This taco shop has a great variety of unusual tacos. I had the black bean and the jerk chicken tacos. They are somewhat small and served in two layers of thin soft taco shell. You're gonna get it on your hands, no matter what. The jerk sauce was very good-clears your sinuses! But I don't get the feeling the chicken... More

I ate lunch there and their tacos were unique and interesting--I would skip the black bean taco--not much flavor. It is located in the River Arts District--don't expect anything fancy. Actually, the restaurant was cold the day we went. The service was friendly and quick. Prices were reasonable.

Very unique flavors that I would have never thought to mix together. Bangkok shrimp taco is off the chain good, Buffalo chicken taco is excellent as is the fish taco.

This was our first stop to White Duck Tacos. YUM!! Asheville was about 1/2 way to our destination and my husband found this taco shop. Love that they have outdoor, pet friendly seating. Our dog appreciated getting to stretch her legs while we ate and they even have water bowls by the tables. I ordered the lamb gyro taco, my... More

Ate here in December. Had the chips and queso while our tacos were being prepared. Pretty much like store chips and jar queso. Tried the lamb gyro and jerk chicken tacos. Both were served on cold doubled corn tortillas. The jerk chicken was cold and uneventful. The lamb gyro was tasty. White Duck is hugely popular, so I thought I... More

Being from Texas, we weren't sure if it would be worth trying on our visit to Asheville... We have a ton of big and small taco shops that boast a myriad of fillings. We needed a hold-over between a big breakfast and a nicer dinner later, so we stopped by on a Wednesday early afternoon over the Christmas holidays. The... More

This is a great place. The tacos are fantastic and I've tried most of them. The place itself like many Asheville joints is pretty basic. It has limited seating inside and picnic benches and covered seating outside. Sitting outside with a group of friends is really enjoyable during the warmer months. Unfortunately, the flies can be pretty bad at the... More

My husband and I love fish tacos so we wanted to try this place because they have such a variety of tacos to choose from. I loved the potato and mushroom taco, but my favorite was the shrimp and grits taco! Neat place to visit!

We were on a family excursion and hit the riverside art district on our last day. A local had recommended White Duck Taco so we tried it. We arrived before opening and were first in the shop. The staff was ready and we had our orders in minutes. The queso, salsas, and tacos were superb. This is a fun, funky... More
