This was our first time in Cristina's. We wanted a snack before going to the movies. Sat at the bar and enjoyed a Fiesta Platter (half order) it was perfect. Delicious tamale, quesadilla, nacho, taquito along with queso and quacamole. Perfect. I had homemade sangria which was tasty and they served us complimentary coffee liquor. It was awesome and a...

I have used Cristina's for catering several times, and I highly recommend them. I ordered the fajitas--chicken, beef, and vegetable-and all were good. I ordered the lunch portion even though I was serving dinner and there were lots of leftovers. They are great to bring all that is needed for dinner-plates, napkins, silverware. Just be prepared for leftovers. I wasn't... More

First time to dine here. I ordered cheese enchiladas, with rice and charro beans. Plate was lava-hot, but enchiladas were JUST barely warm enough to eat, so I thought that was odd. Rice and beans were excellent as is the red sauce that comes with the chips. My husband ordered the Jonny's Pollo Tacos. While my husband liked them, I... More

Christina is a family favorite! We came tonight for a welcome home dinner for my husband and son. Our food is always fresh and the kids always have a great time.

My husband and I love to cozy up in a booth and try one of Cristina's latest and greatest dishes! The soup is to die for and the margarita's are even better!

Have been there before. Had a frozen margarita with chips and salsa before ordering. Ordered combo fajita dinner chicken and beef. Delicious as usual. The gratis chocolate liquor after dinner hit the spot.

We stopped here for lunch and it was really good. I had the lunch chicken burrito and it came smothered in queso and was accompanied by yellow rice and refried beans. The salsa was a bit bland for my taste, but that is a personal preference.
