This is my wife's favorite get away Tex Mex lunch place. The service is always grand. There are no end of wonderful lunch or dinner choices. Their margaritas are classic and the chips and salsa crisp and fresh. Enjoy a cool spring or autumn evening on their patio. Salud!

Christina's is always a good bet when your inner-Tex-Mex cravings take control. Service is uniformly good--efficient but never especially friendly with any server chit chat. But it is the food that we crave. The menu features more upscale Tex-Mex than your average restaurant and it is worth the few more dollars they charge. Nothing tastes warmed-up or microwaved.

First time at the McKinney location & loved it. My husband and I dined on the awesome patio for lunch. My husband loves the carnitas tacos and my favorite is the chicken tacos made with shredded chicken. The mojitos are the perfect accompaniment to the meal. The wait staff is top notch.

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...
