Yuca’s is a classic - it’s been around since the 70s. Everyone agrees this tiny Mexican place is great, but good luck getting any consensus on what you should be ordering. Our favorite is the carne asada, but then we remember the cochinita pibil, the machaca, and the carnitas. There’s no bad order at this 10-seat little shack on the side of the road.
