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
