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.

This was highly disappointing, especially with its prime location. Everything in our group appeared to be of poor quality and reminded me of little more than I would expect of Taco Bell. The quesadillas were worse than Taco Bell and had little coverage on the tortilla. Absolutely no reason to visit this place and it doesn't seem like it belong... More

Good reasonable lunch. We had garlic beef taco salad and the chicken taco salad. Both quite good. The taco itself was a bit bland, but the salad ingredients were all fresh and tasty

This is one of the best burrito and taco places we have ever been to. They use fresh ingredients and the portions are generous. We love coming to Pescado's not only is the food great but the prices are good too. Nice and clean!

I stopped in here so my wife could get a quick bite to hold her over before dinner. She got three tacos. The service was quick, prices excellent, and she said the food was above average for Mexican. I'd stop here again for a full meal when back in the area.

Taco Bell is better. Flies swarming around. Go get some peanut butter and jelly, which will cost a fortune, from the grocery store.
