We're big Mexican food enthusiasts, having lived in AZ and spent a lot of time in NM, so we know good and really enjoy Mexican food. The place is clean. Nice staff. We ordered two plates and were charged quite a bit more than the...price on the menu. But, the real downer is that the food is incredibly bland. We don't necessarily demand food so spicy that it wipes out your taste buds, but our food was so plain and boring that a two year old would have eaten it and not complained. We were sad. We won't be back at this restaurant again.More

We weren’t expecting an order-at-the-counter restaurant to be this good, but we were so glad we decided to eat here! The food was great, and the staff was super friendly.

Wonderful friendly service. The cashier was kind enough to give us samples of their drinks. They were delicious and I suggest you try them all. Food was quick and good.

First trip here and I was very impressed. Had the California burrito and it was great. Friends I was there with had street tacos and quesadillas, all of which were great. Service was fast and friendly. Restaurant was very clean and well kept.

Absolutely loved the food! Going to this restaurant reminds me of the food we had in Guadalajara, Mexico while on vacation. Friendly service, huge portions, awesome selection of what typical Americans like along with choices you usually only see in Mexico. Good choice of drinks....Got there homemade strawberry drink. It was fantasticMore

My first trip to this restaurant was a good experience. I will go back when I want Mexican food. The only thing that would make this restaurant better for me would be to have a waiter take my order rather than having to order at...a counter and then sit. At lease the order was delivered to our table. The menu was extensive and the meal size was generous.More

I have eaten at all the Mexican restaurants in cache valley and La Unica is by far the best! Definitely worth the drive to Smithfield! I highly recommend their chili rellenos, the sauce and flavor are incredible! The owner is super friendly and the servers...and the service is great. Love the laidback atmosphereMore

The fajitas won this round. Mixed meat - beef, chicken, and shrimp. Huge portion. Came with 6 tortillas. More meat than veggies. Yippee (Could use a few more onions.) Maybe some jalapeño on the side? Nice char on the meats. Rice & beans were average.

This has become one of my favorite places to eat. I always like to hear Daniel say "Welcome my friend" to everyone. I have memorized a few phrases so I can order my tacos and water. It is very good food, good friendly atmosphere and...the price is great. I really like the 2 tacos with beans and rice or the smothered burrito with green sauce.More
