my wife and I go to Besito at least two or three times a month. Sitting at the bar takes us back to Mexico. The ambience is warm, the food is excellent, (high quality) and the service is second to none. Not to belittle other Mexican restaurants because there are so many fine ones', but Besito in our opinion stands above the rest.

Not my first time there. Service and food were great. Just a little too much noise from the chatting but I guess it is part of the experience. Overall great for casual or special occasion. Will recommend.

2nd visit, also the last. seated quickly with our reservation A+. Drink order taken and delivered A+. Food orders taken noting chips and salsa will be brought to table A+. Chips and Salsa were never brought to table, however all tables around us were getting them F. Food brought out: tacos(lackluster and flavorless, very fatty cuts of chicken), Enchiladas Mixtas (missing a few components of the recipe, small portion, zero flavor), Enchiladas Suizas (watery, flavorless - was more like a chicken soup then an actual dish) F. Server brought check, however took 25 minutes to collect check. Once collected, and credit card processed in :30 seconds, the check was then tossed onto the table.

Never disappoints. Empty when we arrived. Pretty empty when we left. Service always attentive, enthusiastic, and polite. Food always good. I order the same thing every time, and it never gets old. Table side guacamole always fresh and delicious. Can’t wait to go back

The food at Besito is always great. There service is pretty good, but they could be more aware of keeping chips full, especially for large parties. My one complaint is that their drinks are so inconsistent. I order the same drink, every single time. Sometimes it's awesome and sometimes its so watery, I just leave it on the table. I almost feel like I should order a shot of tequila, a shot of lime juice, a cup of ice and call it a day.

Celebrated 2 birthdays. The food was superb, as were the specialty drinks. Service was both friendly and attentive. We have a few food allergies and this was handled extremely professionally. Everything tasted great. We will return, as there were many irresistible options. I had the red snapper special. The fish was fresh and flavorful, and the sauce enhanced rather than overpowering the dish. As with any excellent meal, there was a long silence while we were enjoying our food.

I had an amazing experience! I had the spicy margarita and mojito and I give both a 10/10. I def recommend the guac & queso. The food was so good, I ate my whole meal, the steak quesadillas (and didn’t feel gross after) it was so fresh & tasty. Great service and good vibes!!

Our first visit, but not our last! We rarely go to Chestnut Hill Mall, but we had heard favorable comments
about Besito - so we went, and weren't disappointed. Not only was the service great, but the food was
thoroughly enjoyable - as was my Margarita!

It's approachable from the outside - and we like that - especially with Handicap parking readily available.

I'll be telling relatives and friends about what were experienced - and we would look forward to joining them - it's worth revisiting soon!
