La Unica is a right of passage if you are from Lufkin. Everyone loves their tamales and their charro beans. I usually get a tamale plate to go which comes with 3 tamales, salad, Mexican rice & charro beans along with pico & salsa. Excellent!...More

Great for traditional Mexican food. Combo #2 plate is a must. Chips and pico are tasty. Not a fan of salsa, but many people love it.

Not great but not bad. Close to the hospital. Friendly staff. Stopped by for a quick bite. No wait at all.

Old school style...like I was in a village somewhere in Mexico. It does not matter what meal you order they are all good. I've been in meetings or functions where La Unica was the caterer and it was just as good as being in the...More

This is not a Tex-Mex eatery, but excellent real tasty Mexican food. They have the best enchiladas in the world!

Looks like a hole in the wall but has awesome, authentic Mexican food. Real Mexican - not Tex-Mex. Generous portions - open breakfast, lunch and dinner. We visit Lufkin once in a while and each time eat here more several times each visit.
