Our Story

The History of La Unica Mexican Restaurant

La Unica Mexican Restaurant first opened up its doors as "Taqueria La Unica" in Monroe, NC. Then in June of 2002,  the La Unica concept and menu was redefined to what it is today. Starting out in Concord, NC and then later expanding to Indian Trail, Huntersville, Harrisburg and now Uptown Charlotte. 


When the first location opened up its doors in 2002, the family had one goal in mind, to provide an authentic, enjoyable dining experience to the community. Through the years, the restaurants have remained a family business that has been able to grow with the help of our managers, employees and the love and support of our customers. Everyone who has been apart of the La Unica team and our customers have become part of the familia. 

We are glad to continue to serve a unique and authentic food for over 20 years in the Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas. We believe that honesty, dedication, and experience have helped us become masters in service and quality.
