Henry's Tacos signs and menus already history


Henry's Tacos served its final customers before closing last night. By the time Gary Leonard got over there today, the period signage that a lot people liked about the place had been taken down. Same with the old menu boards above the front window. The signs reportedly will be stored by Tommy Gelinas, creator of the Valley Relics website. That is according to Allison Martino, the curator of Vintage LA On Facebook, who was mistakenly identified by Studio City Patch as the interim keeper of the Henry's sign.

The owner of Henry's Tacos, Janis Hood, closed the business on Saturday after failing to find a buyer who could make a deal with the landlord. Hood says the business, which opened in 1961, will be turned over to a longtime employee to operate at another, as-yet unknown location.

Below, the signage as it looked last month at the corner of Moorpark Street and Tujunga Avenue in Studio City.
