Off the main drag this is great food and even better cocktails. My favorite is the "Pepino" Margarita. A chili lime salt rimmed short glass with a somewhat traditional margarita with a twist....of cucumbers that is. Their fruit margaritas are also flavorful, I believe we got real fruit in our happy hour specials! My first trip I had the Garlic... More

Best Margarita is all natural not mix - The food is super all made from scratch with a Cordon Bleu trained Chef - Staff is warm and friendly - like family. You will not regret dinning at this little Mexican "bistro".

First time there, will go back for the carnitas and enchiladas. Small but festive!! Service was good considering it was Cinco de Mayo and they were very busy. The tortillas were delicious, tasted freshly made and the salsa was tasty.

La Unica is a small, friendly Mexican food place with good service and home made chips. You can actually carry on a conversation in this restaurant since the music is not overpowering and the accoustics are right so you don't have to compete with every other conversation in the restaurant. Their taco Tuesday is great as are their burritos.

Even though we live in Murrieta, CA, we always want to drive the extra 10-15 minutes down the freeway to Lake Elsinore to get to our favorite authentic Mexican restaurant. They recently did a remarkable job of renovating the older style restaurant. It no longer is a bakery, but their food is to die for. It is very trendy and... More

We have never visited this site when it was a bakery, but we heard that the food is good and the place is nice. So, we decided to try it. We were delightfully surprised by the great food. Our meals were so delicious! Our server, Jennie, was so helpful and gave us the best restaurant service we have experienced in... More

La Unica used to be a small, simple Mexican joint and bakery with wobbly furniture and great food , at prices that were very reasonable, but no mas. It has been transformed into a wanna-be El Torito with lousy food , high prices and lousy service. You will love the new paint job and tables, just don't eat the food,... More
