The food here is wonderful- and the restaurant is large and clean and colorful. The staff is very friendly and food is quick to arrive. It's typical Mexican food, but the atmosphere is better than average. Fun place to grab some food!

Besides being reasonably priced, La Utica offers some great tasting Mexican food. The service has always been outstanding every time we go. We've gone a few times with our son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. The servers - especially Luis - have always made them feel welcomed and special.

Great Service - good food and good prices. The menu could have been more thorough however. Good location - out of the way. Expansive menu and authentic Mexican food - good atmosphere.

Great Mexican food. Service on spot. Fast, courteous but not over bearing. Great atmosphere. TV's at the bar if you are looking for that.

Authentic tacos are my favorite but we have always walked away happy no matter our choices. The staff is always very friendly with the exception of 1 or 2 that obviously were having a bad day. We try to stop in every week or two and would recommend this to all.
