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.

Laid back atmosphere. Great food. Lots of variety on the menu. Friendly service. Can't be beat for a local neighborhood Mexican restaurant! You know its good when there are always people there! The fast service makes for short wait times. Love this place!

Very good freshly made food. Avoided wait for table by eating at the bar. Friendly servers. Food arrived quickly on a very busy Saturday. Family friendly

We love this place! It's not fancy, great prices, great service and great food! It's always busy because of the value it offers. I've tried several dishes and have been pleased with everything. It's become our favorite Mexican restaurant in the area!

Being from California, its been hard to find decent Mexican food in NC. After trying six different Mexican restaurants in various NC towns we had given up on finding anything remotely close to the food in CA. We were urged to try La Unica as a last resort so we went in for lunch. The place was really packed but... More

we waited a very long time before Waitress/waiter acknowledged us, took drink order, etc. and this isn't the first time. Also we could tell we were being laughed at because we only ordered tacos. Don't sell them ala cart if you don't want people to order that way. Make them a combo and be done with it. I don't like... More

I've eaten at the old location before the landlord forced them to move to make way for Whole Foods but that's probably one of the best things that could have happend to them. Space is probably 100% more than they have which is good because the old place was busting at the seams. That said, service was still always good... More
