Besito was rated "excellent" by the New York Times with decor that embraces all the flavors and festivity of Mexican cuisine. Enjoy fresh, table-side guacamole and over 75 tequilas all straight from Mexico. Enjoy our amazing Sunday Brunch the best on Long Island and our exceptional outdooring dining / patio seating in the summer!

This is way, way above the cheese and ground beef Mexican food , this is gourmet Mexican food. A must is the table side Guacamole and the mixed drinks. The food is interesting and very flavorful. Their fish tacos are a wonderful appetizer .each dish is the best of its classification, meat,fish sea food....

Fabulous and abundant Mexican food that is the best we've had in a very long time. Fish tacos (3) in the appetizer are outstanding as is the crab cake which was loaded with crab. Dinner was Mahi Mahi and a tremendous amount and delicious and a shrimp dish which was also plentiful. Fabulous.

Best guacamole ever-made table side. Food is always consistently good and the service is excellent. Atmosphere is good and the drinks are great.

Goes well beyond the usual Mexican. Exellent guacamole made at tableside, choose the degree of heat. Both the appetizers and the main courses are well made and flavorful, no surprises. Comes with rice and refied beans also, and add fried plantains for a nice touch. The drinks are good also. After numerous meals here, I can say they are very consistent. I like the sauces, and usually get something with mole or pumpkinseed sauce. Nice seviche appetizer, too. The only drawback is dim lighting - they will give you a flashlight so you can read the menu.

Besito's was a breath of fresh air when it comes to gourmet Mexican food. We liked coming here often when it opened even thought it was pricey. The place is good looking and service excellent. The margaritas are made form scratch and don't use that "green stuff" you see at cheap bars. You pay a little more but you get a good drink here. the problem is the menu has not changed in years and it would be great to see it freshened up. it is a reason we don't come nearly as often. On the positive, it reminded me a little of a couple of upscale places I went to in mexico city
