“Funky Taqueria in RAD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We finally made to the White Duck Taco Shop with our neighbor, who has been raving about it for months. The verdict: worth a visit. The many types of tacos (non-traditional) ranged from Thai Peanut Chicken to BBQ Carnitas to Bangkok Shrimp, etc. They were quite good and very filling. We each had two and that was plenty. You order at a window and the food is delivered to your table. Quick! Seating is mostly outdoor on a patio overlooking the River Arts District's north end. Beware of the train coming through about 100 yards away. When he launched the whistle, we all levitated about four feet.

“Lots of different types of tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Outdoor seating only but they have good umbrellas and must have cleaned the benches because we had no problems eating outside after a rainy morning. Service was very good. We liked the gyro, Thai chicken, and steak and cheese tacos more than the fish and crab. The chips were a bit stale and the weakest part, but the queso was good.

“If you like great food with your art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

White Duck is strategically located on Chicken Hill in the arts district of Asheville. Food is amazing and they sell Cheerwine in a bottle. Get the Bangkok taco. Then go visit nearby artist studios.

“Sweet little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Bohemian place serving tacos in an original way. I was able to sit outside on one of the picnic tables and take in the "wild" scenery. I love places like this which still have all their authenticity, aren't too brushed up

“Awesome food for a great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Love the food and the atmosphere. Unique food in a unique area and the prices are very affordable. Have a Bangkok Shrimp taco and browse a local pottery studio and art gallery while you wait. Definitely worth the visit.
