If you like tacos, and you want to try something different and incredibly good, you MUST go to the place. It was the best and a reason to return to visit Asheville ! Very very casual, but still fun eats !

I visit Asheville every year and this place has always been on my list. This year I finally got the chance to visit it and now I am hooked. These are by far the best tacos I have ever eaten. The flavors are just perfect and I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. This is now on the permanent list... More

Oh my!! Get away from your beef or chicken comfort zone. What a great selection of unique tacos. My personal favorite is the Bangkok shrimp with chili aioli & sesame glaze. Equally good though was the Greek lamb & mole roasted duck. Good prices, fast service, friendly employees. Go here.

Never thought I'd see a 'gourmet' taco but here they are. The River Arts District is a fun place to visit and White Duck fits in perfectly. Really good tacos. Especially the shrimp. Sitting outside eating these just goes with the ambiance of the area. The place is nothing fancy but come here on a weekend during the summer and... More

Had never been here before, but had heard great things about it so I gave it a shot for lunch today since I was nearby. If you are looking for a 'fancy' place to eat - this isn't your place, but it looks like it is great for groups looking for a casual lunch. I got the shrimp and jerk... More

So you think you know what goes in a soft corn tortilla shell? Think again - no wait - go to White Duck Taco Shop. Really affordable, really fresh and classy food - chicken mole taco, lamb gyro, bangkok shrimp - how's that for gourmet?? This is your place for lunch, an early dinner before bar hopping, just don't miss... More

Although, I'm not an Asheville expert, I had the feeling this was more a locals hang out. This location is a bit outside downtown, with a young ambiance, and good food. I tried the jerk chicken taco, good but not wow-ing, and the fish, a staple, and great. Additionally, we ate the mexican pot de chocolate. After analyzing each layer,... More

Weekend getaway to Asheville and stopped in at White Duck for lunch! Black bean and Thai Peanut Tacos are to die for! Chips and queso are excellent as well! It's now on our 'must stop' list for our next trip!

Excellent gourmet tacos with unique combinations. Thai chicken, Bangkok shrimp, potatoes and mushroom are some of the best. Local craft beers, good margaritas. Two locations, one downtown (nicer interior) and on in the Rivers Art's District (nicer outside dinning). Chips with three dips are a good starter. One of our family's favorite weekend eats.

All of their tacos are delicious but that Bangkok shrimp is killer. Place was a little hard to find at first but definitely worth stopping by for some great tacos!
