La Unica is a best kept secret among locals who appreciate the great food and friendly service. The building itself is pretty unassuming, but once you’re inside you’ll be treated to fresh authentic Mexican cuisine. The chips and salsa are free, and the guacamole is...amazing. THe shrimp, chicken, and beef dishes are all amazing. It is clear that the staff are hard-working, friendly, and prompt. You won’t be disappointed!More

Have not been since last visit as quality of service and food has diminished. Even the nachos seemed stale and not as tasty as they once were. Much more competition in the area and now eat elsewhere.

Who would have thought such a fine Mexican restaurant in Monroe. We eat here every time we visit relatives in Monroe.

Great 👍 Mexican food 🥘, the tacos 🌮 are amazing 😉. My wife had the chimichangas, she loved them. My daughter had the flautas, she said they were wonderful. The chips were fresh and hot with 5 different salsa’s, queso and fresh pico de gallo...and they were all were outstanding. Service was fast and attentive.More

We have eaten here for many years and the last few visits the Chile Poblanos tasted vinegary, not fresh. Perhaps they are preserving in a vinegar bath which is carrying over to the final product.

My husband is a Mexican connoisseur!! He has to have a weekly fix!! He raved about the food here! Granddaughter needed the restroom when we arrived-when we got to the table I couldn’t believe what was there-every salsa imaginable and cheese! I’m into spicy my...husband is not-there was something for everyone!! He said the rice was the best he ever had-IT HAS FLAVOR. THE TACOS HAD ENOUGH MEAT (like at home), plus they had everything on them-not like the triangle where we live!! You folks are doing it right-thank you!! Sorry about the tip for Vanessa-it will be in the mail tomorrow. Only draw back-our granddaughter’s chicken tenders took too long!! But then she always thinks she’s famished but doesn’t finish!!More
