Good service. One best guacamole made and served nearby your table. We were seated near the door cold air-not a great place to be sitting for early dinner in January.

We were asked nicely after an awesome meal and tequila if we would give up the table as the restaurant had a party of 12 to accommodate. We were kinda just chilling and didn't mind leaving. The manager was very nice and wanted to buy us a round after we thanked him and said we are OK he ran in... More

This was my second time visiting Besito in Huntington, came on a Friday night for my boyfriend's birthday. My first visit was much better than this one. First off, there definitely needs to be a third bartender. This place gets very busy, between people waiting for a table and the drinks that guests are ordering from their tables the bar... More

Besito is our favorite Mexican restaurant. Its located in the heart of Huntington Village. The menu has fabulous Mexican dishes. We tried the Tequila tasting and then opted to include a shot of their top Tequila, Clase Azul Reposado Tequila 750ml, which was not included in the tasting. The food and service are excellent.

This place has great Mexican food. They make the best Guacamole table side too. All the food was terrific and the drinks were good as well. Can't go wrong here.

Second time I've been here and it does not disappoint. I found that the food, décor, and service are well above average compared to other Mexican fare in this town. Do not pass up the guacamole made table-side -- really good. Can get busy around Happy Hour, so make a reservation.

Great place. Different than your traditional Mexican Restaurant. More upscale and different combinations of gourmet fare. My wife and I really enjoyed our visit.

My boy friend and I went on Wednesday and ended up with food poising the next morning. I'm not sure what item it was that got us sick but i am positive it was the food we have at Besitos due to the fact that was the only meal we had together that day. We ordered shrimp and steak tacos... More

All of my former coworkers and I wanted to get together and catch up. Very noisy and crowded table space. The rave of the food was not what it was cut out to be. Still looking for good Mexican food in my area. Parking is horrible. Make reservation
