Loved the chicken taquitos!

The adobo chicken taquitos were a delicious treat! Nice quality for the price. Certainly better than average if you're a fan of Mexican.

If you can get a reservation, do not pass this place up. Great food, service and value. The homemade guac is a must! Can not go wrong with anything on the menu!

We went here for brunch and was surprised the restaurant wasn't more crowded. It was Easter Sunday, so that may have been why they weren't packed, like they usually are. We were promptly shown to our table and a waiter quickly came over to take our drink order and ask if we'd like guacamole at the table. The guacamole was... More

They take the typical Mexican food and bring it to the next level. The best thing at Besito is their made to order at table side guacamole. And their Patron Margaritas are totally outstanding.

Huntington, NY is a mecca for restaurants, there seems to be too many to count; Besito is one that is always reliable for delicious food and drinks, great ambiance and friendly service. My family has been going there for many years, but our most recent experience was the Sunday brunch, which the restaurant just started offering. They have a special... More

The food is very good, the service hovers a bit (for my taste) but is very professional and knows the menu well. The guacamole is very good (but not cheap). One issue I do have is the lack of light.. They give keychain flashlight, which is fine for reading the menu, but not for seeing the food... Drinks are pricey... More

Had a afternoon reservation ( need one) and was seated on time and all four of us enjoyed some upscale Mexican food. The pork/pineapple Tacos were good but can be great if some more pineapple was added. Also the tortillas need to be a bit larger, smallest I have ever see. For a app that's fine bust as a entrée...

I go to Besito's in Huntington frequently and I always have a good time just for drinks or a meal. When it is nice out I enjoy eating at their tables outside.

Though we love ethe food at Besitos, it is veeery dark in there and the flashlight that they give you to read the menu is cute, but I would also love to see my food once it arrives.

Lovely experience here at this upscale Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. Staff is knowledgeable and attentive. Food is delicious and presented in a unique way. The sopa tortilla soup is my favorite. Also love the watermelon margarita. Have been here 3 times and have had a great experience each time.
