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.

I LOVE mexican food and was so happy we found this place a couple years ago. The food is always fresh, we have never been disappointed, the people are friendly, it doesn't cost a fortune to eat here and the restaurant is nice and clean. I look forward to eating here every time we are in Highlands.

Great burritos and sauces. Fresh and staff is very friendly. It is a small place with a walk up counter so makes a great place for lunch or casual dinner.

Needed a small late lunch and we each got one taco which was perfect. Chicken soft taco built to order with fresh toppings was great, as was the pork soft taco. Hot sauces at the table let you spice it up as desired. Very fast and friendly as well. I would go back.

We have not tasted their food. Their hours open just not fit our schedule. They close at 3PM. Location is good, just off main street. We like Mexican food and would like to try their food if only their hours of operation were normal!

A reasonably priced lunch spot in Highlands. Sort of like fast food, but much healthier and nice fresh options. We've eaten at Pescado's numerous times over several years and never disappointed. Love the fish burritos.
