“Tastiest Mexican Food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Like other reviewers I have been eating at Christopher's for many years. Their burritos are jam packed with tasty morsels. I am no longer a meat eater, but their grilled meats are the best! Their fajitas come to the table sizzling, grilled to perfection with the best onions and peppers. The salsa fresca varies from no spice to a bit of a bite. Even though I prefer the "no spice" times, it's still the best salsa I've had. When I want an affordable meal that is delicious, this is where I take my guests.

“Wonderful mexican food”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

Christopher's Cafe is notable for the fresh & healthy ingredients used for cooking. The dishes are light yet very tasty. The Santa Fe and Fajita Taco salads are remarkable, with the burritos and Fajitas also very good. The chips are made in house and are among the best.

Reviewed 23 April 2012

I have never had a bad meal here, eating in or take out. It is very fresh and well prepared, especially anything with PORK. Have the burritos, quesidillas, and tacos.Great specials and very freindly staff. Enjoy a margaritta or an import creveza.
