I was served quickly and the guacamole is outstanding. Is possibly the best little real Mexican place around the area.

I had stopped somewhere near Frisco TX a week or so ago at another location and was impressed but did not know this is a chain and has more locations. My son invited me to lunch with him and was so gratified to find that he selected the McKinney Location. The food was consistent, great choice. The staff at both... More

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

Kids claim queso is the best. Chips and salsa keep coming. Salsa is excellent. Fajitas are great. Portions are decent. Service is... 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!
