High quality Mexican

I've been here twice. First time was a date. I remember the service took a veeeeerrrrry long time. However I remember the food was good. Second time was faster service. Food was fresh. Limited selection on the menu. Clean establishment. This isn't your average run of the mill Mexican. This is... read more

I ordered the Tacos with Carne Asada. I had to discard half the pieces of meat. I mentioned it, but the server didn't seem to care. I think a lot of people just go here for the drinks. I think many of them need to get inebriated so they can be more mellowed out when they get the final bill.... More

My wife and had dinner at Besito on a busy Saturday night and we were very impressed with the atmosphere, the service and the food. We eat out frequently in Huntington and find this place to be the best.

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.
