The atmosphere is nice at Besito; the service so-so. We ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand which was served warm. When we complained about it the response was take-or leave-it. We will not be going back.

We went to Besito a few years ago and we found it to be somewhat average. The decor is nice and nice location in town. Outside dining has charm on a nice evening. We went back last week and I still think it is just average. I am told my homemade guacamole is excellent. I will give them points for... More

From the Margaritas, guacamole to the fISH veraCRUZ AND ENCHILADAS carnitas you can't find a better meal. A bit pricey but the food is exceptional. Service is very good.

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner. I was really impressed with how beautiful the restaurant is. However, the food didn't "wow" me, as I've had better authentic Mexican food, for cheaper the price. I did LOVE the mini churros they gave for dessert. The server wasn't really around much. To his defense, the place was pretty busy. I... More

Great atmosphere, awesome cocktail menu and phenomenal entrees. On the pricey side for Mexican however well worth the wait (if there is one) and the money. Entrees are a good size and their sides are different and tasty. Great tamales.

I regularly visit this delightful Mexican restaurant. The food is delicious, the service is amazing, and the value during restaurant week cannot be beat. Besito's offers their complete menu during restaurant week, not just a basic fish, chicken, beef choice. The tres leeches cake is the best around. At the end of your meal you get not not, but two...

Food is great and the atmosphere is usually just right. I like the salsa, not hot but about a 3 of the heat scale. It is enjoyable but not overwhelming. I enjoy ordering a few assorted appetizers instead of a larger meal but that's only my preference. I like the variety it offers me. The portions are fairly generous so... 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
