Cristina’s Fine Mexican Restaurant – Trophy Club, Texas
It started with the desire to create something familiar, substantial, and lasting. And to us, that meant quality food and people. From the early days of Cristina’s, our commitment has always been to blend those two elements into something special so that when you dine with us, you feel like you’re getting the finest in Mexican cooking, you’re at home, and you’re with family.
When Arturo arrived in this country, he had very little in his pocket and worked tirelessly as a dishwasher and busboy. His love for the restaurant industry began while he was working as a hotel clerk as a young man in his hometown of Cuernavaca, Mexico. That’s where he found that serving guests and making them feel at ease came naturally to him.
In October 1986, Tina’s mom, Angelina, opened a small, 10-table restaurant in Eastvale, Texas. She named it Angelina’s, and we worked tirelessly with the rest of the family to expand into two additional locations. We were eventually entrusted with owning and operating the restaurant in Flower Mound, and in 1996 we renamed it Cristina’s, after one of our daughters.
Today, we are a 12-store restaurant group, with approximately 500 team members, many of who have served with us for decades.
No matter how busy our lives get, we have always believed it is important to slow down and enjoy a Comida casera a home-cooked meal together. We hope that Cristina’s will be that place for you and your family.
Fresh From Scratch
A true “comida casera“ experience isn’t created overnight.
The Vargas family, with roots in Central Mexico (Cuernavaca), make frequent visits back to capture the location’s unique flavor and essence — the cuisine, character, and culture — to bring back a new spark to our restaurants.
Whether it’s touring agave fields in Jalisco or meeting up-and-coming chefs in Mexico City, we go straight to the source to ensure we’re bringing you the highest quality foods and spices to create the most current and genuine cuisine experience.
The Best in Business
Working at Cristina’s is not just a job, it’s an opportunity to join a successful team and family. Many of our seasoned team members have started out as dishwashers and moved up to management. A few have even opened their own restaurants, with Arturo’s and Tina’s help.
If you’re a team member, expect to enjoy a challenging and rewarding work environment filled with opportunities, support, and encouragement, working along with others with the same optimistic mindset.
