Four of us arrived about 5:30, it took a while to be seated at one of the empty tables. You walk through the small bar with its' t.v.s to the seating area. There were also four tables outside along State Street (noisy). By the time...More

I visited for the first time in June; I had the shrimp, avocado quesadillas and they were SO good. The margaritas weren't that great...they tasted kind of like a glorified slushee. The atmosphere and decor is nothing fancy...in fact it could use a bit of...More

This is a pretty average mexican restaurant. Food isn't pricey nor is it the best mexican I've ever had. If you've been to one mexican joint you've been to this one.

Wanted some place close and different. Interior not much to look at. The menu had a nice variety. The food was good and hot.

I had heard many wonderful things about Hector's so perhaps my expectations were too high. Hector's is a very friendly, clean restaurant. The service was great. My Sol was ice cold and the margaritas were very good according to the rest of my party. I...More

When we want an early Mexican dinner, we head to Hectors. We go early because the dining room is very small and we don't want to wait in the small crowded bar area. The food is good, the Jalapeño Poppers are really yummy! Service is...More
