We went here for a late lunch, and we remembered it to be a decent place. It has gone downhill. I ordered a margarita, enchilada and jalapeno poppers. The margarita was tasty, but food was a fright. My enchilada was good, but small with not much sauce or cheese. The lettuce garnish on the side was old and had brown... More

Hector's is my wife favorite stop for Mexican food in Omaha. And she's not alone - they are usually busy and often have a waitlist, especially on weekends. The food is good. Service is mostly good although you'll occasionally find a host or server that isn't overly cordial. They have a tortilla maker near the front door that will usually... More

Being from South Texas, we grew up loving Mexican food. I usually judge a Mexican restaurant by their Chile Rellenos and Guacamole. Hector's Rellenos were great, the Seafood Enchilada was flavorful and my wife's Black Bean Soup was hot, smooth and tasty. Now for the not so good news that caused a lose of two stars: #1. The Banana Margarita... More

We both ordered Enchiladas Guadalajara. The chicken breast meat was as fresh and tasty as if I has grilled it myself. They were really excellent. As good as I've had anywhere. The chips and salsa were refilled until we said 'no mas". Everything was perfect. After trying several, this is our go to Mexican spot in Omaha.

Recently went to the Hector's in West Omaha. If you haven't been here before, it's definitely worth a stop. To start, you are given chips and salsa. Hector's goes a step further and has a little salsa bar with a couple additional salsas from mild to hot. I really enjoyed the hotter selection, while the kids enjoyed the very mild... More

Love the nachos! The grilled chicken tacos are always excellent. My husband loves the burritos. Their Top Shelf Margarita is my favorite one.

We went with friends on a Friday night and the place was full, but our service was quick and consistent. Food was good, full menu including bar. Would go again.

I have been to this hectors about 4 times over the course of the last few years and every time I go the food is bland and crappy. I kept giving it more chances because I thought maybe I was just ordering a bad menu item, but nope. It all tastes like it's been microwave, not only due to the... More

I recently was responsible for finding a place for a group of retired people who live throughout the city; requiring me to find a location with a party room or separate area. Since it was around the Christmas holiday, it was a difficult task. I called Hector's and it was indeed a good choice. I wasn't sure how many people... More
