This was my first time visiting Besito after hearing amazing reviews. My boyfriend and I chose to bear the almost hour long drive to try it anyway, and I’m so glad we did! The food was so flavorful, the service was amazing and fast and everyone was so nice and smiling. The tres leches cake and the tableside guac were the best We’ve ever had! We can not wait to go back!

Went for brunch on New Years Day. 2 for 1 margaritas and bloody Mary’s at our table! Always a great menu, service and ambience. Brunch had a real easygoing and laid back vibe. Perfect way to kick off the New Year!

The only complaint we have strangely enough if how strong the margaritas were. The food was all fresh and delicious; the table side guacamole was a bit on the pricey side but very good. The skillet tacos were sizzling - it was a different presentation that I was used to but very good. The plate looked smallish but was quite filling. Could have used quicker water refills.

Besito never disappoints! Always different, delectable, and abundant. We had enough food to last for two meals, as we had to start with the house guacamole. It was a moral imperative.
Nice atmosphere, attentive staff, delicious food... everything we look for in an establishment.

Our lunch entrees were good with their specialty guacamole for the starter. This is not fine dining restaurant, after all it is Mexican, but good food with excellent Margaritas. We enjoy coming here for lunch, in particular. Service always is good. If you like Mexican food, I would recommend Besito - the entrees are not your typical Mexican, but I believe this is the best in this category in the Huntington area.

Ive been coming to Besito for nearly 10 years, the food used to be amazing and the portions were generous, staff used to be great. I can’t say the same for what I experienced on Saturday. The food was rushed out and dishes were half the size! The guacamole was hardly enough for two people, used to be enough for 3-4. I typically would not take the time to write this but I was so upset with their server who cleared the table without even asking, we were still having drinks. Unfortunately after a decade I will not be returning.

Our experience was overall fantastic. Very impressed by the quality of the food. Only negative was we were sitting in the front and it was a bit too cool. Suspect this may not be an issue on warmer days.... Would go back again in a minute.

We love Besito, but on this visit the table side guacamole was not as delicious as usual. Very disappointed. And the service was a little slower than usual which is OK because sometimes they are too fast. It was a quiet night there too, empty tables which is rare. It could have just been an off night, or a new waiter, the main courses were as expected. We will be back and hopefully it will be back up to an excellent review.

Went here for a birthday celebration on Nov. 26th. Restaurant is beautiful and I have waited a long time to go here. My first problem was seating was right next to guacamole station in middle of floor. I couldn't even get to my seat and eventually had to move the station myself to be seated. Restaurants should learn not to crowd their guests in spots just to make money. I felt our table was too close to other people going by and the servers also going back and forth to their stations. It made the whole experience very uncomfortable. Specials were never mentioned to us. The only reason I mention this is because the surrounding tables were asked if this was their first time, and were told about the specials in drinks and food. Appetizers were good. Two of my guests had the El Dorado (fish) and the other one had Budin Marisc, which they both enjoyed. I had the Short Ribs which I didn't find as succulent and tasty as I thought it would be. They tasted pasty. We had a pitcher of Sangria to begin and Mexican Coffee at the end of the meal (both very good). Since it was mentioned in my reservation that it was a birthday celebration, I expected at least a Happy Birthday, but there was no mention of anything. Our waitress Leidy was very nice.

My boyfriend and I went to Besito in Huntington this past weekend for our Anniversary. Everything about our experience was amazing. We had a 7:15pm reservation and did not wait one minute to be seated. We also were immediately given champagne to celebrate the occasion. Also several staff members wished us a happy anniversary, I thought it was very sweet and made the night that much more special! Overall amazing experience with amazing food and staff as well.

Besito never ceases to impress. The Blood Orange margarita special was outstanding. They immediately took care of our littlest guest by bringing the baby avocado and banana slices to appease her and allowed us to have a great lunch without issue. The food is outstanding, the service is fabulous and we always feel special going there.
