Good food, typical and not so typical offerings

Consistently good food - the place is very large, especially compared to it's previous location so you shouldn't have to wait too long for a table. Good chips and salsa, fresh and tasty, although I do wish they would put salt on them right when they come out of the fryer! Lots of variety can... read more

Pleasant atmosphere with excellent service. The staff was extremely attentive even on a Friday night while the place was packed.

Visiting with toddlers and 3 adults we enjoyed good Mexican food. Portions were good and everyone was happy with their options as well as the grandchildren. Having eaten at another Mexican restaurant recently - we only gave this an average rating. Overall - good but not at a higher rating compared to others we have visited.

The food at this restaurant is always so good. The ONLY thing I really don't like is that they serve shrimp that is NOT deveined! It's yucky and gritty and I wish they'd clean the shrimp! Other than that, good food and good service! If you like REALLY spicy salsa, ask them for the green salsa (they don't bring it... More

My wife first learned of La Unica via a Mexican co-worker. Since then, we've been a few other times by ourselves, and with my Dad who was visiting with us. Simply put, this restaurant offers high quality, authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices. The service has been very good every time we have visited as well. It also seems to... More

Like this place The food is good, the service is fast and it's reasonably priced. Favorite is Enchiladas Verdes and chicken fajitas. The wait on a weekend night can be a little long so be prepared to wait a bit. I'm not talking hours but it could be up to 40 minutes at peak time. Otherwise, a really good Mexican... More

Food is excellent, great variety of both authentic and typical Mexican food. Loved the layout, while full on a Saturday night, tables were spaced far enough apart we could still converse without yelling. Didn't feel cramped. Lots of natural light. Service was spot on, food served quickly, both hot and mild salsa with chips. The hot was muy pica. Highly... More
