Napa Locos Tex Mex --Have you tried it?
I haven't seen any mention of Locos Tex Mex on this board. My MIL (who lives in Napa) discovered it, and we have been there several times with her. She likes it because it is moderately priced and tasty. I like it for the great chips and salsa, and I have enjoyed the fish tacos (grilled fish) a great deal. I was underwhelmed by the chile relleno the time I tried it (canned anaheim chile, american style cheese). Third time I tried the brisket tacos, which were an interesting combo of barbecue and Mexican, I probably wouldn't have it again. There is a choice between whole black beans and refried pintos, I prefer the black beans. I also like the location, it is behind the opera house, and they have a nice patio right on the creek. There is public parking behind the building. Service has been friendly but not very fast, which has been okay with us because we are usually catching up on family, and also, more time to eat the great chips. I think it is worth checking out for a casual meal in Napa if you are relatively local. Not a destination restaurant, obviously, but nice location and some tasty food if you are not a Mexican cuisine purist.

Thanks for the report. A little about the owners
They seem to have a happy hour ... Tuesday through Friday from 4-6 p.m.The specials include $1 off all beers and select wines by the glass, with special appetizers.
Also, there is no corkage fee here.
This sounds interesting ... "Adobo-marinated chicken breast; slow-cooked chili with hot Louisiana sausage and smoked Applewood bacon, simmered for hours with cabernet sauvignon"

re: Junie D
That's right. Since I am coming from out of town, I find Napa confusing under the best of circumstances, so Locos was no harder to find than anything else in town. Something about town with rivers always seems to make them hard for out of towners to negotiate. I used to spend a lot of time in Santa Cruz, even worse, a river, the ocean, and hills! Plus every street seemed to be named after some form of water (Bay, Ocean, River, Water, etc.).
