Darned good Mexican food reasonably priced. Outside seating is limited and you purchase your drinks next door at the liquor store. My husband loves the burritos and I love the pork tacos.

Lived in LA all my life. Driven up and down Hillhurst many a time. Stooped at the coffee bean across the street a dozen times and never had I seen Yuca's! I knew to look for it this time as I heard it mentioned as one of LA's best burrito spots on KPCC a few weeks back. It didn't disappoint.... More

This isn't a place that's going to wow you with decor or service, but they will with their food. Terrific, authentic Mexican food. While on vacation during late June 2014, I took my family here for lunch. It's just a few minutes away from the major Hollywood attractions, and they have their own small parking lot, which is nice for... More

It's not fancy, your sitting in a parking lot, It's not expensive, less than five dollars. It is the best burrito I've ever eaten, hands down. No trip to LA is complete without a stop at Yuca's.

Not really a 'hole in the wall' more a wooden house in parking lot on Hillhurst ... this is incredible food...our family favorite Yucatan pibil sandwich ...but literally all of the food is delicious...years of cooking on the grill add a flavour that is impossible to replicate!

This great Mexican stand is located in a parking lot, however, the owners know their craft and their Carne Asada burritos are my personal favorite. yuca's on Hillhurst & Los Feliz "the stand" is where is at. Whenever you find yourself around this side of town when it comes to a good Burrito, taco or torta; this place is a... More

This is a great little family run taco shack in a parking lot! Open air! Very popular. Always a line. Many awards, and for good reason. A seasoned grill makes everything tasty - even hamburgers.

This is a small Food Stand operation on a busy intersection in Los Angeles...but well worth the hassle. At Yuca's you'll find the line long, but very fast. The reason it's so long is that the food is very good, portion sizes larger (burrito must have weighed 3/4 lb) and the price is right $. There is very limited seating,... More
