We ate here for dinner on a Friday night. It was busy, but very efficient. The best Mexican food WE have found in this area. The wait staff was super, the prices very reasonable, and the food was excellent. They don't come better than this. The Carne asada with shrimp was outstanding. Highly recommended.

The decor is attractive, and the restaurant is generally busy. Especially good are the fajitas. A nice touch is the lagniappe of coffee liqueur offered after dinner if you have already had an alcoholic drink

I was so surprised and thrilled by my recent visit to Cristina's in Murphy. Went out with another Mom friend for a GNO, our waitress Yvonne was super nice and funny. I asked for something special, I wanted one thing off a combo plate without all the rest, easy enough, right? But then when I asked what was better, what... More

Taco salad was more like taco soup and I wasn't able to eat it. Didn't know anyone could mess that up. We had a set of twin babies with us and needed food on the scene ASAP. Asked for just a couple of soft tortillas with two pieces of chicken fajita meat but they charged us for a portion that... More

We have been here several times, the last of which the restaurant was a mess, including the bathroom. We checked out the patio first (it was a mess) so went inside. We were seated and despite the host "wiping" down our table (they have vinyl tablecloths), the table was still covered in stickiness and spills. I went to wash my... More

The service can really be hit or miss. You get chips and an individual salsa when you sit down. The food usually comes out quickly and is good. However, as I mentioned before, the service is hit or miss. Your little salsa cup or drink can remain empty for quite awhile or until the manager walks around. That being said,... More

The quality of the service is vastly dependent on who is working. When the staff is mostly teenagers or other younger folks, it shows in the service. I do love the food there. The draft beer is served very cold in frosted glasses.

Love to go here to eat. Best cheese dip and quesadillas. Great brisket tacos too. Located on the corner of a busy corner and easy to find. Murphy has a few good places to eat and all are smoke free!

Went to Cristina's Fine Mexican restaurant for dinner. Was quickly seated and given drinks. Ordered the Carnitas Tacos which were good, they tasted very fresh. Also, ordered the Queso Fundido. It was just OK. The cheese was served in a hot bowl but it did not melt all the way. The cheese around the outside was melted but the remaining... More
