We dine at this restaurant often because the food is good. They serve breakfast all day which is great if you like that choice.

Not impressed. Everyone I know (for the most part) raves and raves about La Unica. I don't know why. The menu is overwhelming, for starters, and nothing I've ever had there leaves me wanting more-you know, wanting to savor the last bite? Not here. I...More

Huntersville's La Unica is usually busy, but the wait staff easily handles service pretty well. This is a high-volume style Mex-American restaurant. Meals are plentiful, & they serve the purpose. There is nothing special about the place: atmosphere, like the menu, is straightforward & far...More

We love this place. Always accommodating. If they mess up they fix it. Very good food. Great place to take your kids. We stop here on the way home from Carowinds every time we go.
