I've been here multiple times. Overall it's a very average Mexican restaurant. Nothing special. Not bad not good. It'll suffice you have a taco craving.

I recently was responsible for finding a place for a group of retired people who live throughout the city; requiring me to find a location with a party room or separate area. Since it was around the Christmas holiday, it was a difficult task. I called Hector's and it was indeed a good choice. I wasn't sure how many people... More

Love the food here, but the beer selection was basic. Need to get a craft or two on draft in there and the place would be an easy 4 star all day.

Very, very loud atmosphere. 2 tables in the same part of the restaurant yelling & laughing loudly...no one said anything to them. Service very disappointing. Server did not check back on me for drink refiĺl, or to see if all was well, or even if I wanted dessert. Food.... unimpressive. Salsa was reminiscent of thin catsup. I ordered crab enchilada...

Very good venue, but I prefer the smaller original one off of 84th. The night I was here the waiter was very preoccupied with a conversation with the kitchen staff. The food and drinks were excellent.

The food is awesome and the service is good. I like the prices here. I had the fish tacos and the fish was really fresh and well cooked

Every time we go there it seems that the employees are bothered that they have to work. It feels that they don't want you there. The food is good, but if you want a special order, such as hold the olives or no beans don't expect your order to be correct....ever.

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 conversation with my friends and really enjoy a... More
