“Best thing in the Oxbow Public Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

In a large, covered building dedicated to the local food of the Napa Valley, this Mexican-inspired counter has an amazing selection of cheap salads, desserts, and unusual tacos (including lamb and ground buffalo). Very fresh ingredients, with many refreshing drinks including 4+ kinds of aqua fresco (we found the cucumber/lime to be a bit heavy on the first ingredient), and soft, sweet taco shells made of corn flour (most things seemed to be no-gluten). Lots of indoor and outdoor seating to choose from, right next to the great coffee place.

Tacos and Nachos were really not good. Fish tacos boring. Really disappointing. Staff Indifferent. Location had no charm.

“not impressed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

staff was indifferent at best and closer to rude, barely even acknowledged our presence and seemed irritated we were bothering them by being there.

food was way over-priced even by Napa standards, no sides (such as rice or beans) only a taco.

food was good, but not worth the price, attitude or the wait.

“I can't say enough good stuff about them”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

If it was only a taco shop it would still be great. We have never had a bad taco and this last trip we did non tacos and had salads and side dishes and they too were great.
The food takes a little bit because it is freshly made and well worth the wait.

“Excellent Fresh Tacos - at Oxbow Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

This is one of my favorite places for fresh tacos - the white bean is awesome and today went for the spicy lamb. Yummy!

You can either take it with you or eat there either inside at the Oxbow Market table area or outside on a nice day at their comfortable seating area.

Staff is always nice - service with a smile. They provide a buzzer (will buzz when food is ready) so you can walk around the other areas of Oxbow.

This is my go to place if in the mood for awesome tacos if in Napa. by the looks of it, there are always others there when I go also ordering.
