Reviewed 13 June 2010

so many new mexican restaurants are generic that i have generally lost interest. the food here was a big cut above the usual. it is right off the main street. i have kids and it was good for them too. it is a nice casual restaurant and a change from the others in the area, it is right next to the dirty dog, a new tavern that just opened.

“Geat food and service again”
Reviewed 12 July 2009

When the place first opened years ago it was really cool. it's just a fish taco place but the fish was good and fresh and the owner was spinning great LP's on his record player. He loved what he was doing and it came through in his food. It was fun to go there. Then someone else bought it and the fish went from being nice moist fish or beef to dried bits of overcooked meat that no amount of salsa could hide, served in stale tortilla shells. We stopped going there. We heard a new guy bought it so we tried it again. Big improvement! Fast service, the meats are tasty and moist, especially the pork, the gaucamole is good again too. Now all they need is a bunch of old LP'S spinning and they will really be hitting it big time.

“Unexpectedly Delicious”
Reviewed 21 October 2008

Pescados is a casual little Mexican restaurant with a simple menu - mostly customizable quesadillas, tacos and burritos. I don't usually think of Mexican or crave it out of the ordinary but my husband wanted to go (perfectly casual for our 2 little boys) and so to my surprise i had the most amazing Mexican food of my life. Wow, i will definitely crave the steak quesadilla and chicken burrito until i can satisfy my craving next year. I had no idea this place could be so great - we've walked right by it for 8 years without trying it. We'll never miss it again!
