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

This place hasn't expanded in all the years of serving good Mexican food. Our friend had been anxious to try Yuca's and he was surprised at how small the famous taco stand was. But, once he ate the cochinita pibil tacos, he was sold. I went for a very satisfying machaca burrito and my wife liked her carne asada burrito.... More

Being Mexican, I have had some of the best Yucatan food cooked by my grams when on vacation to the Merida area. This is super authentic and better! Have the cochinita pibil - in what ever shape rocks your boat: Taco, burrito, torta... Splash a few drops of the "Yucateco" green hot sauce and you are off to foodie heaven...... More

We had heard about this restaurant on the Travel Channel while we were in Chicago. So when we got to L.A. we decided to see if it was as good as reported on TV. It did not disappoint. I had the yummy pork tacos. My husband had pork burrito and my son had Yucatan pork burrito and a beef burrito.... More
