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.

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.

This isn't your average Mexican restaurant. Everything is made fresh and served buffet style. It can get a little expensive when you start adding sides to your taco or taco salad. Such as sour cream, guacamole, extra cheese. But, even their rice and beans are...More

If fresh, quick and reasonable are your idea of lunch, then this place is perfect. Their menu is varried and all made fresh to order. Unfortunately, they only serve lunch so get there before 3 PM..

We always make sure to eat lunch at Pescados during our annual Thanksgiving vacation to the Highlands/Cashiers area. Food is fresh and consistently delicious! On this trip I ordered the Shrimp and Spinach Quesadilla. Perfection! Thanks again for another great lunch experience!
