Stopped for dinner on a Saturday night. We had a 15-20 minute wait. Our friends that live in the area said it was worth the wait. We were waited on as soon as we sat down. I believe her name was Alex, at least I hope I am close. She was great. Knowledgeable and friendly. Our drinks were never empty.... More

This place rocks! We arrived early -- around 6 for dinner. The place was packed already. Lots of families but it wasn't loud and the kids were all well-behaved. The menu is excellent; prices even more so. And the margaritas -- great!

This places uses lots of artificial preservatives, msg and low quality ingredients. Expect not to feel well after eating. Look Elsewhere.

After a long wait for the empty premises on Northcross Drive in Huntersville to be rejuvenated , La Unica appeared. My restaurant partner (and spouse) speaks fluent Spanish and has been to Mexico five times, She summarily described the menu as "Tex-Mex" suitable for the local palate, I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian and was pleased to see a list of...

Ordered a meal with shrimp and received a plate of onions and peppers and 3 small shrimp in the middle of the onions. When I asked " where's the shrimp? I was ignored. Never again will I eat there.

The new, much larger location is lovely. The service is attentive and friendly. The atmosphere vibrant and fun. The chips and salsa are perfect-- love all three salsas! This is a quality, family friendly restaurant whose food I dream about if I go too long between visits. It is truly delicious and you can tell that they really care about... More

There is a lot wrong with this new location. For a Thursday night at 7:45 there was a 20 minute wait that turned closer to 30 minutes. We were seated and it took about 10 minutes for the waitress to get our order and bring the drinks. The food came out within a few minutes; it is some of the... More

Recently went to the new La Unica with family members. First time ever there. The salsa was great but the chips were cold and had obviously been around a while! The food was bland at best; nothing I had (other than the salsa) was the remote bit spicy or exciting. This is obviously a family place with kids everywhere; but... More

Great service and food. The new location will allow for more patrons as well as full bar. My chicken fajitas were well cooked with plenty of chicken and veges. Sides of rice and beans were well proportioned. The salsa was spicy hot, be sure to add some of the just tomato sauce to dilute if you don't like it hot.... More

We had a very good dining experience tonight at La Unica. We went there while visiting family in Huntersville because it is one of their favorites. Food and service were very good, and I especially liked their fajitas. One notation: They are moving in the next few weeks to a new but close by location, so be sure to call... More
