This was my favorite meal I had while in San Diego. The restaurant is a little hole in the wall that you could easily miss since it's set back from the road.

Although a tiny hole in the wall, I highly recommend Hectors! Easy to drive to and park. Friendly service. Great Mexican food at reasonable prices.

A small lovely place for huge and delicious burritos. Unbeatable value for your money. Get the California Burrito if you're a meat lover!

Arrived in San Diego for a work function. As my wife and I drove around we found Hectors. A small local place with amazing food! Prices are fair and portions are huge!

What a great spot. Simple eatery. Food prepared by the owner! Had the enchilada and burrito combo- plenty of food and great taste/flavour. Here at a local hotel and am glad I found this restaurant. Would come again.

Great little place. I found the name a bit misleading "Hector's Mexican & Seafood" sounds like a "restaurant" as in kind of formal. The place is more like a stationary food truck. All the basics, fresh, simple, good prices. Absolutely a place for your daily Mexican fix. The location on Rosecrands is set back from the street, we drove by... More
