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 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!

An unexpected treat. Food was what fast food should be - fresh, delicious, and quick at a reasonable price.

We have had burritos here many times. It is probably our kids favorite restaurant in Highlands. They equate it to chipotle which they love. Probably the best bargain in Highlands to feed a family good food.

This is my favorite spot for lunch. We eat here several times during each visit to Highlands. The food is fresh, delicious and served fast. The owner runs the register and he's always very friendly.
