Though many cultures claim to have invented food, it's safe to say the trend didn't catch on until the invention of the burrito. Enjoy the edible innovations of two cultures with today's Groupon to Yuca's, and Yuca's on Hollywood. Choose between two options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican and American fare.
- For $45, you get a party package for eight people (a $98 value).
Garning the James Beard American Classics Award in 2005, Yuca's has sated cravings for the quick and classic with a varied menu of authentic Mexican fare and traditional American staples. Celebrating their 35th anniversary at the Los Feliz location, the tortilla tycoons offer up a bevy of tacos ($1.75–$2), burritos ($2.50–$4), or tortas ($3.50–$4.25) with hearty fillings such as Yucatan–style pork, grilled steak, or shredded beef. Traditionalists who prefer their protein horizontal can partake of an array of patty-laden luxuries from the classic hamburger ($1.95) to the decadent double-chili cheeseburger ($3.50), and the humble hot dog ($1.40–$1.75) is a sports stand-by that hearkens back to the great Mexican-American cricket matches of old. Multiple guacamole gourmands can band together with a party package, providing two tacos plus rice, beans, chips, and guacamole for each of up to eight people. The breezy open-air patio at the Hollywood location allows for outdoor enjoyment and easy testing for tortilla-based parachutes.
