Really great cheese dip and fast service

We were not sure about the place when we first arrived. But I noticed parking was full and people were lined up at door. Service was fast and before we knew it we had a table. We had fish taco, steak and cheese, lamb and buffalo chicken. The steak and lamb tacos were outstanding. The buffalo... read more

This is what I would call one of those "hole in the wall" places. I heard good things about White Duck, otherwise I might not have tried it. It was not much to look at, outside or inside. You order your food and then go find a place to sit down. I ordered the tofu taco, but noticed it wasn't... More

The tacos were presented much like traditional tacos on two small corn tortillas, but are truly unique fusion tacos. It is kind of like getting a popular meal of a particular country or region on two corn tortillas. Nice, but I would rather just have Thai as Thai and Jamaican as Jamaican. They were tasty for sure but not extraordinary... More

It is off the beaten path but definitely popular. Waited in line outside but was worth it. Something for everyone. Nice beer selection too.

For the most eclectic and freshest tacos you've ever had, come here! You can have duck, lamb, shrimp, chicken, etc all with various, interesting accompaniments. The Roberts St. address has a funky atmosphere to match the food... at $3.45 per taco, this has got to be the best foodie deal in town

Even though the surrounding area was initially questionable to a first- time visitor, the taco shop was super trendy and delicious. I had one Duck taco which was delicious but small and relatively expensive for the size. Next time, I'll order two or three tacos!! The quality of the food was fresh and outstanding. Service was quick and friendly. Cool... More

This is a quaint little taco shop, at the base of the hill where the galleries are for the art walk. There's a line to get in and place your order, then you sit outside and enjoy the weather and some very creative taco combinations. We especially liked the duck mole tacos and the crispy chicken BLT tacos, as well... More

We were looking for a casual local joint for dinner and stumbled upon this on Trip Advisor and gave it a try. I can see how some of the items would be unique, but we tried 3 or 4 different tacos that sounded delicious and we were disappointed with all of them.

Small hole in the wall with a great variety of tacos. We enjoyed shrimp, mole duck, gyro, thai chicken, buffalo chicken and tofu tacos. Tacos run around $3.95 each , a bit more for the duck. Two taco is plenty for a meal and more than enough if you aren't that hungry. The offer a couple of local craft beers.... More

Boy are we glad we found this place. The best fish taco perhaps we've ever had. I should say tacos!!!! Because we had to go back for more than just one. We sampled several of the options, all very good, but I must say the fish taco is the one we'll come back for over and over again.
