I eat here a few times a week. It's good food,convenient and affordable. I highly recommend the Mixto breakfast burrito and the California burrito.

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.
