Legends of L.A. Taco Art Series #1 ~ Yuca’s by Hawk Krall

11:13 AM PST on November 2, 2015

We're kicking off a new series of art creations by some of our favorite artists which pay tribute to the legendary locations which define the taco lifestyle in Los Angeles. First up is renowned illustrator Hawk Krall, who you may know as the designer of our Taco Madness posters since 2011.

The first location chosen is Yuca's, which has fed generations of Angeleños authentic and homemade tacos from their two locations in Los Feliz and Hollywood. Always served with love, Yuca's original location has probably introduced more people to the taco lifestyle than any other stand in the city. The Herrera family participated in our first ever Taco Madness at Grand Park, and have always been huge supporters of our mission to celebrate the real Los Angeles.

Here is Hawk's statement:

I picked Yuca’s for the first installment of this series because it’s just everything I love about tacos and street food in general. A no-frills crazy little shack with the grandma posted up in front, weathered but not dirty, just one of those awesome spots you walk by and say to yourself “there is no way I'm not walking up to that window and getting myself a burrito immediately”. Just the straight-up essence of what a taco stand should be.

There will be a very limited amount of prints available of this illustration, if you're interested to get on the waiting list, please email
