We eat here a lot of times after meetings. Food is good and fast. They don't mind big groups of people either. That's really good when you want to chat. The food is authentic. I recommend the chimichangas. The ground beef ones are my favorite!

This was place was pretty good for Mexican food. You get 4 different Salsa’s, and cheese with your chips. I had the tacos they were good my wife had enchiladas and she said they were ok.

I am not surprised this is the #1 restaurant in Monroe. I grew up in South Texas, where the Mexican food is the best. This place can hang with the best of them, if not exceed them. I had chicken enchiladas lunch plate and I...More

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.
