“Great Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

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!

“Just "SO SO"”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

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. My friend ordered the #14 Burrito Dinner. We both agreed that both orders were filled on the short side of the brisket. There nothing special about the rice and beans. The restaurant didn't have many customers and the music was so loud that we asked them to please turn in down in order to have a conversation. The next time we need our Tex Mex fix we will go to Anamia's.

“Probably won't return”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Meh”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

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 on a Monday with about 20 people in the restaurant. Wouldn't hurry back.

“Tex-Mex but was pretty good..”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

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 out was fabulous was stewed Barbacoa. WOW! DELICIOSA.Coupled with Corona/Margarita I was happy for days.
