Whoa: Long lines at Henry's Tacos on Sunday


Celebrities such as George Lopez, Adam Carolla and Elijah Wood have rallied around the Henry's Tacos cause, and there's a group. The result is a very long line outside Henry's on Sunday afternoon. The line stretched down Moorpark Street. "2 blocks long and growing," says a poster on Facebook. Photo above from Gary Leonard, below from Facebook.

Owner Janis Hood already announced that Henry's must close for the day on Monday just to give the staff a break. The Studio City taco stand has been around 51 years and has a lot of nostalgic fans. The landlord recently raised the rent by a lot and Hood announced that he also was blocking her attempts to sell the business, so she said Henry's would close down at the end of the month.
