You may not think of getting a burger from a taco stand, but food blog What You See Is What You Eat recommends the cheeseburger from the James Beard Award-winning Yuca's in Los Feliz, California, because it shares close quarters with a family of meaty taco fillings:

The only thing that differentiates this burger from the one that you'd make on your grill is that your grill doesn't have decades worth of well seasoned and well worn flavors of asada, carnitas, etc seared into it. Yuca's cooks the patty on the same surface that they're making all the other meat fillings, so you get a patty that is the best of all animal kingdoms.

The cheeseburger is topped with ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, and onion. Aside from cheeseburgers and hamburgers, Yuca's menu includes chiliburgers, double patty burgers, and variations of all of the above. [via laist]
