Fresh and Excellent!

We love this place! The burritos and tacos are always so fresh and made fast right before your eyes. We eat here every time we are in Highlands. They are only open from around 11am - 3pm, Monday through Saturday, I think. We love the fish tacos and burritos.

Same style as Chiptole. You order and they fix and put everything on it. I ordered a burrito and it was huge. And thank goodness I didn't order one with everything. Would not have been able to eat it. Food was fresh and restaurant was very clean. Service was good and with a smile. Thought their tea was a little... More

This isn't your average Mexican restaurant. Everything is made fresh and served buffet style. It can get a little expensive when you start adding sides to your taco or taco salad. Such as sour cream, guacamole, extra cheese. But, even their rice and beans are wonderful and their Chicken Enchilada soup are a good buy.

If fresh, quick and reasonable are your idea of lunch, then this place is perfect. Their menu is varried and all made fresh to order. Unfortunately, they only serve lunch so get there before 3 PM..

We always make sure to eat lunch at Pescados during our annual Thanksgiving vacation to the Highlands/Cashiers area. Food is fresh and consistently delicious! On this trip I ordered the Shrimp and Spinach Quesadilla. Perfection! Thanks again for another great lunch experience!

An unexpected treat. Food was what fast food should be - fresh, delicious, and quick at a reasonable price.

We have had burritos here many times. It is probably our kids favorite restaurant in Highlands. They equate it to chipotle which they love. Probably the best bargain in Highlands to feed a family good food.

This is my favorite spot for lunch. We eat here several times during each visit to Highlands. The food is fresh, delicious and served fast. The owner runs the register and he's always very friendly.

I got the shrimp burrito and it was ginormous while my father got the taco salad which was on the small side. The ingredients were fantastic and fresh, and I would highly recommend getting the burrito because it is a lot of bang for the buck. The reason for my 4 stars though is that the man was a bit...crisp.... More

Looking for a quick lunch after the three hour drive to Highlands, my wife and I stumbled upon Pescados. Similar to the chain burrito stores in that you order your meat and select the toppings while they make the burrito in front of you. Food had a good flavor and it was quick.
