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

The food is OK but the place is very noisy. Same old menu and the food was warm but the plate very hot. Microwaved food I suspect. I had the Original Margarita and it was a glass of Ice essentially. When I had another and asked for less ice, it came 2/3 full. How embarrassing. This is supposed to be... More

Their cocktails are wonderful, their guar is outstanding. Their servers are personable and intelligent. Their main menu food selection, I'm not a great fan of. That being said, I know what I like, and I'll keep going back just for that. Keep it simple folks

We arrived on a very rainy Saturday night to meet some friends we haven’t seen in over ten years. Before going I read the reviews on various websites to see what I was getting into. So I pretty much knew it was not going to be an inexpensive meal and but at least most of the reviews raved about food.... More

Good food, excellent service, but very noisy and tough at times to get a table. Parking is a challenge and the check will be large My biggest problem here is the management and hostesses are SO full of themselves

My husband and I have frequently dined at Besito & have taken several friends/family but our last visit to the restaurant was nothing short of awful. We went on a double date & was super excited to bring some new friends. We had a 9:30 reservation which was our only choice 1 week out. We decided to get to the... More

I always enjoy dining out at Besito. The service is excellent -- almost as great as the restaurant's beautiful décor. I rated the restaurant very good rather than excellent, as I have noticed a sharp decline in the amount of avocado used in making the signature guacamole, and because my favorite dish of pork tacos with plantains is no longer...
