This is the most wonderful taste of authentic cuban food I've ever had. Atmosphere is cafeteria style and in the back of a grocery store, but everyone is family oriented, polite, and they bring the food to your table. For a fresh, great authentic Cuban meal, come to La Unica; a great value as well (most meals under $10/person)

First impressions are so important, this little market with a restaurant in the back scared me away, I just got some black beans, which were okay. The cuban coffee was not. so when I come back, I will skip the cafe cubano and I will give this place a real try with a full meal

I'm Cuban and have been going to La Unica since I was a tiny one. The food is incredible, particularly the arroz con pollo, the chickpea soup, and the fried plantains (which come with pretty much everything). You get an unbelievable amount of food-- black beans, white rice or congri (beans mixed with rice) and fried plantains or yucca with your entree, usually for under 8 dollars. They also serve Materva, a yerba mate-based Cuban soda that is extremely hard to find here. It's an acquired taste, but, again, it's a delicious Cuban original. If you're going for chic, this is not the place-- it's a dingy cafeteria-style hole in the wall at the back of a small grocery store. But if you want the most authentic, unpretentious Cuban food in the city, this is without question the place to go. It's my first stop whenever I'm home in Chicago.
