Every time we are in Indian Trail we always stop in for a Mexican meal at La Unica. The food is packed with flavor, great service, fast, and delicious. There are two other Mexican restaurants in walking distance, but we have never tried them. Why??? When you have experienced the best, why go anywhere else??? Salsa, mild is VERY mild... More

Tacos are very good, bean dip is very good. Usually quite crowded so don't go right at lunch or supper time. Patio seating is available too. Servers are friendly. Prices are very reasonable.

I had the lunch size chimichanga. It looked like it was a frozen item from their food distributor. It was made with puff pastry that was RAW, not a tortilla. Very disappointing.

This place has some great food for a reasonable price. They expanded to hold more customers and they're still packed at times....so call ahead about the wait time.

Came here for the first time based on previous reviews. I'm always nervous to try a new restaurant in a strip mall. So glad we did! Service was great, food was good, price was also very good! Will return!

Great place for Mexican food. We have been several times and have always been pleased both with the food and the staff.

It might be in a Food Lion shopping center but do not let that stop you. It is the best mexican food!!! Service is quick and friendly. The chips are good and the salsa is too but I find that the mild is too mild and the other one they give you is a bit spicy so I mix them.... More

This is a great place for Mexican food. Have been eating here since it first opened. Everything from Tacos to Fajita Texanas! The cheese dip is also great not just on nachos but on anything else that you order. Highly recommend if you want Mexican food and are in this area!

I have been going to La Unica in Indian Trail since it opened. Ever since the expansion and new management, it has not been the same. I came in for dinner and told the waitress it was a party of two. I was waiting for a guy to meet me, and then I was told I had to wait until... More

We enjoy the good food and always quick service. The staff is always friendly and you hardly ever have to wait since they expanded the seating area a while back.
