Recently stopped by Cristina's for a first visit. Nice atmosphere and the staff was friendly and attentive. The food is pretty average Tex-Mex and a little pricey given the average quality. Probably won't go again unless quality impoves.

We really enjoyed our lunch. The table side queso with fajita chicken was hot, bubbling, and very flavorful. My carne asada with shrimp stuffed pablano was fork tender, with excellent flavor. My wife's enchiladas were very good, and the portions were ample. So the only complaint and reason for not giving five points is the salsa served with the chips.... More

Average chain Mexican fare. The service was excellent, as were the Margaritas (a huge mug for $9.50. Unfortunately the food itself was nothing to write home about.

Delicious! We had three Fajita plate and one fajita taco plate (two chickens and two steak) all were wonderful! Portion sizes are big. Staff are very friendly. Margarita on the rocks was perfect! At the end of the meal then even brought out shots of coffee liquor on-the-house! Only complaint is it is expensive. $80 for four dinners and one... More

Went on a Monday night, hoping for a quick meal and couple beverages. The service was poor, slow and untrained. Ordered queso, never received. Waiter brought it at end of meal and stated it was on the house. The manager never came over to apologize. Waiter offered sopapilla's for bad service. It's a shame. I remember the food being good...

Yeah, I know- Avocado soup doesn't sound that exciting, but it was delish!! My friend had the Tilapia, my husband had the chimichanga and my MIL the verde enchiladas. Everyone enjoyed their meals and I have been searching for the recipe for the soup ever since. Had a bloody mary, which was tangy and the margaritas were huge! Definitely would... More

Stopped here for a late afternoon Saturday lunch with friends. It was recommended to us as a tasty, moderately priced tex-mex restaurant. It was that. Later afternoon was a good time because it was not too crowded. We ate inside, but they have a lovely patio also. Yes I would go back again.

Escaping the crappy Holiday Inn we were staying in, we located Cristina's, having found the name on a web search. It turned out to be a great family restaurant. Unbeknownst to us, kids ate free the night we were there, and the food was excellent. The service was great, and our waitress very friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We recently went to Cristina's on a weeknight and had a great meal. No waiting for a table and prompt, efficient service. The house margaritas are fabulous! I had the chicken enchiladas and husband had a chicken burrito. I loved everything but the beans and my husband cleaned his plate. We shared an apple pie for dessert and that was... More
