It's loud, it's fun and the Guacamole is sooooo good!

This isn't exactly authentic Mexican cuisine, more of a trendy twist on old classics...so if you're looking for cheap burritos this isn't the place for you....put that aside and it's pretty darn good!! Great table side guacamole steals the show...and the margaritas go down easy!!! Very good... read more

Excellent food. If you charge big dollars for Mexican food, I am going to be a tough review. They did a great job. Fantastic food. And not just the guacamole which requires fresh ingredients but no expertise. The main courses were excellent. I could do without the waitress asking me three times if I want a cocktail (at lunch). I... More

I can't say enough good things about Besito's. Anything I've ever ordered here is completely delicious. Especially love their guacamole they make right in front of you and the tres leches cake. Mole poblano is also excellent as well as margaritas. Always look forward to returning.

I always go to Besito in Roslyn but this was my first time at the one in Huntington. Needless to say I was not disappointed. The guacamole was still made table side, the Besito Patron Margarita's were delicious and the food was good. I had the Mixtos (steak, chicken & chorizo) skillet tacos and they were tasty and the steak... More

The "Signature" Besito Margarita's seem to be getting smaller and less potent, The "Signature Guacamole", is the same as it's always been with too large hunks of onions, but a fresh taste. The menu never seems to change and the "Server's favorite, Shrimp dish was a mass of mixed flavors and only so-so shrimp. Others at our table felt the... More
