We enjoy this place for lunch with a margarita and nachos. More like a bar than a restaurant, but cozy.

It's name may be translated into English as "The One," or "The Unique." I think it's well merited. Smaller than its friendly competitor across Main Street, Guadalajara, La Unica has a menu to match as well as a truly outstanding bar. Tequila tasting, anyone?

went in for a breakfast burrito, ended up staying for a full breakfast, the smell/aroma in the kitchen was too tempting, then they remodeled the place but prices remained somewhat the same(no complain from this corner); next time I come in, I am planning on bringing friends and family over, perfect place for great food and a fun time!

This is a beautiful restaurant with excellent service and excellent food. It's nice to have a local restaurant impressive enough in decoration and food to take our out of town guest. It's a sit down, full service restaurant with a bar with many delicious margarita combinations. We will definitely be back. Top notch!

You wouldn't know it but La Units is a small but superb eatery in downtown Lake Elsinore California. Though small, the service is top notch and feels much more upscale. The best part is that the food is just about perfect. Fresh, properly seasoned Mexican food, with authentic sauces I might add, have drawn me back multiple times. Week days... More
