We ordered lamb gyro tacos and buffalo chicken tacos. The lamb gyro were great. Very inexpensive and fast. Friendly service and in the River Arts District.

Lots of creative combinations of tacos. We tried the Thai chicken, shrimp and buffalo chicken tacos. They were all pretty good but some of the relishes were a bit much. Can't go wrong with the cheese dip or salsa trio. Cheap, quick eats if you are in the area.

The locals recommended this place to us. We went by one night and seen people standing out the door. But the line moves quickly, they have service down pat. The menu was so fresh and creative. This was some of the best food of our trip. My wife got the fish taco and it was flat out amazing. Great stuff.... More

They can safely tell you what's gluten free. The food was excellent. It's very funky and fun. Go there for lunch, but at an odd hour or you will have a long wait.

Been wanting to try this place for ages, and now I wonder, "what were we waiting for?" Food is fresh, hot, unbelievably well priced and delish! We had the fish tacos, steak tacos & 2 ice teas for nine bucks! although you stand in line to order, the line moves fairly fast and they deliver the food to your table... More

On vacation near Gatlinburg, we decided on a quick day trip to Asheville. We never did see much of Asheville with all the traffic of the workweek and poor sign information for landmark areas or places of interest. We did find this place easily and enjoyed some of the best tacos ever. It is in an industrial area and you... More

Venture down to Asheville's semi industrial River Arts Distrct to explore arts studios and bre pubs and stay for lunch. Perched on a hillside overlooking the French Broad River, picnic tables provide a pleasant setting to enjoy the very indidualistic tacos. Interesting ingredients and flovors inform you this is definately an Ashevillian take on the taco craze. The salted caramel... More

This is literally the best place I have ever eaten. The tacos are all so amazing it shouldn't be legal. And for that price?! Are you kidding me?! The workers are very friendly and the atmosphere is perfect. I cannot wait to go back to White Duck Taco and stuff my face

They take these delicious different flavors and combine them into delicious filling tacos. Great local place to visit for an insight into food that Ashevillians love.
