The table side guacamole lived up to the hype I had heard; it was fresh and delicious. For lunch, I ordered the pesacdo (fish tacos) which were served a little differently than I've had at other restaurants. They were pretty good, though there were more corn tortillas than I needed, so I just ate the filling. Outside dining was full,... More

Highly recommend the table side guacamole and also the sangria. Decor is very authentic and not the typical tacky stuff you see at many Mexican restaurants. Food was also very good.

I've eaten at Besito on multiple occasions- definitely get a reservation! The food is worth trying but they are inconsistent with their dishes- sometimes it's awesome (perfectly cooked large shrimp one time, rubbery small shrimp the next- not worth $26!!)sometimes it's not. The guac is always good and the after meal churro and worry dolls are a nice touch. Worth... More

Whether you are having their delicious table side guacamole or their signature margarita, Besito always serves authentic Mexican food. Such a great vibe around the bar, outdoors and in the dining room. Extremely friendly bar staff.

they excel in table side made guacamole, spiced to order. The margaritas and tequila selection is excellent. I would go classic in your entrée selection...sides are great as well

Fun open air Mexican centrally located. I like the food but I love the Guacamole. My best visits have been when I'm not too hungry. Stop in and have some Guac with beer and finish off with one of their tequilas from a comprehensive collection.

Nice place, but noisy, pricey and a little bit pretentious restaurant. It became kind of a yuppie place in Huntington, but it is more like a Tex-Mex type than an authentic Mexican restaurant. My husband and I went there when it first open years ago and we were not impressed. More recently we re-visited it with friends, who just love... More
