Been coming to Pascado's for years. This was the first place I ever had a "real" burrito made fresh in front of me with exactly what I want and with fresh ingredients. Yumm...I'm thinking about my next visit as I write.

We had some very good tacos, which we got for take-out, at this nice, clean, little place that is, I think, only open for lunch. Good price, good food.

Small and clean. Family friendly. You go to counter and order your entree item (taco, burrito, quesadilla, etc) and then tell the staff what you want on it. Good Variety of toppings. Hubby said the spicy pico was excellent.

The joint was jumpin' yesterday for lunch. Everything was fresh, hot and really tasty. The staff was VERY efficient and moved your order along very quickly. The beer was COLD and the burritos hot! Definitely would do this again.

NICE and fresh and great tasting food. Like many places in town, you go to the counter to order, but it works here, unlike some other places in town. Owner is sweet guy and he puts out great food.

We stopped in for lunch and were amazed with the burritos. Made to order with choice of everything, they were better than Chipotle. Good choice of soft drinks and a super clean and attractive restaurant. Great choice for lunch.
