Please...by far the WORST mexican food I have had for the value.
Tableside guac was the most tasteless guac I have ever eaten and honestly not a single entree or appetizer we had was flavorful..

Spare yourself and find another place...

The best way I can describe this is that it's inoffensive. The food is fine -- flavor is ok, not spicy or acidic, mainly just cheesy. Take someone here if they're the type of person who says "Mexican food seems exotic", to prove them wrong. Don't take foodies here.

Table near door. Cold breeze every time door opened. Drinks with minimal alcohol. Food not great. Waitress only redeeming quality.

We have dined at Besito on four occasions. Our latest experience was disappointing. We ordered tortilla soup,, roasted vegetable quesadilla and grilled chicken iron skillet tacos. The three dishes lacked effective seasoning (i.e., bland) AND were NOT served at the appropriate temperature (warm instead of hot). The service was more focused on selling guacamole tableside and alcohol (highest margin menu items). I don't expect innovative Mexican cuisine from this restaurant group (it is all about "standard" menu items executed consistently); but I do expect "good" quality food prepared and served effectively.

1 bartender barely looked up.. getting drinks was painful. She was nice but disengaged. Server had 5-6 tables all over. So ordering was painful.

Good salsa but it was a ordinary Mexican restaurant that’s trying to be fancy. chipotle quality but 3 times the price. Service was bad. Waiter was rude and once done with our chips he just took the whole bowl away and didn’t offer to refill it, same with the salsa. He rarely came to check on the table paying a lot more attention to the table next to us.

Would not be coming back to this place. Rather go to Taco Bell

It was my husbands birthday and he absolutely loved it! We tried the ribs because of all of the great reviews and the steak. The steak melted in your mouth and the ribs were exactly what we hoped for. It’s quite a large restaurant and was a very busy Saturday night and I was impressed how quickly and perfectly our food came out! Our server Juan was great! He was super friendly, very knowledgeable and had great recommendations on the cocktails! We will definitely be returning to this restaurant!

At last the lighting has improved... My salmon was very good as usual. My wife's chicken was shredded, not what she expected as compared to previous orders.
I had to wait with an empty water glass and no one asked if I wanted a 2nd glass of wine.
I would recommend Besitos and will return again...

Food and service are always good, however there is always an unpleasant odor coming from the bathroom area that comes into the dining room. This really needs to be addressed, seems to be a plumbing issue.

We are periodic regular Besito guests. For the first time we dined at Besito when it was at full capacity, on New Year's Eve. It was a little less quiet, but still a wonderful dining experience. The service was friendly and accommodating, and the food was great as usual. Besito continues as one of our "go-to" restaurants when we want to celebrate.

A very cozy atmosphere. We were greeted and seated promptly. Out server was excellent (thank you Arantxa.) We had guacamole made at the table, and a quesadilla and a chicken mole burrito - all were terrific.

Service was okay... some friends didn’t receive a drink until dinner came because i guess the bar ran out of something. Food and drinks were amazing as always... We did however find that after we left a couple of us were charged an extra 100+ dollars. I’m not sure how that happens but it did. Overall enjoyed the experience and will be back ...
