My friend took me to the James Beard award-winning, unpretentious little taco stand for a late afternoon snack. We both ordered their Cochinita Pibil, yucatan style pork tacos. What can I say other than "this is an amazingly flavored, savory and tender pork marvel!" Affordably priced, limited parking, and swiftly served. It is well worth getting and seeing for yourself...

Food from the Yucatan peninsula. I'm in! This is the best mexican food in American hands down. Legit and authentic.

YUCCAS is an LA INSTITUTION and it is a must if you want YUCATECAN style food-NOT MEXICAN. You do eat in a parking lot, but that's part of the charm, though you could take out and go to Griffith Park near-by. The cochinta pibil is the dish to order if you're first time visitor.

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!
