Description: Besito, translated as little kiss, strives to delight guests with the warmth of a private hacienda offering thoughtful details and cuisine. Besito was rated "excellent" by the New York Times with decor that embraces all the flavors and festivity of Mexican cuisine. Enjoy fresh, table-side guacamole and over 75 tequilas all straight from Mexico. Enjoy our amazing Sunday Brunch the best on Long Island and our exceptional outdooring dining / patio seating in the summer!

Had a delicious dinner. The guacamole was freshly made for the table and had very good flavor. The margaritas were delicious, cold and tart! The enchiladas verde has a creamy sauce with medium heat. My colleague had the skillet tacos which were delicious but different - think of fajita style tacos with the flavors melted together.
The complimentary mini churros after dinner were an unexpected treat - warm and yummy cinnamon flavor. And guests receive a miniature Mexican worry doll at the end of the meal. A thoughtful touch.
The Roslyn location is in a sort of strip mall but it didn't feel like it when you were seated. It has a large indoor dining room and a small outdoor seating area that we enjoyed.

We came for my birthday and I was very happy with the food and service.
I pre ordered some appetizers ( I had 13 people, 3 under 6). Nachos with beef and nachos without, guacamole mild and spicy. All made freah and amazing.
The main course were all hat and delicious. The grilled shrimp was very filling, the skillet taco were great.
Try the margaritas, the second one on the menu has a little spicy kick. If you like sangria this is your place,the fruit was drenched!!
Kids menu could use a plain rice .
Excellent place very kid friendly.

Expected a lot more based on the reviews. Other than the typical Mexican decor invoking fiesta time there was not much else. Food lacked flavor and service was below average. The prices however were high.
Perhaps a fun place to meet for drinks or celebrations? There was a lot of that going on.

This place existed in Huntigton for years (8+years) and has always been great. Very accommodating and very social.

Besitos was good.It was a step above the usual fare of tacos,burritos and fajitas. the service was very good and the presentation of the food was elegant you can see the chef took his time in the preparation of the meal and the way he served it on the dish.
we don't drink so I have no comment on how their margaritas taste. it's a restaurant to visit again without a doubt.
