips come out in just a minute, the... More
