After I left the hospital for the 2nd time in 3 days, and after not receiving any meals at the hospital because apparently they don't have any room service there either, I was really hungry. They allowed me to leave after I agreed to wear all blue clothing, I assume because they wanted all of the red clothing for themselves, seeming as they all had red on. I said sure, of course! Blue is my favorite color! After realizing that the nurse who promised she'd give me a ride to my hotel lied to me, I started to walk for awhile and came across this place. Many of the people outside saw that I was limping and called me a crip, which I assume is short for cripple. I tried to tell them that I wasn't born this way, I had just been shot at the chicken and waffles place but they weren't interested. One man even invited me to the bathroom at his house to play with the blue water. So I walked inside and was seated by a nice gentleman who said that he liked my watch. He liked it so much in fact, that he took it after tripping me and smashing my face into a table. He also took my money, money clip, necklace, sneakers, socks, pants, and shirt. So I guess he liked all of my things. After this took place I tried to sit in the booth and order my meal, but that's when he informed me that the booths were for customers with money only. And he knew that I didn't have any. Because he took all of it. I would've liked to have tried the food here and I must say that the salsa that was hurled into my face as I left did taste quite good, even though it burned my eyes, it was not to be. I walked out and was promptly greeted by a basketball to the face. When I regained consciousness I walked myself back towards the hospital, and I was so hungry I didn't even mind when I got stabbed by the mailman when I asked for directions to the hospital. It's my fault for surprising him like I did. After I stopped the bleeding I was able to think more clearly during my walk, I even dodged a basketball and a boombox that was thrown my way, so I was sure that recovery was not impossible. All in all, I will say Unico Taco's has a compeling atmosphere surrounded by colorful people from the neighborhood who have surprisingly good aim. Stop by sometime, it's wonderful.

The tacos from here r delicious.They also have great salsa. They have the best horchata. The best part of all is that most of the locations are open 24 hrs. A perfect place to go after a party (:
