This appears to be a local restaurant, as many Highlanders were eating here. The food was excellent. You order and they bring it to your table. Limited seating, friendly staff. Had the chicken, potato soup that was delicious.

We often take out of town visitors here for lunch on Saturdays. They are open most days from 11am to 3pm. It is a very casual restaurant where you walk up to the counter and place your order and then request toppings along the way...More

All the reviews are correct. This is a spectacular Mexican spot. Grilled fish tacos were wonderful, and my wife said her pork burrito was great. At least half the customers spoke mainly Spanish. Wish they'd had draft beer, but plenty by the bottle and can....More

Great fish tacos! Meats are high quality and everything was really fresh! A great choice in Highlands for a casual lunch.

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.

They take such care to have a restaurant so clean you could almost eat off the floor. Sadly, the food is a disappointment. Need to update recipes.
