Located at 17 Jesse Hill Jr. Dr., SE, Hecter’s Kitchen will have a rotating menu, along with a few mainstays such as Hecter’s Hamburger, chicken wings, salmon, and cinnamon rolls. The restaurant will be open Monday through Saturday from 8 am – 4 pm, making it the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or to grab a to-go dinner.

Chef Hand has already begun serving guests in the restaurant, allowing him to test the concept, while still maintaining an active catering business. There will be monthly theme nights such as Jazz, Female Impersonators and Black History, amongst many others. Hecter’s Kitchen’s official grand opening will be Friday, June 15.
