La Luna Market - Rutherford
Nice little market right off of highway 29 in Rutherford ( just pasts Oakville as you go North )
I tried three different tacos : carne asada, al pastor and cabeza. The carne asada was a bit dry ..... the cabeza was on the plain side and wasn't as well seasoned as the other fillings. The al pastor was excellent - little crispy bits and a nice seasoning. Would get this again....left a little buzz on my lips afterwards ....... woud be a good burrito filling also - wouldn't get lost among the other ingredients. Sad to say that they didn't have any agua frescas ..... regular tacos are $1.75
and are made with two griddles corn tortillas and a generous amount of filling with some chopped onion and cilantro.

Definitely one of the better taquerias in the Valley. If you're ever in Napa, La Mixteca is the best. Has been discussed on this board quite a lot.

Now that you mention it ....... there wasn't any salsa included with my order and I didn't notice a salsa bar or station. They do sell containers of their salsa in a refrigerated case nearby though. The cabeza probably would have benefited from a hit of salsa. The al pastor was quite good as it was. A good ( for me ) heat level was present on all 3 fillings - there was some chile mixed into the fillings. No chips ( that I saw ) either ....
La Luna Market is my local lunch spot, and I've covered the menu thoroughly during my visits. When I'm outside Napa City Limits, the simple rule of thumb is: La Luna Market for carnitas burritos and al pastor tacos. Azteca Market for carne asada tacos.
