really great food at a reasonable price! Margaritas and chips and salsa are great. Good service and get there early fills up fast.The cafe lalita at the end of dinner is a nice touch

A group of 17 of my family just walked in on a late Saturday afternoon and they were more than gracious to handle this group. We received prompt service. Waitstaff was attentive. We had dishes prepared at the table which the children really enjoyed. Another good thing for the kids, a big screen TV with childrens movies not just sports which I thought was a great idea. We all enjoyed our meal. My dinner was not hot and they were very apologetic and made it correct.
A very well decorated place-nicer decor than most mexican restaurants-will go again when in the area

I have lived in west Texas, DFW, and San Antonio.

Hands down San Antonio has the BEST Mexican food ever! Something about South Texas, they put flavor, passion, and spice into their food.

This place. Bland as ever.

Do not want to hurt their business but honestly would have rather eaten at Taco Bell because they have a FIRE sauce. = FLAVOR!

Born in New England, I am not a Mexican food aficionado. There's very little variety to choose from. Now living in Texas, there seems to be a Mexican food joint on every block. I've been to a few, and boy, have they all tasted great to me! Visited Cristina's on a Friday night and it was packed! Seemed to be "the place" for family parties and birthday dinners. There's a good size seating area indoors and a beautiful patio section outdoors. Note: Inside was a bit loud, pick outdoor seating if this bothers you! As we were only a party of two, we waited 20 min before we were seated. Others waited longer. We were greeted with free chips and salsa, both delicious. Our service was just average. The waiter didn't seem to know alot about the menu when asked, however, he was quick and efficient. For an appetizer, we ordered the Fiesta Sampler, comes with four samples of popular dishes (like quesadilla, tostada, etc). I did not care of 2 / 4 choices - tasted a bit bland. For dinner, I played it safe with an order of chicken tacos, rice and beans. All were fresh and piping hot. My boyfriend ordered a Platter: Stuffed Poblano Pepper (stuffed with shrimp, veggies, cheese) and Carne Asado, also with rice and beans. He said the pepper was a bit spicy, the shrimp was bit fishy (not as fresh as what we're used to in New England) and the steak was cooked just right. In all, Cristina's is a nice for families - very affordable, quick service, and good food.
