Henry's Tacos

I recently found out about this 1960's taco stand in North Hollywood. I was visiting the Yarn Garden on Tujunga and had to park a few blocks away. Henry's Tacos is on the corner of Moorpark and Tujunga. I love the retro signage and cool mid-century shape of the taco stand.

I just had to try one of the tacos. Yup. L.A. - Mexican-style food from 1961. That's what they serve at Henry's. There are only a few choices...tacos, burritos, tostados, beans, rice and hamburgers. All menu items used the seasoned ground meat as their base. It's delicious in a home-taco-night sorta' way. This place will take you back a few decades, when the taco was considered exotic. I had one crunchy taco and an orange drink. The perfect snack!

Next door to Henry's is another cool looking old place with killer retro signage called The Star Lite Room. Must check that place out when I have an escort!

OOh yea, Henry's is good. I used to get a burrito on the way to choir, when I had to drive from S.M. 5:30 and choir practice was at 6:30 in Burbank. Now I have no good excuse to go over there...oh I know, becasue it's good!!!
