Hits the spot

I've been here for a breakfast burrito once, and for lunch. The tortillas they use a great, and they use 2 on the tacos. The carne asada was good, but not a lot of spice. The fish tacos were OK. I would return.

This is a fantastic 24-hr Mexican fast food restaurant that is absolutely the best you could ask for. Whether you're heading back from the slopes or are just in need of a late night snack, Hector's is worth the trek and the wait (because there will likely be a line). I'm easy to please -- bean and cheese burrito, churro,... More

My grandma probably won't agree (sorry abuela) but this is the best Mexican ever. Get the carne asada burrito but don't forget to add cheese and sour cream.

Fish Taco's were burnt beyond recognition, probably won't be going back there again. There are other places that are much better!

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
