The White Duck is not a fine dining establishment considering you sit outside on a picnic bench or in a concrete room but it is a fine meal. The Duck offers unusual tacos, beer and coke in its west asheville river arts location. Go for the food, stand in line (it moves fast), order and enjoy. Eat there or take away its your choice but do go as the tacos may just be the best in the state.

We've been on a mission lately to find good eats at a good price. Asheville is loaded with awesome places to eat, but many are quite pricey. As such, we tried White Duck Tacos on a chilly Saturday afternoon. My wife and I split an order of 4 different tacos (fish, buffalo chicken, thai shrimp, and one with brisket). Wow! The tacos weren't your usual taco fare. All had great (and differing) flavor combinations. 4 tacos were plenty for the both of us to share. All in all, $20 for lunch, inclusive of a fresh margarita was a great value for a wonderful meal. This place will definitely be a regular on our food rotation every time we visit Asheville!

The family went to the arts district and we needed a spot of food. As we waited in line at 33 degrees I asked a local hipster "hey hipster is it worth the wait" his reply "yep" and he was right. All the hipster donned with Toms shoes and nifty cameras were not wrong. Loved it. In our party we had the special duck, mushroom tacos. They were uniquely tasty. We had the corn chowder, really creamy and complex. Kids had the blt tacos. They ate the bacon on the side but devoured the rest. We had to try the grits. Stop the bus, that had a few more lumps than I prefer but they had good flavor. Yes it was worth the wait.

We loved the atmosphere and the delightful taco selections. Even on a rainy day, we were able to get a table relatively quickly after we ordered. The food was great and really creative and the staff was really nice. I enjoyed the special mushroom and potato taco with romesco the most.
