Many fans (and a couple of celebs) cried when news came down that Henry's Tacos would be closing its original location in North Hollywood. There was even an eat-in to show support, but regardless, the 51-year-old location shuttered back in January.

Today the slinger of gringo tacos and house made hot sauce reopens their new location, which is just a few feet away from the original. It took over the location where Studio Sub used to live.

Omar Vega bought Henry's Tacos from Janis Hood when Hood lost the lease on the iconic stand at the corner of Moorpark and Tujunga Avenue. Vega was the head chef at the stand for 21 years.

Thrillist reports that all the staples are still in tact, including gringo tacos, burritos, hot sauce, and a taco hamburger.

The new location is at 4389 Tujunga Ave., Los Angeles. Zagat reports that the old Henry's location is becoming another taco joint called Cactus Taqueria.
