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... read 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

Typical American-Mexican cuisine with American tastes in mind. Large portions for the money. The El Presidante margarita needed to be jazzed up, so we ordered a couple shots of El Jimador to pour into the drink. Without the Jimador, it's a sour lemonade drink. The server delivered the Jimador shots with a slice of lime, which she placed on the... More

My family and I went on a Friday pm, no wait. It was very hot in the restaurant. I spoke with hostess upon arrival. She states, yes Hector does not believe in a/c. He will not turn it down. Customers where using menus as fans at many tables complaining also. Hector was there and it never did get cool in... More

Years ago I had the Tequila Lime Shrimp at the original location as a nightly special and it was excellent; so good I had a craving for it. When we returned to the restaurant it was either not available or not the same. This dish is now on the menu with a salad and some rice for $21. The spicy... More

The best part of our dining experience was Juan our server. Greasy, cold tortilla chips served with a salsa like I've never had before--canned crushed tomatoes with no chile flavor at all!! Juan brought three others to try and they were quite good. The grilled chicken Chimichanga was very greasy and the chicken was lacking in flavor, more like poached... More

I live near Hectors and I know many purple who absolutely love it. I have never had that experience. Went again today. We had to wait about a minute for a hostess to assist UA. It wasn't very busy. I always notice the chairs frames feel sticky, they were today as well. Our service was quick but this time it... More
