We loved this place at the old crummy location, and this new location is even better. Yes there might be a wait at prime time on the weekends, but what do you expect? That really just means that the place is doing great. Our waitress had a party of about 20 and after a longer then normal wait to get... More

The location and restaurant itself is fine. Clean, friendly. However, the food is not that great. I was not impressed and thought maybe it's because I am use to authentic mexican food living in Phoenix. The salsa was great but everything was just ok. Staff was very friendly and service was fast.

11:30 ish Stopped to grab a quick early lunch.... Service was horrible sat for 10 min and had to ask for someone to take my order. There might have been about 15 tables seated . Ordered vegetable fajitas and an avocado delight. A different waiter brought me a wrong drink order and walked away. When my food came to the... More

We have only been there once, about two weeks after it opened. Friends had raved about how good it was at the old location. It was very crowded, and we decided to sit at the bar rather than wait for a table. After ten minutes, no one had said a word to us, like "We're pretty busy and will get... More

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area! Margaritas are top notch and I have not had one bad meal here!

I definitely cannot say enough great things about this restaurant. They have the best Mexican food around and their staff is so friendly and quick. Love the Tijuana burrito and the enchiladas Verde!

I never visited the old location, so I have can't compare the two. Ordered a Patron margarita. Their sour mix was too tart for my liking. They need to add some orange juice to tone it down. I had the California Burrito with chicken. The chicken was cooked on a flat-top griddle, not a broiler. The chicken was a little... More

Good food with a variety of Mexican dishes that will fill you up. Service is quick for lunch or dinner, and the prices are reasonable!

La Unica went from a small Mexican restaurant in a strip mall next to a Subway to a full fledged dining experience in a bigger eating space. This is your typical Mexican fanfare and they don't have a lot of "crazy entrees" that would attract a magazine to cover their tapas or tacos, but with that being said, their food... More

The review title pretty much sums up our dinner at La Unica. The menu was pretty typical, the service was just south of mediocre - no one ever checked back after the meal was served, and the food was OK but nothing to rave about. We probably won't return.
