This is a place filled with locals on a Friday night. There's hardly any seating, and most food is drive-through or to go. Prices are low and the food is great. I had carnitas, which were delicious. I definitely recommend it.

We used to live in the neighborhood and ate here regularly. We love the food and the family. We moved out of state. This is our first stop when we come to town. We were so surprised that hector recognized us after two years away. You can't go wrong with the carne asada burrito or tacos.

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!

There are a lot of quick Mexican food shops in SLC but this is my favorite. It is clearly family owned and Hector and his parents are always there. The food is fast, tasty and it is a great atmosphere. I love to just stop in grab a burrito and some carrots and be on my way. If you are... More

I have looked tirelessly for really good Mexican food in Utah and I finally found it at Hectors. The food was great and the prices were very fair. It is just tiny and was packed when I was there but I could see why. The owner was super nice and the service was very good.

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
