Besito Mexican - Burlington Ratings and Reviews
This is my third time here, food is always amazing, great drinks, server wasn’t very attentive, didn’t have our drinks for a while including water. My husband and I were going to order dessert but she took forever to come back to the table and by the time she did, she handed us the bill.....
Service was slow despite an off hour - very early for dinner - with plenty of waitresses and waiters hanging around. Happy hour pricing only applies at bar, we discovered. Drinks were quite pricey, and they were pushing a "special" margarita for $14 - top price - a lot to pay for a drink that was mostly ice. Meals were artistically prepared but mostly sauce and not much meat, for prices higher than many other Mexican restaurants.
I had dinner on Saturday and Everything was awesome, I always come with my wife and children because we love everything and our kids are always welcome, the manager came to our table to see is everything was good and he gave flash lights to our kids, that’s was a nice thing my kids were so happy, the decoration looks so authentic and the food also, the service that they provide is unbelievable, starting from the table side guac until the end with churros and worry dolls. This place is awesome. Thanks!
My son and I had been here before and were looking forward to Lunch at Besito's. This was a first time visit for my wife. We all loved it. Service was prompt and courteous. The table-side prep of the guacamole is always fun and it is a great app with the warm corn chips.
Whether trying Mexican for the first time or a long-time fan, give Bestito's a try.
We have eaten at Besito several times, The food and service has been great every time. The guacamole, hand-made in a cart by your table, is excellent, as is the food. I tried the budin de mariscos (sea-food pie), which I've almost gotten several times before. It was up to the usual Besito quality.
Despite our group going on a busy Saturday night, the manager and waiters went out of their way to accommodate our party of 10 so that we could all dine together. The drinks and food, including the appetizers, were exceptional in flavor and presentation. Not only was the food great, the service was equally as good. The other four couples that joined us all commented on how good it was and how that they can't wait to go back to try some of the other entrees.
We had a 6:45 Friday night reservation at Besito. We were seated promptly. Service was excellent throughout our meal. The food was very good quality and tasty without being too spicy. I am not an expert on Mexican food but it seemed fairly authentic to me. The decor was very nice and its location in Burlington Mall was convenient. My only complaint was that it was very dark - they could use better lighting .
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our first dinner at Besitos. We would definitely return. Our server was friendly and helpful explaining the dishes to us. Our guacamole was prepared fresh at our table and was very good. (We were given our choice of how spicy we wanted it.) I had the excellent Camarones Jalisco, which were delicious -- just the right blend of spice in the sauce and sweetness in the sweet potato (?) puree on which the shrimp were served. My friends were happy with their dinners too (salmon and chiles relleno). Our only disappointment was the coconut custard dessert, which didn't have much coconut flavor and came with a sweet topping that seemed artificial. Otherwise, everything was great.
This was our first time at Besito and we will certainly be back! I went there with my three girlfriends to celebrate a birthday. Our waitress was incredible! She was super friendly, experienced and just a pleasure! The food was so fresh and the drinks were delicious too! We will be back!
It was for a birthday celebration, I had asked them to bring a dessert at the end of the meal with a candle and the person I asked said they always do that for birthdays. However, the end of the meal came and they brought the check without they bringing the dessert with the candle
We were SO looking forward to trying this place- as everyone we talk to says how wonderful it is! The service was SO slow and the waitress was not very attentive. She was extremely pleasant, but walked by our table numerous times and not offer us drinks when we clearly had empty glasses in front of us. The table was too small- so our meals, waters, (empty) drink glasses, and side order couldn't fit- so she took away our empty glasses and didn't ask if we wanted another (when we tried to ask her for another order she was no where to be found). The food was bland and small for what you pay. My husband didn't find his meal too bad- so we MAY give it another try-But not for awhile.
Great Burlington spot. With so many options popping up in the Burlington area, this is still worthy of a slot in the lunch rotation. Super tasty Mexican, table side guacamole is always a good call and they give you warm churros before you leave.
If you want Mexican, this is a GREAT spot.
We ordered table made guacamole, medium spicy. It was inedible because it was so spicy. We asked for a redo and asked for mild. The mild version was a bit spicy but much more tolerable. A bit too much cilantro for my taste, but others in my party enjoyed it. We were a party of 6 and most everyone enjoyed their meal. The food is not cheap here, but the server was friendly and the cocktails were decent. I often have less of an inclination to eat at a restaurant in a mall, but this one is okay. Above average offerings but again, be careful about how spicy you can tolerate your food.
Crowded Saturday night. Reservation was for 7:30, but closer to 8 when seated. Tableside guacamole was made to the ladies preferences, and was throughly enjoyed. Main courses were quickly prepared, and were tasty. Service ebbed and flowed. We we not rushed, but could have used some attn at times. Bill was reasonable for the quality.
We have eaten here many times. The food and service have always been great. We do try to find a quiet corner, trying to steer clear of the bar area, which can be noisy. This week, we ended up across from a family group which sometimes got a bit boisterous -- just the luck of the draw, though.
Good food, a little different than your average Mexican, good service.
2 comments - in an effort to make sure everything was good, the staff checked in with us over and over - so much so our conversation kept getting interrupted. It was too much.
Also, an order of soup was not brought until we asked and then the meal showed up a second later.
