One Adam 12: Code 7 at Henry's Tacos

Sunday's scene at Henry's Tacos in Studio City included actors Aaron Paul, Elijah Wood and George Lopez, plus City Councilwoman Jan Perry, taking her candidacy for mayor to the corner of Moorpark and Tujunga. Newbies all. About 1969 or 70, officers Reed and Malloy came by for dinner in Adam-12. It's possible this was the episode where they also shot it out with the bad guys in the parking lot of the legendary country-western club The Palomino on Lankershim, but the show filmed in so many locations in the Valley it's hard to know. Check out those prices — 35 cents for a taco — apparently this was before the Henry's menu began listing "taco burgers." You can see the neighboring Starlite Room neon sign in the background.
