This is a beautiful place with a large bar running the length of the left side of the building. We just returned from a month in Mexico so it was hard for them to equal what we had there, but they gave a good effort. The Guacamole Molcajete was table side prepared and and the Parquestio was excellent. The Margaritas... More

Here on only our second visit at Besito, it was a Friday night and Happy Hour was roaring full steam ahead. This looked like a lot of fun...however, we had a booth waiting and the revelry was by-passed. The booth nice and comfortable, off the main flow of foot traffic and set for 3. Our overworked, sleepy headed nurse KIDult... More

We ate there while in the area on business. On a Tuesday night in March, it wasn't very busy. We sat in the bar at a high top, which was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. The margaritas were excellent, and the food was very good. The enchiladas suizas were very good. NIce touches like sweets at the end... More

We went on a warm February evening so a lot of people were out. We expected to have a wait wherever we chose. We had an hour wait. It was odd that there were two tables open at the bar for the hour we waited. You'd think they'd want to turn those - perhaps they were being held for a... More

We stopped here early on a Saturday night, without reservations. Although there was nothing available in the dining room, we were seated at a table in the bar area. Chips and salsa very good (we added the tableside gucamole, also tasty). Fish tacos and the two fish specials we ordered all were very tasty. Service was prompt and pleasant. Looking... More

The drinks were guava and tequila which were outstanding. I had the steak special which was topped with cheese, guacamole and jumbo shrimp in a green sauce. Outstanding! My wife had the Mahi Mahi...

My fiancé and I stopped in for a celebratory birthday drink at the bar before our reservations next door. We had been here before over the summer and had a great meal.
