The salsa is weird, very sweet. The appetizer was good and the tacos were ok. The women's bathroom was dirty. Lots of paper towels on the floor and none in the dispenser. Would not eat there again.

We are within a mile or so and this is our regular go-to Mexican restaurant. The food is good Tex-Mex with good sized portions. The margaritas are really good!

Best time to go is at lunch. Lunch menu is great. When we went, there were only two servers and one was also the only host. Needless to say, service was a lil slow, but the food was decent.

Very likely this was the best enchiladas we've ever had; and making that statement after growing up 90 miles from The Border. It was all in the sauce... muy pefecto ! !'

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

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

Always a solid meal here - took our 4 kids and there is something for everyone - kids eat free Monday and Tuesday (as of July '16) and was a pleasant surprise. Table side guacamole is very good. Kids claim queso is the best. Chips and salsa keep coming. Salsa is excellent. Fajitas are great. Portions are decent. Service is... More
