I have always loved Cristina's, but since moving away 7 years ago, we don't get to eat here often. While visiting family, my hubby and I found ourselves near the Murphy location at lunch time. It was about 1:30 on a Saturday and it wasn't very busy. We were seated immediately and greeted by our waiter. I ordered a Sangria... More

Love to grab a quick lunch here. Close to work, great atmosphere, and always great service. They offer a large selection on their daily lunch menu. The restaurant is always clean and the service is fast.

We go here all the time. My husband and I, and our neighbors, enjoy going here at least every other week. The salsa is addictive, the tortilla soup is delicious, and the sopapillas are a must. The carne asada has never dissapointed, nor has the fajitas.

We love the shrimp tacos. They are in a sauce that is indescribably good. All of there food is really great. I cannot see how one can very far from terms of excellence for this place unless one does not like Mexican food. While there are several locations this is a long long way removed from what we think of... More

Decided to go here just before closing time as I liked it the last time we came several months ago. The margaritas were excellent and I had the taco beef salad and it too was very good, The place is clean and the employees are friendly but a couple of them were kinda loud and talkative. The only real complaint... More

We love this specific Cristina's because the staff is excellent, makes you feel at home and the chefs are so great at cooking what you want! The carne asada is always cooked perfectly and has been marinated so nicely! The entire wait staff is so nice! We love it so much that we have become regulars! So now, when we... More

I absolutely loved the new addition to the menu! Best Relleno I have ever had. I wish there had been 2 of them. The steak was great....but the relleno was the bomb! If you like hot salsa....ask for the HOT salsa. It is really good!

When we entered the restaurant the place was nearly empty. the staff pulled together tables for our large group in the worst location in the restaurant. After we asked them to set up a table in a more desirable location they acted insulted. Later as the restaurant filled up, all of the patrons were in large groups like ours. Being... More

I think the food at Christina's is just average. We went the first time and were not very impressed but decided to try again. The second time wasn't any better. It's not bad just not great. On the plus side kids eat free on Mondays which can be helpful if you have children. If not stay away on Mondays as... More

Being a chain, location always causes food to vary. We've had OK experiences at this location and some not so great experiences, and one or two standout meals. The management is always quick to address an issue. However, I would rather see overall improvement than having to take a chance each visit. The salsa and chips are always good. The... More
