Cactus Taqueria #3 Takes Over Iconic Henry's Tacos

New, 25 comments


After Henry's Tacos' prolonged battle with the landlord of the former shack in Studio City, popular Hollywood outlet Cactus Taqueria is taking over to open a third location. Henry's moved just down the block on Tujunga, allowing room for Cactus, a purveyor of tacos, burritos, and tortas. The Vine Street fixture has a hefty Yelp following and a slew of slightly more 'authentic' offerings compared to the gringo-fied crunchy tacos at Henry's.

The construction crew on site looked to be cleaning out the decades-old stand, adding a fresh coat of paint all around. It'll likely be a quick turnaround before this intersection becomes a popular spot for late-night tacos, though neighborhood support might be thin initially after the ousting of Henry's. In the meantime, it looks like Henry's classic Googie marquee is getting a permanent home at the Valley Relics Museum in early May. [Eaterwire]
