Good Mexican food.

The food is good and fresh, loved by the locals although there is a limit on seating. We visited for lunch and we all had second helpings! Don't order the tap water, it tastes weird but stick to the very good lemonade. Good value and tasty.

Sometimes I travel and try other burritos. Doesn't do any good. They all lack something and it is that special something. Maybe it is the workers in this little space performing magic. Warning: they do use cilantro but maybe cilantro haters could be converted with the magic at Yucca's

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.

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.

A quick stop for a burrito and lemonade. Beans and carne so tasty I will go back at yuca's anytime I'm around.
