I rarely give a restaurant 5-stars, especially a medium priced restaurant. Hector's deserves 5-stars because their food is surprisingly good, unique and flavorful while also being very affordable. Service was terrific. They really take care of their customers. When you are seated, they offer the usual chips, salsa and creamy avocado sauce. Their salsa is made fresh and is served hot with steam coming from the bowl. It tastes wonderful. My wife had ordered the tamale dinner, while I ordered the fish enchiladas. She is really, really picky about her tamales... but said these were the BEST she's ever eaten. The pork tamales are covered with a meat gravy. They are tender, well flavored and surprisingly different. The fish enchiladas were really good too. The sauce was a white Mexican cheese & white wine with mushroom and vegetables added. The white wine added a pleasant taste to the sauce. Both dinners came with Mexican rice and re-fried beans. Normally, I will taste re-fried beans at any other restaurant and dismiss them as being non-edible. These were actually good. Hectors makes their own re-fried beans and it tastes like they pan grilled and flavored them before plating. The rice was really well made, lightly flavored but it complimented the entrees really well. For service, Hectors gets 5-stars. For food quality and caring about taste and appearance... again 5-Stars. For pricing and value for the money... again 5-Stars. My family will be back. I've already recommended them to several friends. No wonder every time you pass by, there are cars in the parking lot. They seem to always have business, like any really good restaurant will. I would put Hectors on the list as a family friendly restaurant with great food at budget prices. You will leave full and happy you came.
Los Vega is a great family Mexican restaurant. The service is quick and friendly and the smiles are genuine. Most dinners are between $6.50-$10.00, so it is very affordable. Drink prices are low. Some dishes are really flavorful, others are pretty good. The Nachos Supreme are very good, well made with a wonderful flavor. Its a good start to a meal. I ordered the Fajitas Diablas. Now THAT is an excellent Mexican dinner. The balance of peppers, steak, chicken, shrimp with mushrooms and grilled onions was outstanding. My wife tried their tamales. 1) Their tamales are above average, tender and meaty but need more spice. 2) HELLO! Mexican Restaurant... should have more than one Tamale dish on the menu! My kids tried the cheese enchilladas, again above average but not special. The house salsa with chips were pretty good. Salsa is obviously made fresh in the kitchen, but it needs something. Its ok, but not really cravable. I want chunks of onion, tomato, green pepper and fresh cilantro. The food is served fresh and hot. Los Vega has some excellent dishes and a good local reputation for well made food. Just be choosy and try one of their Chef Specials, not the ordinary thing. Restaurant crew sings a Mexican version of Happy Birthday to a strummed guitar. The Happy Birthday song has only 5 chords, but can be played pretty well with just 3. Learning those would help. The out-of-tune strumming and off-key singing were fun to watch for novelty... but it wouldn't hurt to learn the song properly too. I give the restaurant three stars. Improve the house salsa and serve more than one tamale dish (spicier)... and I'll make it four stars. Service was outstanding.
This warm and inviting Taco House has become our number one place for breakfast! We keep coming back for two reasons. One, the variety of tacos offered every day are so delicious and mouth watering. My six year old son enjoys “tacos de barbacoa” and my personal favorite is “huevos con papas.” They have many different tacos and I highly recommend you check this place out! The second reason we keep coming back is the warm and friendly service you get. As soon as you walk in a sweet man will greet you with a smile. When I’m there, I feel like I’m with family. The staff is very courteous and respectful! In simple terms, it just feels right when we come in for our breakfast tacos! Thank you!
