Good Mexican/Healthy food!

I recently dined here and we were a table of 4 people who ordered different things. The fresh avocado/warm chips is a must as they core out /crush real avocado's in front of you. I had the shrimp taco's/soft as a dinner entree( they give you an extra one as it's on the appetizer list- it was... read more

Delicious, Authentic Mexican Cuisine!!! We were with a large group and tried several dishes on the menu. We had shrimp tacos, carne asada tacos, queso dip and shrimp tamales for appetizers - I could not pick a favorite if my life depended on it. For entree I had chicken enchaladas and my husband had the iron skillet tacos - both... More

I've gone to Besito twice now and each experience was wonderful. The food is fresh and healthy tasting. In most Mexican restaurants the food is greasy or smothered in cheese. The food here is tasty while not over the top. I also love the environment. It has a very rustic Spanish feel. This is not the place to go if... More

We loved the look of the outside seating and so decided to give this place a try. We got a jug of sangria that was rather excellent, I had a salad with shrimp that was delicious, my dad and husband had tacos they said were great and my mum a quesadilla. We also tried an amazing dessert they recommended, tres... More

Start with a margarita at the bar, and move to table side prepared guacamole. Fresh ingredients and attention to detail make the difference. On beautiful sunny days the front doors and windows open for a street side fiesta!

Not sure if my Mexican is correct but this place does it right. Service can be spotty with inexperienced staff.

Traveling on business and looking for more "authenic" mexican food for dinner. This is clearly a popular place. Ended up working a few appetizers (guacamole, seviche and chips) for dinner. Outstanding all the way around. Liked the looks of the menu and plan on returning soon.

Besito feels more like a Manhattan restaurant, especially in the summer when plenty of twenty somethings are enjoying the house margaritas by the bar or at one of the sidewalk tables. The food is always good and more interesting than standard Mexican fare. Guacamole made table side is always a good choice to start. The house margaritas are made with... More

Not a big fan of mexican food but friends wanted to go as they said it had the best guacamole they had ever had. Well they sent the guac back three times as is was bland. I ordered the salad with chicken and it was like chewing on shoe leather. We tried to get our server(and anyone else who would... More
