I ordered a been and cheese burrito for myself and a tostada for my 4 year old. Neither one of us could eat our meals because of the horrible smelling beans. They literally looked and smelled like vomit. I told the waiter we did not...More

This is our favorite place for Mexican in West Omaha. It is billed as Baja Mexican and is not as heavy or oily as other places. The service is very good and the food comes shortly after ordering. Salsa and chips are served when you...More

Recently went to the Hector's in West Omaha. If you haven't been here before, it's definitely worth a stop. To start, you are given chips and salsa. Hector's goes a step further and has a little salsa bar with a couple additional salsas from mild...More

Love the nachos! The grilled chicken tacos are always excellent. My husband loves the burritos. Their Top Shelf Margarita is my favorite one.
