Besito Mexican - Burlington

Sundays: 11:00am - 9:00pm
Incredibly fresh food with an outstanding wait staff
Good food, friendly staff, nice Latin music quite enough to listen and talk.
Unfortunately this restaurant closed-- guac was great-- made to your taste at the table. All the food options were outstanding. I drive 30 minutes to go to the sister restaurant in Chestnut Hill
Nice casual Mexican at the Shops at Chestnut Hill. Not too special though - goof for a casual lunch.
Everything was OK. Nothing exceptional or worthy or a return. More Americanized Mexican than Mexican.
It’s closed open table needs to
Update we arrived and it was no longer ipen
Thanks for using OpenTable!

The restaurant was permanently closed 4 days earlier. Total disaster and embarrassment. Make sure your listings are updated.
Ok - way too expensive for enchiladas
I went to besito for a dinner and they have the best food best margaritas their guacamole is outstanding, excellent service, definitely we will come back soon.
I came with my family and I got the special “ veracruzan” it was the best fish I had in awhile . Great service .
Our server was inattentive and came to the table infrequently. The person making the table side quacamole was busting out of his buttoned shirt revealing his belly. One of our cocktails was made differently the second time. Definitely will not return
My mom and I come here all the time and it feels like it’s only getting worse!! The service was awful and the food lacked flavor. We didn’t receive the typical churros at the end. So Sad because we loved this place!
Best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. Perfect music . The guacamole was excellent and the food was to die for . I will be going back for sure !!!
The service was excellent and the margaritas were outstanding.I went there because I wanted a nice and enjoyable dinner with my wife and I wasn’t disappointed The atmosphere was great I will definitely be back
Not very impressed with food or service. Had been here previously and had a better experience. Only half full on a Saturday night. Overall disappointing
Let's talk about mexican restaurants northwest of Boston. They run the gamut, from gross all fried cheese pretend tex-mex to high end joints that aren't actually authentic.
Besito is a bright shining light in a sea of mediocrity.
The ambience makes you forget you are in a mall.
The waiters are welcoming and prompt.
The menu is unified and delightful.
The table side guacamole is fresh, well appointed, and ridiculously good.
I've lived in New Mexico, I've spent time in Mexico.
Besito is the real deal folks.
Very much enjoyed our meal at Besito. Good food and not a Tex-mex place. Biggest negative was that with the exception of our waitress, Julia, the staff was disinterested at best.
A bit high priced, and food is provided in relatively small portions. I hosted business guests, and the environment was good for business discussions. The restaurant seems a bit out of place, being in a shopping mall, but it's internal "identity" is more up-scale (again, small portions, high prices).
Service is good but not fast, so be sure you have plenty of time to spend for dinner.
This was my second time hosting business guests there, who were interested in Latin American fare. Both dinners were successful.
This was one of the worst meals I’ve ever had. I dined with my boyfriend. We ordered the table side guacamole, tortilla soup, vegetable quesadilla, pork tacos, sweet potato tacos, and street corn. The only thing that was good was the street corn, which I fully acknowledge was almost definitely frozen corn with some cheese on it. Everything else was a disaster. The guacamole should have been good, but it was very poorly seasoned. I asked three different people for salt to make it taste better. You would’ve thought I had asked for a bowl of spaghetti from the looks of confusion on their faces and the subsequent dashing around to track down such an exotic ingredient as salt. It took at least 10 minutes for it to hit the table, at which point we were all set on the guacamole. When the other food arrived, we were even more underwhelmed. As I said, the street corn was fine. Both the pork and sweet potato tacos were edible, but they weren’t particularly tasty. The flavors were weird and didn’t seem to go together. The tortillas were soggy, so they ripped. The sweet potato tacos had huge gobs of rubbery cheese that had a very unpleasant texture, like old, dried out mozzarella or raw halloumi. The vegetable quesadilla had more of the rubbery cheese mixed with other cheeses, but the real problem with this dish was the overwhelming flavor of canned mushrooms. Neither of us could stand to eat it. The tortilla soup tasted like canned Campbell’s tomato soup over tortillas. It had a strong metallic flavor and was inedible. For drinks, I got the spicy martini and my boyfriend got the mexcalita. I liked my drink, but my boyfriend’s was just okay. The pineapple and the mint really didn’t stand up to the smokiness of the mezcal, so it tasted unbalanced. The service was subpar. Our server seemed overwhelmed and we saw him maybe 4 times through the whole service. There were only about 7 tables sat in the restaurant, but maybe he was the only server. Regardless, we won’t be back.
used to be very good, delicious food. Was very so-so, menu changed, dishes not inspired.
Overall food we ordered was good, but they brought the wrong dish for me, and overall the service wasn't good. The wait staff seemed slow and confused.
Wait staff didn't seem very happy to be at work. The host led us to our table without as much as a smile or 'Follow me, your table is ready.' He vaguely gestured toward our table and left! Waitress was a little more friendly but still not chirpy. Didn't really seem to want to be there.... left a sour taste especially since we were celebrating a birthday.....
I love this place, the food never disappoints, and the service is always great.
They seemed too busy. Special occasion didn’t get us a nicer table or an acknowledgement. Waiters were nice but super busy. Steak entree didn’t come with a knife. Waited but never got one, despite asking waitstaff.
Food was excellent, otherwise would have rated much lower.
Amazing food and staff super friendly & accommodating!
As usual, Besito never disappoints! Food and service were both outstanding! Highly recommended for those who enjoy Mexican meals!
Waiter was slow. Pricey food.
Overall, great experience. Went there for a first date, one issue was service at the bar wasn't that great. Had to wait too long to get a drink. Other than that, great time.
Food was good but service was so-so. The waiter was attentive, but it took a lot to get a drink. I met 1 friend and got there before she arrived at the time of my reservation. The table was almost ready. I sat & the waiter quickly came & offered to bring chips/salsa & waters. My friend arrived before the water/chips and it took 15 min before the waiter returned to take a drink order and another 15 min for drinks to arrive. It took so long for the drinks that the waiter stopped by to get out food order in between. Shortly after the food arrived we ordered 2nd drinks which took another 15-20 min to arrive. The waiter was around, but each time he said the bar (right near us) was backed up, so my guess was they were understaffed.....however, most people coming in seemed to have reservations & there weren't people waiting to be seated. I would hesitate before going back, even though the food was good, it felt dragged out because it was difficult to get drinks and we only had 2 each. We paid the check & had 1 more drink at the bar and the waiter came by and expressed his disappointment- "oh you left me to get drinks here"- because we would have been waiting ages for the drinks.
I really like it here. Can usually get a table quickly which is a bonus and Open Table allows you to reserve ahead of time which is so convenient. Food is always great. I had Mahi Mahi this time and it was fantastic. My only gripe is they don’t give enough salsa. We had to ask for seconds and thirds and didn’t even eat all the chips.
not quite as authentic as we thought. guacamole is wonderful, some of the sauces good.
tortillas not enough of them and rather cold..
the grill dishes were not as appetizing once we saw the dish.
mexican rice has more tomato in it, but beans were good.
drinks and churros were great.
music could be turned down a little..
Lovely restaurant. The food is always great and the service excellent!
After waiting a half-hour to be seated after reservation, we waited another 20-25 minutes before someone recognized that a waiter never came to our table. It took getting up to go back to the host stand and pointing out that no one had come to our table. She offered to take our drink orders. A few minutes later, a manager comes over and offers us guac on the house. Okay, great. Thanks for paying attention now. A waiter finally comes over, doesn't even introduce himself and asks if we're ready to order. So we order. Bill arrives, guac still on the bill (which is fine--I don't care about that but don't say one thing and do another or back track on your offer). The host DID come over and apologize and gave us a $25 which was very nice of her, and I appreciated the thought and courtesy. I wouldn't go back to this place either way--I'd use the gift card at a different one. Don't go to this place; you'll end up wasting your time, money and effort. We wont be back. Ever.
Excellent authentic mexican food. Super friendly staff, sangria is yummy (and potent). Our new favorite restaurant.
Great bartenders, very knowledgeable and personable. Waiter recommended the ribs and they were fall-off-the-bone good. Mahi was flavorful. We will be back.
Attentive waitress good food
Absolutely love this place. Great food and amazing atmosphere. Never had a bad meal here. Would definitely recommend to anyone that loves Mexican food or wants to try something new.
Our server was very good!! Recommend some amazing dishes!!
Very enjoyable experience. Quiet enough to carry on conversation. Staff attentive to things like refilling water.
