Already by noon on Sunday, more than 50 people, some of them carrying cardboard signs saying "Save Henry's" have gathered at the Studio City eatery.
A large rally to support Henry's Tacos has been spearheaded by Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul and will be paid for by comedian George Lopez, all beginning at 2 p.m.
Meanwhile, lines have been long and consistent since owner Janis Hood announced that the 51-year-old establishment must close by the end of the month. The owner of the land hasn't allowed any of the three prospective buyers purchase her family-owned business so it could continue in the historic location.
Saturday was particularly busy, from opening to close, again with people asking what they could do and how they can help.
Hood told Studio City Patch that she is overwhelmed by the response and the extra business. "It is very heartening to know that so many people have loved the legacy of Henry's Tacos," she said.
Hood, meanwhile said on her Facebook page that she will have to give her five employees a break on Monday:
I will be closed! We have to regroup and my employees have been working 12-14 hour days. See my post above. I am sorry, but your turnout has been overwhelming! Will be open Tuesday, 12/18 as usual. Thanks for your understanding!
Meanwhile, actor Paul announced:
Henry's was normally closed on Sundays, and Hood offered to expand their hours and stay opened on Sundays until the end of the year, but things have gotten out of hand, and long lines now snake down Moorpark and Tujunga.
Paul has tweeted:
To everyone telling me Henry's tacos is closed on Sunday I am here to inform you that is correct. But THIS Sunday they are opened from 12-5.
We must save @HenrysTacos from closing! Come join me for lunch this Sunday at 2pm!! Join the masses and eat some tacos!! Tell your friends.
Fans have then respoded:
And one fan said he's coming from Mars.
This all started when actor Elijah Wood retweeted a story:
Los Angeles institution, Henry's Tacos to shut:http://www.laobserved.com/archive/2012/12/henrys_tacos_announces_it.php … please retweet. very sad situation
Since then, celebrities and fans of the gringo taco stand have rallied their support.
Also, more than 4,400 people have signed the petition to "Save Henry's" even though Hood herself is ready to retire from the business. See the petition CLICK HERE.
