If you love a relaxed atmosphere with a staff willing to accommodate a special needs diet then you won’t be disappointed! Juan, our waiter was exceptionally polite and accommodating. The food was amazing and allowed me to maintain my alkaline, vegan diet!

This is the best Mexican restaurant on Long Island. This is not your standard tacos and beans where everything tastes the same. Their sauces each have distinct tastes. Try the Sonora Ribs!
The wait staff and the managers Jose,Jose and Christian are the best and will treat you right!

The music, staff, service and smiles not to mention the delicious menu made the celebratory evening so enjoyable. The maitre d was amazing and kept checking on us throighout the evening and even brought our second round of drinks over himself! The wait staff were knowledgeable and kind and my spilled drink was cleaned and replaced on the house. Ole!!

Genuinely the worst Mexican I’ve ever eaten including Taco Bell. Even the chorizo shows they don’t do Mexican or even Tex mex well. Good for your grandma who is like oh mayonnaise is a bit spicy for me. The most bland food. Drinks are good. So don’t go to eat. Go to hang with friends then go down the street to any other other restaurants who are better. Also the slowest service ever.

We haven’t been to besitos in a while. The four of us wondered why because the food was so delicious! We will certainly go again. Just wish they could do something about the ambient noise. Maybe we will try to sit outside next time.

This was the 2nd time within a few weeks that I ate here. Both my friend and I started with the guacamole - a must have if you eat there. And then we both had the Mixtos iron skillet tacos. The meats that come with this skillet tacos are grilled skirt steak, chicken and chorizo. It was delicious, I couldn't finish it. I do have to say that I didn't care for the chorizo, not that there was anything wrong with it, but that's my taste preference only.
We ate outside. The tables outside can accommodate up to 4 people. If you are a larger group you will have to eat inside, which they also have some great tables by the large open windows, which is almost like being outside.
Besito also has a lively bar area. I will definately come here again.

Fist time at Besitos after hearing nothing but great things from friends and they were right! They have the best guacamole I've ever tasted. Our server was attentive and smiled the whole time. They even showed us how they make their guacamole with a little demo upon request. The food was delicious! We will definitely visit again.

The food was very good, however I was unimpressed with the service. It was terrible. We couldn’t understand the winter as he was speaking too fast and in half spanish. I waited about 15 minutes to get the drink I ordered. The waiter disregarded everything we asked and brought our food out at separate times. After this, I won’t be going back. Not worth the aggravation to order dinner.

Everything was tasty, we ordered four different dishes. The one drawback, however, is that the chef seems quite liberal with the use of sugar/sweetener in the dishes. Whether it be the marinade, coating, or sauces, they are all too sweet. Correct that and the food would be worth the hype.

This was my first time there with my fiancé and it was wonderful! The food was amazing and the service was great! It’s a little noisy but not in a bad way just very lively and that adds to how great the atmosphere is not too romantic but not too causal either, a great place for a simple date with great food would definitely recommend!
