Best Burrito's North of the Border

Yucas (prounounced You Cas) on the tip of Hollywood, and in Los Feliz, CA is serving the tastiest and some very creative Burritos along with their other specialties.
The little hut at their original location has been in business since 1974, and 5 years ago they expanded to a sit down place in Hollywood.  I've been enjoying their food for the past 19 years, so can vouch for the taste and quality.
Their Chile Verde as well as the Chile Relleno Burritos are 2 of my favorites, along with their great Tortas. Other great dishes are listed on their Menu page located here: Yucas Menu
Family run since their opening, it is still run by Dora, who oversees all operations of both restaurants.
On the site Dora wrote a little history:

"Mom’s dream of having a little stand where people would flock to buy her good Yucat√°n home cooking became a reality on April 1, 1976. Shortly thereafter Yuca’s received its first write-up by the Los Angeles Examiner’s Food Critic; it proved to be the start of an amazing adventure with food that has now lasted over 3 decades.

Originally, Mom and Dad worked with my brother, Jaime, who took to flagging cars down and offering them his innovative, “Try it you’ll like it or you won’t pay” promotion. Many people took him up on the offer. They all paid.

Over the years, Yuca’s has been fortunate to receive great press from various publications and media outlets in the U.S. and other parts of the world. Receiving the James Beard Award on May 2, 2005 was the culmination of the accolades received - an amazing honor in the category “America’s Classics” that put the icing on Mom’s dream.

Our greatest achievement, however, is hearing our (famous or not) customers say, “This is the best burrito I have ever tasted!”

If you are in Hollywood or any place near, one time of eating here, you will definitely return.
