Popularity of Santouka

I'm just wondering if what I had witnessed today is the norm or is this a recent phenomena (perhaps due to a media story that was run about them lately)

I don't recall it ever being this busy

I stopped in at 1pm and the line had to be at least 25 people deep to place an order at Santouka.
It stretched from their counter out towards the last checkout stand of the grocery store by the front entrance.

I also noticed people with their food were jockeying around waiting for open tables.

I grabbed a bento to go and was on my merry way but I would like to know if this is the norm for prime lunch hours now.

If I make recommendations to friends about Santouka I want to know if I need to stipulate a time to go as well.
