great nice service, excellent food, guacamole was the best I've ever tried, they give you the recipe if you wish (so don't hesitate to ask), tried to make it at home but never could reproduce the great taste at Besito

Both Besitos ( Nassau and Suffolk) offer the tops when it comes to Mexican. They are not capable of producing a bad meal. All the food is fresh and served piping hot. The guacamole, which is prepared table side is the very best and it can be adjusted to the tastes of diners. The steak fajitas are superb as well... More

Sadly, I am told that this is one of the best Mexican places on Long Island. I really hope that's not true. The food was bland and uninspired overall. It was a busy Saturday night and we had reservations since we went for my daughter's 21st birthday and so there was no wait time for and it was quite crowded.... More

We have been here a few times. If possible avoid Friday and Saturday nights, as it does get crowded and the service is a little slower. Midweek was nice as the service was great and the restaurant was better lit. The food is delicious but a little on the sweeter side. The guacamole is a must but be careful not... More

Always busy and the staff can too busy to be very polite but the food is good. The room is pretty tight when it's full but that's a good sign right ? I'm gonna give it another try ..third time will be a charm

We used to really enjoy this restaurant... until tonight. On a positive note, if you are looking for a modern, trendy restaurant then this restaurant would meet your expectations, visually. Unfortunately, we were sorely disappointed by the food. Our appetizers were average at best (that is putting it generously) and room temperature when they arrived at our table. Our fish... More

We have eaten here numerous times and never had a bad meal....or just a good meal. It is especially a good deal during restaurant week since they open almost their whole menu. Our server was Trevor who was very professional. My only complaint would be that upon seating, he was at my table asking if I wanted drinks. I noticed... More

For our recent Anniversary we chose to go to Besito's restaurant in Huntington Village, New York. The meal was exquisite, the service top notch and the choices were not your typical Taco Bell local platter menu. The specialties involved mixed Burritos with various items such as fish of all kinds, pork, beef, chicken etc. The fried corn as a side... More
