I always love a tasty late night taco joint. This was the only place that was open after midnight in the neighborhood, and it was a hit!

We go to Hectors all the time! The food is amazing and very well priced! Has a local vibe and the people are very friendly. Might I add that it's open very late, so you can get your taco fix at 1am.

Hector's is by far one of the best Mexican restaurants in the valley. I used to come and get just the breakfast burritos, which are excellent, but saw them making their chicken tacos, and knew that I needed to have them. I was not disappointing, and the chicken tacos are one of their best selling dishes (along with the Carne... More

I'm not a huge Mexican food fan but the California burrito is one of my favorites foods ever! I crave it all the time! Go there! It's delicious!

We visited Hector's for lunch on a Wednesday in October at about 1pm. The wait for food was about 10 minutes and there was plenty of seating outside and inside. It is definitely a better choice in warm weather, so that it is possible to sit outside. The food was good - standard mexican. My carne asada burrito had one... More

I usually go for their carnitas burrito that is chock full of pork & guacamole, with no rice or bean fillers. I was watching them prepare some beautiful, fresh green chillies for chile rellenos, so I ordered one. It was divine! It's an order at the counter, carry out, fast food place, but there is outdoor seating.

Great late night stop or if you have a hankering for some quick cheap Mexican food this place is tops. I usually order a California burrito, carne asada burrito or rolled tacos w cheese and guac. So tasty! Oh, and there is a drive thru.

Without a doubt the best burritos I've ever had. This place is a legend in ski history. Grab a Breakfast Burrito before hitting the slopes and stop by later for a Chorizo burrito as an apres ski snack. Don't forget to use plenty of their excellent homemade hot sauce too.

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.
