We had a party of 6 go to La Unica after my nieces softball game. She chose where we would go for an early dinner, and this was her choice. Food and service was excellent.

Pretty popular place for lunch, casual dinner. Very fast and good service. Start with their amazing cheese dipping sauce and then a huge array of salsas, from hot to ouch!. My favorite is chimichanga. Good crowd.

My service was just five star. Food was good and cooked to order. So impressed with the array of condiments. They had more salsas than a Latin dance class!

The food here is much more authentic than what you find at the chain Mexican restaurants. Plenty of food and reasonable prices. It stays busy. Consider going at non peak times.
