Friends from Asheville brought us to White Duck on a Saturday night. We loved the menu choices and tried about 7 different tacos. All were delicious, but we especially liked the Bangkok Shrimp, Gyro, Black Bean, and Fish (spicy but yummy). There is something for everyone. Tacos cost $3.45, and they come with a two soft corn tortillas. You can... More

Just ate at White Duck Taco for first time. Had shrimp and fish tacos. Both were excellent. In our party of 6 plus takeout for 2 everyone was happy. Would go again to try other menu items, beers, and sides like the Kimchi.

We were starving after doing a 7 mile kayak trip on the French Broad River and had high expectations for gourmet tacos we'd hear others rave about. The actual White Duck experience turned out to be even better than we'd hoped! Our wait on early Saturday afternoon of 4th of July weekend wasn't bad at all - maybe 20 minutes... More

We visited White Duck on a Saturday night. Be prepared for a long line. It does move quickly. There are seating options inside and many picnic tables with umbrellas outside. There are a wide variety of gourmet taco choices that are fantastic. I enjoyed the steak and cheese and the gyro taco. We liked the chips and queso. I also... More

Best fish tacos I've ever had! They offer a number of gluten-free options, which is greatly appreciated.

This place rocks it out on tacos. I mean the menu of tacos covers the gambit whether it's the duck mole or the Bangkok shrimp. Jerk chicken killed it. Vegans love the black bean. Just go when you are in town. I want one of these shops in my hometown of Weston, FL. Please I'm begging. By the way they... More

I love the Caribbean jerk chicken tacos at White Duck--the jerk sauce is incredible. The salsa trio is delicious, and I love that the special tacos rotate a bit so you can try new things. I like to sit outside so I can bring my dog. Even when it's crowded, I've always been able to get a table quickly. The... More

This was my second time eating here and it was as good as the first. I live about an hour away so its hard to eat here often. I wish they would open a place in my town. We arrived 15 minutes before they opened and there was already a very long line waiting to get in. The serve you... More

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
