    Cochinita pibil tacos. Trust me.

    It's a cash only joint. Get cash back when you purchase a cervesa at the liquor store next door. Order the burrito, taco, or torta conchita bipil- Yucatan style pulled pork.

    Rancho Los Feliz was officially recorded in 1843. It goes South from Travel Town to Western and Fountain Avenues, then West to the Los Angeles River, then follows the river North back to Travel Town.

    You can't go wrong here. I've never had such great tacos. And the prices are a relief after LA prices. Read more

    Go to the one on Hollywood so you aren't crowding up the best Taco stand in town.

    Carne Asada burritos are the best in LA but I personally love the carne Asada tacos

    Rajeev Dassani · April 3, 2011
  • Steven E.

    My favorite burrito in LA. I usually go with the machaca.

    Carna Asade burritos - delicious!

    Josh · April 19, 2010
  • Fernando F.

    Food used to be extremely good, now they use pinto beans instead of black on the chochinita. Tip - skip it! Food is bland now that the owner is not there, or not there as often.

    Burrito: kinda small, no rice, and not really that tasty at all. I think it's waaaaay over rated. Drink: horrible selection on drinks. Won't be coming back....

    40% more expensive and 30% less satisfying than the taco truck on hillhurst and santa monica

    Michael Mezzatesta · April 13
  • Jenn W.

    Cochinita or machaca on anything. Delicious. Cash only - no bills over $20.

    Go for carnitas or carne asada burrito with green chili peppers. Bring your own water. Weekly lunch spot.

    Carne asada or Machaca burrito with chili peppers. Bring your own drinks.

  • Los Angeles

    Yuca’s carnitas are delicious, but the standout taco is the cochinita pibil, a tender, mild pork stew that stains the tortilla with its orange, greasy goodness.

    Los Angeles · October 30, 2013
  • Pekka P.

    My regular is Carnitas Burrito once a week. No cheese, no sour cream, no fancy fillings. Just really good meat. With hot peppers on the side. Bring your own drinks.

    Pekka Pekkala · September 29, 2013
  • Joyce T.

    Get one of each taco- cochinita pubil, Carne asada, and carnitas. Then spend the rest of your life deciding which one you like best!

    Joyce Tamara · May 1, 2013
  • Tim M.

    Save the tin foil. They make a great hat.

    Tim McGraw · March 26, 2013
  • Tamara R.

    We had the carnitas and carne asada tacos; tamale; and cheeseburger. Not impressed. Barely any seasoning at all. So if that's your thing, go for it. It's not mine. (Cheeseburger was mostly lettuce. )

    Tamara Ross · March 16, 2013
  • Caitlin M.

    Everytime I come here I get a warm and friendly attitude. Everytime I go to the one on Hollywood, I'm given burnt food and a harsh tone.

    Caitlin Morgan · March 16, 2013

    Awesome burritos and tacos.

    I love this little shack! They serve the BEST mexican food in LA. Try the Carne asada burrito, any of their tacos (yes, they're that good), & the steak sandwich. IT'S ALL AMAZING <3

    Try the amazing cochinita pibil sandwich--the achiote-stained pork it's filled with is as messy as it is delicious: Read more

    Try the tamales when they are available. Delicious pork on the inside and the masa shell is just thick enough to hold it all together.

    Cory Jones · March 4, 2012
  • Eric L.

    Yuca's overcooked slapdash cheeseburger is a spartan yet glorious thing that'll awaken your childhood memories of cookouts and summercamp. P.S. The cochinita pibil torta is a sandwich dream come true.

    Eric Lane · October 30, 2011
  • Eric S.

    Carne asada burrito all the way

    Eric S · August 23, 2011

    Best macchaca around, in either a taco or burrito. Yumm

    Ashley Ross · November 19, 2010
  • Karl H.

    I was genuinely disappointed by their bean & cheese burrito...a sad affair with goopy whole beans, a dry tortilla and American cheese.

    Karl Haley · October 18, 2010
  • An X.

    I know it's a taco stand but the burgers are surprisingly delish.

    An Xiao · April 4, 2010

    Have Carne Asada Tacos and get a Mexican Coke from the liquor store next door while you wait.

    Lisa B · April 11, 2009

    Best cochinita pibil torta in LA
