This little shack on a parking lot next to a liquor store has an impressive plaque on their wall, however I was not that impressed. I had the carne asada and the cochinita pobil tacos and just found them to be average and expensive. At 4 and 3.50 each respectively, they were small and needed more flavor. There's a small... More

Have used them twice now, once for a small party at home, and just last week for a large non-profit event feeding 120 people. Always friendly, always professional, very easy to deal with. Quantities are spot on for the number being served. Quality of food is excellent -- witnessed by how much of it gets eaten. Delivery was efficient and... More

Well known for excellent Mexican staples. Perhaps no surprise, but they also make decent burgers, hot dogs etc. They are pretty fast and accurate with orders, and always friendly and pleasant.

We had beef and pork burritos and they were the best tasting I've had to date. Price was reasonable. Very little seating and it is outdoors. Luckily we were there at 1:30 and had no problem.

Definitely need to know about it but well worth finding. It is highly Zagat rated. If you like Mexican you will be hard pressed to find better food. Orders are written on a paper plate and served then on the same plate. I love the pork tacos. Yummy. We have been there numerous times and have never been disappointed.

It's a tiny little stand in a parking lot, but the food is amazing. I love the carne asada tacos and burritos, and especially the tamales. Even their hamburgers are amazing. And if you miss the hours when the stand is open, or if you want a warm and friendly place to sit and eat, go to their nearby restaurant... More

Fab, simple (in the best sense) fare- get there early or later after peak lunch period to nab a seat. Located in an (easy-to-miss!) small car park in Los Feliz, we loved the the carnitas and carne asada tacos with the no frills garnishes. Great burritos too- delicious!

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.
