I usually love Besito and recommend it to everyone that I know! However, I went here last night for my birthday and was very excited to share the guac with my friends, but they informed me that they were all out of guac. I was extremely disappointed, as I always look forward to getting the guac when I visit. I found this to be unacceptable, and I did not understand why they couldn't run out and get some avocados at the store to make it through the rest of the night. I was very upset and hope that they have all ingredients next time I visit.

The food wasn’t all that good. The food quality does not match the price. First time for everything but definitely wasn’t one of my favorites.

The wait staff is always nice but it always takes so long to receive our drinks and the bill. Drinks were brought after our meal was served and only after we asked for them twice.

good experience! Have only been to the besito on long island in the past. Gave the MA location a try and it was very good! the food was good as usual. our server was great but it was very slow. Likely because he was busy, which is understandable especially since places are getting back to normal with covid. Hopefully next time the service is a bit quicker but other than that the watermelon margarita is to die for! and the crispy shrimp tacos are fabulous.

We love Mexican food and we live on the cape are choices are limited and the food is O ok. My son lives in Brookline and we try to find new places to eat when we visit and being his 30th birthday they made it a great day with a great meal.

Thank you

Food so so

Guacamole- not as good as usual. Did not make in front of table. Lacked the taste of cilantro and Lime - tasted like JUST avocado mashed

Waiter was good

Drinks reasonably priced

Service was very good. The outdoor dining, although it was near the parking lot and a bit noisy, was under a covered ceiling which protected us from the sun.

Outdoor seating is great, except when the delivery trucks park out in front and the noise and exhaust become a problem. I wish something could be done about this.

Mexican food must taste like Mexican food, even when the restaurant is located in an upscale mall charging upscale prices. The service, atmosphere were lovely, as were the complimentary chips and a tiny bit of salsa that preceded the meal. In the age of Covid-19, I could even overlook the $13.00+ for guacamole made to order as opposed to made at the table for $10.00 just a couple of years ago. The lunch meal itself, however, had no discernible seasoning such that the black beans tasted like they came from can to table--with topped with white cheese. These were for a table of three, so when the lunch arrived, the three full-sized crispy corn tortilla fish tacos of my imagination turned out to be three street sized wet corn tortillas with cold fish totally without taste for $17.00. Let me be clear that it was not the cost, but the lack of taste-not even enough to say they were really good or wretched--just blah. Since this was my second visit to Besitos, I hoped it would have improved over time. But it was more like "gringo" than Mexican food, still.

Even though the menu is now limited I trust this will end soon. The food is very good, but the last 2 times the Guacamole wasn’t like it used to be. I know preparing at the table is out for now, but this time it seemed prepared well ahead of our order.

Not the typical Best experience. Server was polite, but service overall was lacking. Food as good as it always is. Not sure as things become a little more crowded, whether or not it's impacted staffing at all. Didn't seem like the usual number of people supporting the dining room floor

We had a part of 6 and were told we had 90 minutes which was fine but it took waiter nearly 20 minutes to get our drink/appetizer order. 90 minutes is fine if service is quick. We were then rushed through dinner and we would have had more drinks if we had been asked,

We absolutely love this place! The food is always on point and the service is excellent, as it was this past visit. This was our first trip back since our outdoor visit last summer. One of the main reasons we go here is for their margaritas, which are on the pricey side. I have never had a bad margarita at Besito before, until this most recent visit. I ordered 2 different types of Margaritas and my husband order yet another one from the menu. They were all not very impressive. If you're going to pay $12-$14 for a margarita, it better be really good. I was very disappointed and not sure if we are going back until they figure this one out.
