Hector's is always consistent and very good. You get great Mexican food that isn't the typical mass of greasy cheese. Great chips, too!

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.
