1.0 star rating 1/22/2018 Worst Mexican food in 57 years. Mexican is my favorite, and I have had some doozies, but this one was the most disgusting ever. The shredded beef was oozing what tasted exactly like sloppy joe sauce, in my enchilada verde. Gross....More

Milwaukee sometimes doesn't know what it likes, it likes what it knows. That is definitely the case here. Poorly done food that relies on the crappy margaritas to cover up the taste. When their regular customer base goes six feet under this place will deservedly...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.

Margaritas are good. Been there 6-7 times. Sometimes food is hot and good quality. A few times food was luke warm and looked like they just slopped it all on the platter, even some of the food hanging off the plate. Worst thing I remember...More

We previously dined at Hector's on Delaware but for some reason that location closed and this was our first opportunity to visit the remaining location. The food was just as entertaining at this location. The building is a converted house with parking in the rear...More

I don't know why, but enchiladas are something I just can not make at home. So, I stopped at Hector's. It is believable Tex-mex and plenty of it to fill your belly. The price seemed a bit high, but I think is still worth your...More

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