I was traveling with my recently-graduated niece, visiting the North Carolina area. We had been window shopping in Highlands and gazing at menus that were pretty pricey.

Went in one day about 30 mins before closing time. Staff was friendly and fast. Food was fresh and tasty and not over seasoned like most burrito places. Will definitely eat here again.

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.
