“Good for a quick mexican meal but not fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Food is good, service is outstanding. Served within 5 mins of ordering. Atmosphere isn't anything to write home about but it is clean. Good place to take kids (and there were a lot there). So if you want a quick, reasonable Mexican dinner, this is the place but don't plan on impressing your date or plan on having a glass of wine or a beer because the restaurant doesn't serve it.

“Best local Mexican around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We are never disappointed...and you can't beat the tacos for the price! You can certainly spend a pretty penny on other menu items, but I rarely order anything other than the Tacos La Unica because they are so good (and cheap!). The staff is very friendly and the service is quick. What more can you ask?

“Delicious and Reasonably Priced, Always packed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

I'm relatively new to the area but this summer I went to La Unica twice and both times it was crowded and both times we had great food. The only downside to this restaurant is the lack of reservations and they don't have their liqueur license. Other than that, the food is very inexpensive and I couldn't imagine going any other place around for Mexican food.
