Eat a Duck Taco

Okay I had to have a Duck taco, never had. My daughter and I got 4 tacos. Duck, Crab, Thai Peanut Chick and the Bangkok Shrimp. The Duck was the best...out of this world. Our second favorite was the Thai Chicken. But they were all very good

I love the choices, all are unusually and they are the small size so you can eat 2-3 at a time.I don't have a favorite but you will soon enough. THE LINE MOVES FAST, DON'T LET IT DISSUADE YOU!

Very good casual Tex/Mex style tacos. Although tacos are a little overpriced they are big, and drinks are great and very reasonably priced as they use natural juice instead of fake cocktail mixes.

Read the raving reviews and decided to check it out. It was OK at best - I got the duck and fish taco. The fish wasn't fried and was quite fresh while the duck wasn't greasy or fatty and was well seasoned. However, the tortillas themselves were store bought and stale and the salsas very bland. Finally, 2 tacos, a... More

Went here with vegetarians, pescetarians, vegans, and carnivores...All were satisfied. Love that they offer enough taco options to make everyone happy. I had the black bean taco and thought it was good. My hubby had the fish taco and he said it was very good. My mom had the mushroom taco and was impressed, and my cousin had the beef... More

At 12:30pm on a Saturday afternoon, we drove out to this place from our hotel because it had such high reviews... now I see why. On the way there my wife asked with noticeable worry in her voice "where are you taking me??!" This is because the scenery from the interstate to the White Duck Taco Shop is not idyllic...... More

Our family sought the advice of friends when looking for a place to eat where we wouldn't feel uncomfortable being in our "road trip clothes" and that was tasty and economical. Several friends spoke up to recommend the White Duck Taco Shop -- and boy were we glad they did! This place is not fancy, but the tacos are innovative... More

This location is easy to get into and out of. Ample parking, in the arts district, outside eating area, and hey it's so close to The Wedge so get it togo then eat it while having a great beer. That's what my wife and I did :) The shrimp and the Thai chicken were my favorite. You really can't go... More

Good quick eats with lots of inventive tacos. Our favorites were the duck mole, jerk chicken, and buffalo chicken. Although others seemed to like the Korean bulgogi, I found it very disappointing (we eat a lot of Korean food; flavor was off).
