We saw a sign for this place and decided to stop in for lunch with our 2 year old. The girl who took our order was very polite and helpful. The food and drinks were great. Definitely recommend if you like a taco bar.

It's not much to look at, but the food is excellent and the prices a genuine bargain. Convenient to the River Arts District.

This local "dive" is worth the wait in lunchtime crunch line! Your traditional favorites are served along with specialties like jerk chicken tacos with pineapple salsa and red cabbage; Korean beef bulgogi tacos with house-made kimchi; and pork belly tacos. Sides are cheap -- only $2.00 for a generous portion of chips and queso. They use as many American-made products... More

Tacos are usually a dime a dozen but WD's tacos stand out. They have so many different options and unique choices- we wanted to try them all! My husband had the philly cheesesteak taco and buffalo chicken taco and said both were amazing. I can't eat gluten so I love that they have gluten free options clearly marked. I ordered... More

Quick dinner on my first night in Asheville and my first time in the establishment. The line was out the door but moved quickly. The restaurant feels very rushed - not relaxing. It is loud; the tables have benches or chairs and were quite close together. While I had heard excellent things about the place, I felt like perhaps it... More

The tacos are soo good. And there are $2 tecates in a can. My favorites were the fish and BBQ tacos. They were so good. They have a gluten free option for some of the tacos which was great. Our kids loved the chips and queso. This location is fun, right by the river and some really great artist spaces.... More

The wait was well worth it. The tacos here are delicious. Our orders consisted of: Fish, shrimp, chicken and BBQ tacos. All were very, very yummy. The service was very prompt and friendly. The food came out fairly quick and we inhaled these tacos in no time. The macaroon pie was so very delicious. This dessert is a must have...

We were given a tip from friends to check this place out. Reasonably priced, but simply fantastic. You order at the counter and they bring food to your table (we sat outside because the weather was perfect). I had wine and my husband had a fresh lime margarita. I ordered the Bangkok Shrimp taco and the Korean Beef Bulgogi. Will... More

I was invited to lunch here by a friend who raved about it. I found it to be just another of Asheville's over-hyped, mediocre spots where you stand in line to order, take a number, straddle a picnic table and chow down the average fare in an atmosphere that is not conducive to dining.

My wife and I dined at White Duck Taco while in Asheville. The line is out the door but moves quickly, stay in line, don't leave! I had the duck confit taco and the Thai shrimp taco. Both were delicious. What makes them so good is the fresh ingredients they put with the main meat. Check this place out for... More
