The service was sub par. The food was good, but very over-priced. And we waited too long for it! There are better places for the value.

Besito has fresh Mexican food, freshly made guacamole at table side made to your taste. Margarita's are made with fresh lime juice. We prefer the classic on the rocks; other varieties are available. Service is excellent. Food is delicious. This is a must try.

Loved the energy at this restaurant the drinks are very good. The guacamole is freshly made and delicious. The chips and salsa are fine. The taco entrees are excellent as was the chocolate pudding dessert. Great service. Can be somewhat pricey but worth it.

Went for lunch on a Monday with my son and his fiancee. It was cool and comfortable on a hot summer day. The waitress was very good. The food and drinks were terrific!

This is really a great place with great food prepared well. Some unusual dishes; I had a fabulous lamb taco. Higher prices than the average Mexican restaurant but worth it.

The bartending staff on Saturday night was horrendous. They were rude and not friendly at all. Since I didn't eat dinner and only went to drink I will not comment on anything else because normally I love the restaurant. It's clean and welcoming.

Can't beat the tableside guacamole and the signature margaritas. Others in my party tried a chicken salad and the fish street tacos. They couldn't stop raving about. You can't miss the street corn!

Recently ate here early on a Saturday. Didn't have a reservation but was able to sit outside. The guacamole is outrageous and the street corn was a great side. You can't go wrong with anything you order.

Have been over a dozen times and never had anything short of a delicious meal and excellent service. Had to wait an extended period just once with a reservation, but did not complain as it had never happened before. Without a word, the Manager sent over, with his compliments, their amazing guacamole. Just a testament to their attention to detail... More
