Stopped for a quick burrito. the Cochinita Pibil Burrito had a great marinade on it. But needed some cheese. Carne asada burrito was decent too. Nothing to write home about but was filling.

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...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...More
