Very Good place to eat. Even though it's listed under "Cheap Eats" section in Trip Advisor, I would rate it a Very Good place to eat. I'm sorry I chose "The Korean House" to eat, a 2/5 restaurant.

This was our third visit here. A few microbreweries and then some great tacos at White Duck....that's our own little way of enjoying Asheville. Outdoorsy stuff and beer, and tacos... yum. I had lamb gyro and Bangkok shrimp.....both were great! Will come back soon.

Just left here. My boyfriend and I ordered 3 tacos each (I'm a lady with a strong appetite); I HIGHLY recommend the pork belly. Beyond delicious. But the margarita was basically all (poorly made) sour mix. Disappointing. The food was good though, so if you...More

We were visiting the Biltmore when we got hungry and read about this taco place that everyone was going to. The shop is located seemingly in the middle of nowhere but when we get there for dinner, there was a line out the door. They...More

I knew before visiting Asheville that I'd be eating here, and I am so happy I had decided that! My boyfriend and I had the queso, which we agreed was the best queso ever, and I probably could've ordered three helpings of it and eaten...More

Most of their tacos are about $3.50. Only the duck taco is more; $5.75 from what I recall. You get two white corn wraps per taco. You could split the filling to make two tacos out of one.
