Been going to Hector's (or Molcasalsa) for 14yrs. Even if I haven't been there for a long time, Hector knows my voice over the intercom and already what I want. The guy REALLY cares. The food is great but the place as a whole is AWESOME. Give it a try anytime...you won't be disappointed!

I'll be comparing this to Alberto's. I've had too many bad experiences with Beto's to even make a comparison here and can't ever imagine going back there. Carne Asada Burrito - 4 stars Probably as good as any I can recall having in Utah. Didn't get any gross pieces of meat that you'll sometimes find with other places like Beto's.... More

I love Mexican food and these people know how to make it!!!! I went there for continuous 1.5 months. I love their California burrito. A family own restaurant, they will start remembering your your few visit and you won't know that its a restaurant its feel like family. A must go for all who love Mexican food.

I have been going here for nearly 20 years now and enjoy my meal every time. Pick one of the monthly specials for added value. Everything tastes even better after midnight.

Moca Salsa is a "must" stop on our visits to Salt Lake City. My husband really likes the carne asada burritos. I have to agree with him. The chicken tacos are great, and they make their own salsa. There is no real comfortable place to eat inside the restaurant, so I recommend it for take out. They also have a... More

A large group of us arrived in SLC for rafting on the Yampa River and stopped in on our way East. What a find! Authentic Mexican served quickly with a smile. Very friendly service, terrific chicken burritos and carnitas. The ice cinnamon horchato drink was a sweet treat. Churos for everyone, we loved it!

Awesome chicken chimichangas, carne asada, and the best horchata around. A long time favorite of mine. Hit it in between meals to avoid crowds. This place gets busy late at night, too. Well known to the locals.

We live down the street from the molcha salsa on 3300 S. It is a family favorite. We eat there once a week on average. The food is homemade. The owners and their family are very nice. Seating is limited, but on a summer night the outside seating is perfect.

The food is authentic and tasty. The prices are good and the people are nice. Best if you go late at night.
