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

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

We have been to most of the Mexican restaurants in Milwaukee, but had never been here before. Shame on us! We arrived early and found that Happy Hour specials were in force. Really good margaritas! Ordered the chicken tinga and puerco en adobo. Large portions...More

My wife and I have been going to Hector's for over twenty years. It was one of only a few authentic, rather creative Mexican restaurants in Milwaukee. Unfortunately, not much has changed in that twenty years. There are still some good dishes here, like the...More

My husband and I like to eat at Hector's when we are in the mood for Mexican. They have great fajitas (my husband) and a grilled chicken taco. Also good chips and salsa beforehand. They have a happy hour with yummy Margaritas. Guac is pretty...More
