This funky little taco shop is like a glorified food truck business. The limited food menu has a large variety of tacos. I guess you might call them gourmet tacos. They were around $3.25 per taco. The steak and cheese was very good. Chips and dip, etc, standard fare are on the menu as well. (Nothing special about any of... More

This was my second visit in less than one month and both experiences were positive. The only downside is that it is four hours away! The food is excellent, very creative and exceptionally reasonable. The gazpacho was the best I have had - it was filled with fine small cubes of fruit and had the perfect amoun of "kick". Even... More

My husband and I decided to go here for dinner while visiting Asheville when we didn’t want anything expensive or fancy. This place is a gem!! We ordered three different types of tacos and the chips with three different types of homemade salsa. Everything here is made in house, and you can tell. It is inexpensive, funky, unique, and delicious.... More

This was definitely off the beaten path in the Asheville art district. If I hadn't had my GPS I never would have found it because it was not well marked. They had outside and inside seating. Line to order was incredibly long and came outside the door. This just shows how popular it is. We had Thai chicken, Greek chicken... More

Tried this because it has good reviews here. It was good. We are fans of local fare, and Asheville has plenty of choices. The Bangkok Shrimp was very unique and tasty. The fish taco was too spicy for my tastes, but the husband liked it fine. The black bean taco was nice and boring for those not wishing to explore... More

I ordered 2 tacos. Korean bbq and Thai chicken and was not dissapointed!! Added with a side of watermelon with some springs of mint and washed down with a Green Man IPA, I was a happy camper. The food was delicious! The outdoor seating was perfect! And I will definately be back again to try the other ecclectic choices for... More

We had the Bangkok Shrimp, Lump Crab and Korean Beef tacos. The shrimp tacos were delicious. Hubby enjoyed the beef. We both thought the crab tacos were a bit too fishy. Great little place, great service. We will definitely go back.

During my trip to Asheville this was probably the BEST restaurant I ate at (and we went to a new restaurant nightly) and it was the BEST fish tacos I have EVER had!!! Amazing and I highly recommend.

This place has rave reviews and we just don't get it. We ordered 4 different tacos to share: mole duck, lump crab, Thai peanut chicken, and Bangkok shrimp. We also decided to try the queso and chips at the suggestion of the person in line in front of us. She said, though vegetarian, she had tasted the duck taco and... More

My fellow TripAdvisor peeps... you steered me in the right direction once again. What a find. A menu full of inventive, delicious, fresh made tacos. Our group of 12 tried pretty much everything on the menu and nothing was short of fantastic. I think the overall favorites were the Lamb Gyro, the Mole Duck, the Bangkok Shrimp, and the Chicken...
