“Who would have thought!?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Tacos in Asheville!? Yes, please. These tacos were fantastic and fun. Of course I had to try the duck taco and it was delicious. So many unique options here and each one we had was fantastic. The steak was my wife's favorite and I had to agree- it was at the top as one of the best steak tacos we ever tasted.

“Lives up to its reputation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Interesting combinations. I was pleased to have duck mole, something you hardly would find. They also have asian flavors and combinations you wouldn't expect. If it is hot, be sure to try the watermelon with mint, very cooling.

“White Duck is golden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

My wife and I tried White Duck Taco when we were visiting the area, and it was terrific. The atmosphere is exactly what you'd expect from an Asheville taco joint. The food itself was wonderful! They have a nice variety to choose from, and everything we had was great! It was a little hard to locate, but when we got there, I had zero complaints.

“Locals know best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

After walking around downtown and through the river arts district and having a number of locals suggest this spot for lunch we had to try. No disappointments here. Great chips with 3 kinds of salsa, wife had a delicious margarita and I had a great local ipa. We both agreed that the fish tacos were the best we've had. Extremely casual, outdoor seating (very few indoor spots). Definitely will be a go-to spot for us when we're in Asheville.

“Fun Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

White Duck was a fun place we found for an early dinner and a couple of margaritas. The Chips and three salsas were very good. We had a couple of margaritas that were very good. All they really serve is tacos. The regular tacos were $3.45 each and they had a couple of specials. The fish taco was our favorite and I also like the BBQ taco. The Gyro was OK. The crabmeat was $6.50 and our least favorite. Neat little place. Good when the weather allows you to eat outside. Not sure I would enjoy it if the weather is bad.
