If you have the trip advisor app you should go here. This restaurant is why trip advisor exists! If you like to travel, love food, or just want to enjoy an hour of your life you should go here.

A quick and easy stop for your not so run-of-the-mill taco! Indoor/outdoor seating is quaint in a warehouse kind of way. Food is cooked with fresh ingredients and my fave is the Thai style taco. Bring your own dish cloth to wipe down your table...they're not concerned with clean tables. Doesn't deter me though!

This restaurant has some of the best tacos I've ever had. My boyfriend and I stopped in for lunch, and we were not disappointed. The mushroom taco we had was perhaps the best taco either of us had ever tasted!

We're in our fifties, don't wear yoga pants (OK - I wear Uggs) but this for us non-hipsters was a fabulous find. It was really busy but we beat the lines and split: Southwest Corn chowder, chips and queso, a fish taco and BBQ taco. All amazing. Prices are a steal - $17 for everything. We highly recommend.

This had to be some of the best "mexican" food I've ever had, but this was because everything was uber-local! BBQ taco with baked beans was amazing! Best cheese grits I've had in years, in fact, I tried ordering them at every restaurant with grits on the menu in Asheville, and their cheese greats were marathon miles above the best!... More

Listen... It's Asheville. This is in the middle of the River Arts District, their will be hipster scum as far as the eye can see ;-) But that shouldn't stop you from enjoying some of the BEST tacos you will come across. You can taste the freshness in the ingredients, and for the price, it's a steal.

This restaurant is in the River Arts District, which means on any weekend you have to push past the girls in yoga pants and Uggs, and the boys with beards that demand their own zip code, but it is worth it to eat some of these tacos. Get the Korean bulgogi taco and enjoy your foodgasm. Damn, I should have... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch and found it very busy even after lunch hours. We had the lamb gyro and the Bangkok shrimp and both were the best ever! Very casual and very busy! We can see why. Will definitely go back!

I love White Duck Taco. Not only are their tacos great, they have some of the best margaritas in Asheville. I always get their 3 combo sauce & chips, a nice cold margarita, a fish taco & a duck taco. All absolutely fabulous food. The prices are very reasonable and affordable and it's great fun eating there.
