Cute place, good alternative to chains

With a menu that has something for everyone in the family (burgers, salads, Mexican, kid menu), Highland House is a favorite in the area. Lively Caribbean decor with nice outdoor dining areas and fireplaces. Good tap beer selection and fun cocktails as well (my Bloody Mary was garnished with some... read more

This is a good place to go for Mexican Food. The parking lot can look full but that doesn't necessarily mean that you will have to wait to be seated. We've been there twice and it was busy both times. We were seated right away. The service was rather slow but we took into consideration that they were very busy.... More

After driving past this restaurant multiple times, I did not realize it was a Mexican restaurant when we stopped and agree that I was confused by the theme inside compared to the logo and name outside. BUT...that didn't matter. The variety of food, from Mexican to traditional burgers, chicken, etc. was vast. Everyone ordered something different in our group and... More

Place is huge. Very nice staff. Tons to choose from on the menu. Mexican food very good. Best part is the speed that you get your food. Hot and delicious.

Seeing the name of this place you would never guess its a mexican/cuban food place. Had the sweet corn cakes for an appetizer they were wonderful. Crispy tacos for my main entree they were excellent

Great food, varied menu that should please most diners. Try a bloody Mary. Do it. Good service, fast seating. Most often comfortably busy without feeling crowded

I absolutely LOVE their jalapeño ranch dip! I could eat it on everything! I have always had good food there and staff is always great. I also like that Highland House supports the community, especially the Chinooks Wooden Bat Baseball Team.
