The pibil tacos here are just outstanding- incredibly juicy and bursting with flavor. This is a unique little taco stand- I don't know anywhere else that serves up food in their style. Simply awesome.

This place is definitely a must if you are in the area. The food is delicious, no seriously amazing! I always get the carne asada burrito and delight in every bite. There are small tables and chairs outside to eat at, and the liquior store across the parking lot is where I get my soda. Everyone is friendly and the service is great. Next time I go I will try the carne asada fries!

By closet, I mean it literally. Across the street from Albertson's on Hillhurst, Yuca's square footage of parking is ten times larger than the building (if you could even call it that) itself. It's family owned and has won many awards over the years for their excellent burritos and tacos. Los Feliz and Silverlake locals are known to frequent the place, along with the entertainment executive and celebrity regulars.

My favorite order has got to be their carne asada fries. Though they are a bit small, their bangin' taste has got you licking every last bit of of it. I never let a single minced onion escape my lips.

Since there is only 3 people working Yuca's at one time, (not including the sweet grandma that takes your orders and always spells your name wrong), the wait can be a bit long, but it's always worth it. The people that eat there are always friendly, which makes the ambiance quite un-Los Angeles-like.

There's not a Lot of variety this place can offer, but what it's got it's got good. People are right about the puerco pibil-- it's fantastic and the feature of the menu. It's a real fun place to stop and grab some food.

Pros: hey, it's in a parking lot.

Cons: might be nice if it could have a Little more shade and seating under it.

Machaca is my new favorite word. Stewed, stringy beef! In a burrito with some pinto beans. Warm flour tortilla wrapping it all up. About the size of a small envelope, not the rolled stomach bombs served up at Mexican McDonalds' like BJ

Pros: Convenient Walk-up Location with parking. Next door to liquor store for BYOB. Cheap.

Cons: Not open late. Not open on Sunday.

You get a lot of food for a good price. They make one mean Burrito. I'm salivating just thinking about them now. Only downside to this place is that it's only open 11am - 4pm. But if you can make it, you will be rewarded with delicious meats and tortillas

No they don't have chicken. The tiny shack/kitchen can only handle so many ingredients and cooking supplies, and pork is their specialty. All you need to know about Yuca's is the "cochinita pibil burrito". Get it, you will like it. Do not

The guys 1st review is so way off, either they're nuts or a competitor. The burritos have no grease at all, come on. Grease, that's funny. These are just great little burritos with tons of flavor with or without hot sauce. Lard a problem?

Don't let the stand in the liquor store parking lot fool you. We know New Yorkers who land at LAX and head straight for Yuca's. Jaime and Socorro Herrera opened the stand on April Fool's Day, 1976. There are burgers and hot dogs, but…
