Besito Mexican - Tampa
Birthday for wife. Added that comment to the on line reservation, but no one at the restaurant even acknowledged it. Hostess was distracted with her smart phone when we came in and when we left.
Food was great. Service was, too.
Good Mexican food is getting hard to find in Tampa and Besito is one of the best. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time and were seated promptly. There were three of us and we shared the Queso Fundido appetizer. It is served in a cast iron dish to keep it warm and is accompanied by soft corn tortillas. It was delicious and there was plenty for all. We washed it down with a well made Patron Margarita. I had the Carne Asada Tacos for my main and the ladies had a Carnitas Enchilada and a Spinach and Cheese Enchilada. I also slipped in a Corn Tamale when no one was looking. All were beautifully presented and very very tasty. My steak was cooked exactly as requested and the Corn Tamale was the perfect partner for the spicy taco sauce. We will definitely return to Besito.
Best girls night ever. Delish food and service!!!
Really nice Mexican restaurant, good location. The tableside guacamole was really good, we couldn’t even finish it all it was such a big portion. I had the huevos quesadilla which was very good it came with three sides for dipping and a side of rice and beans.
I am never disappointed when dining here.
Overall a good experience for our first visit there but I I felt the food portions were small both figuratively and literally. The tiny corn tortillas they give you for your skillet were laughable.
Can't say enough good things. Fresh fancy Mexican. This was our second service and Victoria was FAN-tastic. We're going to ask to sit in her section every visit. The food was great, though if you're trying to avoid cheese....well don't! I wasn't a fan of some of the sauces, so Victoria brought me some different choices. Tableside guacamole was excellent. No domestic beer, but the Modelo Especial was just fine.
Service was top notch, loved the atmosphere, food was great. Table side guacamole was worth every penny.
Great fresh Mex. We ate early so the restaurant was quiet. Service was great. Tableside guac and taco skillets.
Our family likes going to Besito. We love the option to sit on the patio if the weather is nice or indoors when a little too hot. They have the tried and true margaritas; but, also some interesting ones to try as well. My husband like the Pepino style with the jalapeño. The table side guacamole is a family fave. The complimentary churros offer the perfect sweet treat at the end of the meal.
We have been to Besito many times before and love it but we were disappointed with the waitress. She rushed us and didn't expect us to order much. I had to get her attention to get an app. Then I ordered a chicken quesadilla for dinner and she asked me if I was sharing that with my husband and didn't expect him to order a dinner. She also didn't bring the dolls to us and I had to go find her after to ask about them. We come to this place for date night for a special treat since it is a little pricier and didn't enjoy the service at all this night. The margs and food were great but the service disappointed us.
Great service! Everything about the experience was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Been there before and had a better experience. Service was ok the pork of the tacos was a bit overdone.
Every time I’ve gone my food has been delicious! We ate outside in the terrace and the experience was amazing. I was there with my sisters and mom for a girls night out to dinner and a show! Perfect place to start the night with food and drinks! Our waiter was amazing too!
This was not our first time to eat at Besito Mexican restaurant. We have never been disappointed. The guacamole is prepared table side, so you know it is fresh. You can tell that all meals are prepared to order and they don't use packaged sauces or frozen anything. There is an extensive bar and the Margaritas are really tasty. The warm churros is the perfect ending to a perfect meal.
The New York strip tacos were deeLISH! Table side guacamole was superb.
By far our absolute favorite Mexican restaurant in the Tampa Bay are.
Amazing and authentic food that was incredible! Everyone so nice and such a lively environment!!
Besito is always consistent. Our server was great and came back to our table several times to check on us because we weren’t ready to order. She never forgot about us. We ended up just having a guacamole but left her a very large tip to compensate for not ordering in full meal. The guacamole was great but it was a bit noisy.
Server was great. Food came quick. As a nice touch they gave us a little bag of churros and some
Guatemalan worry dolls for our bed. :). Will definitely go back!
Good food, service was good but slow
Great service ! And awesome happy hour deals ! We had flautas, tacos , and the shrimp tamale.
Amazing service !
Besito continues to be a favorite- the BEST guacamole in town! On my last visit, The food did not disappoint! The restaurant was incredibly busy and terribly loud- louder than usual, to the point where it was impossible to hear each other. Luckily the food made up for it!
Food is so so fresh and fish is excellent
Great staff, good food, very nice experience. Live music was a plus
Have some pictures of the food. Customers like to have an idea of what their plate looks like. Especially men, we’re visual.
Another amazing experience at Besito's!! Consistently fresh and delicious food with great culture and service.
Excellent service, food came out fast and restaurant was full on a Friday night! Great atmosphere and food.
Service was slow and they kept getting my friend’s drink wrong. Also random wait staff were asking if we ordered something we didn’t. They need to improve their process to ensure diners get what they order without going to various tables to figure it out.
I love Me I can food. I eat it every chance I get. This was the best I have ever eaten. Also the waitress was outstanding!
Some of our group had been there before and highly recommended it. Our waiter, Daniel, was terrific! Friendly but professional. The food was exceptional and the price was on point. We will be back!
Dinner was great for my birthday. We’ve come the last 2 years for it since Mexican is one of my favorites. The reservation was noted as a birthday but it wasn’t acknowledged
Maybe it was just a bad night but we had reservations and still waited 15 min. Finally seated at a table that all four of us noticed had a bad smell. Service was not great. Food was only ok.
Good , but they have lots of authentic restaurants in the tampa bay area.
Everything was fantastic!
Bryan is amazing!!! Nothing less than a perfect guy taking care of us. The food... Wow! Carne Asada, Mixtas, enchiladas, oh and the Guac! Yum yum
Service was good, food was bland.
The servers were very attentive and the environment provided a nice experience to enjoy with authentic Mexican food.
