Cristina's is always reliable; their food is predictably Mexican favorites. It's not the very, very best in the world, but you can count on a nice meal with a reasonable price - typical Mexican choices with a few extras.

I often come to Cristina's for lunch. I love their Puffed Tacos and Beef Fajita Tacos. The chips are on the thin side and served hot, which I also love, and the salsa is fresh. The lunch menu portions are good sized. I usually eat half at the restaurant and take home the other half. There are plenty of other... More

The food was good and the menu selection is large. My only disappointment was the price for the lunch menu. I had gone with several adults and tweens. The price for lunch ranged from $10 and up. One tween ordered a meal that was over $16. Again, if this were dinner I would not think it was expensive.

The Queso to start is the best in town, creamy and tasty. The top shelf, strawberry, frozen margarita is fantastico. Finally having the tacos de brisket with a little sour cream is a perfect meal for two! Love Christine's in Southlake!

When you sit down to lunch you will certainly get your chip "fix!" Chips are served warm and the salsa is fresh. I always order an extra cup of the "HOT" salsa and mix it with the regular salsa. Chips are unlimited and they keep your basket filled. I ordered the lunch special # 15 Brisket Taco and Chicken Enchilada.... More

Nice atmosphere and great service but the food is the most important thing and it was below average. Mushy cheese enchiladas with minimal cheese inside and a greasy taste to the refried beans. Meat in the tacos al carbon was tough.

Chips and salsa good. Ordered table side guac on a Monday night with 10 people in the restaurant and got three scoops of guac on a plate. Shrimp tacos looked like they were left to warm under a heat lamp while other entrees were cooked. Even the avocado was dried out. Shrimp was spicy. Portions are generous. Service was slow... More

Being new to Texas, I was astonished that Mexican doesn't really mean Mexican. It means Tex-Mex. Being from CA where real authentic Mexican Restaurants are everywhere. It was simple, I told the waitress my dilemma so she said let me have the Chef fix you something that is not on the menu. So I said, "Let's do it!" What came... More

We (2 people) arrived and were seated promptly on the patio. We ordered nachos and a burrito at the same time we ordered our drinks. After an hour of waiting/searching for our waitress. She informed us that our order was never given to the kitchen. After looking around at all her other tables who were seated after us, but had... More

Have dined here too many times to count. Chips and salsa and very fresh. Queso is not velveeta--very good. There are many interesting things that we have tried through the years, but we mainly go for the $8.99 fajita special on Wednesday. You have to split this --portion of tender steak is huge, and I love their frozen Margaritas, not... More
