Good Lunch Place!

A busy January Saturday in Highlands and all the places to eat are packed. Lucky for us, we found Pescados. No line and the food was good. You order at the counter and tell them what ingredients you want on your order. Prepared right there in front of you. Nothing fancy and probably not authentic... read more

Pescado's has been a "fixture" of Highlands Mexican food for many years. Our recent visit did not disappoint. From the nachos to burrito's, to the broad range of drink options, Pescado's stays true to it's model. I like that you can customize everything you order, much like a Subway sandwich shop experience. And, as Highlands eateries go, this one is... More

I mistakenly thought that this was a real Mexican restaurant; it's one of those places like Mo's or Salsaritas where you go through the line selecting the ingredients you want on your taco/burrito etc. The two women who prepared our food both seemed a little annoyed that they had to get up from a booth and take care of us....

Went for Mexican lunch and a beer. I had a steak taco and Ann a steak quesadilla. The ingredients were behind a glass pane and it was hard for them and us to hear. The steak was kept warm in a steamed metal container and way over cooked. The hot salsa good and the jalapeños fresh. They got our beer... More

I'm a local of highlands and eat here at least once a week. The ingredients are always so fresh and the staff is always very friendly. Pescados also has very nice prices compared to others in highlands.

Think Moe's or Chipotle only better. We both had burritos. No complaints. We wanted some place to grab a quick bite, and this was exactly what we were looking for.

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. We turned down this street and were so glad to find this restaurant! Great food, great service, great prices!!! My blackened tilapia burrito was excellent, made even more so with the tomatilla salsa... More

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.
