“Very good Baja style”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

We always enjoy the food at Hector's. I'm from San Diego, so I enjoy the Baja style. Occasionally the service is an issue and as others have said, get there early or plan on waiting. If you wait in the bar, you'll likely have to go up and get your own drink because they don't seem to have a dedicated server for that area

“EXCELLENT BAJA style Mexican and GREAT Margaritas!”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

Wide variety of choices, fresh and homemade. There is something for everyone. I prefer spicy so I love their Carne Adovada Taco. It's pork seasoned with chilis, grilled and stuffed into a double layer of soft corn tortillas. It's a bit pricey at approx $4.00 each taco, but well worth it for the unique flavor. Also, from the Ala Carte menu, their Quesadillas are really good. We like the Black Bean one or the Carnitas one. There's a wide variety of flavors in the frozen Margaritas, although I prefer mine on the rocks no salt and they are terrific! Go early, they get really busy!

“A Southern Californian Family Favorite”
Reviewed October 26, 2010

After my family moved to Omaha, the first thing we missed was the Baja Mexican food. That all changed when Hector's opened and started cooking up some seriously good Baja styled Mexican food. It seems Hectors is often under appreciated by locals because so many around here are not use to authentic Mexican food i.e. cheese whiz.

Hectors has excellent salsa verde, so make sure you ask for it when first seated. Hectors specializes in Baja style by offering many seafood dishes including fish tacos. The menu also includes some Tex Mex variety with decent fajitas. Also, the tamales and chili rellenos are not New Mexico good, but the best I have had in Omaha. The menu is flexible as well, so you can order any ala carte combination you want. I recommend you hit up Hectors if you get a craving fantastic Baja styled Mexican food. Oh, and be sure to get there early.

“Good, but not as good as it used to be ...”
Reviewed October 4, 2010

We have been eating at Hectors since it opened but will probably not use it as a primary for Mexican as we used to. When they opened they had a salsa bar which was wonderful with its selections - that was one of the first things to go. They have some good specials - baja style lobster tacos for one. Portion size and value is poor compared to the average Mexican place in town. Margaritas are a bright spot.... Some nights they have live marichi music which is a nice touch.

Very busy - come early or be prepared to wait.
