This place is really great!!! The tacos are amazing. If your in Asheville you have to stop by for lunch or dinner. It's a laid back taco place.

This popular taco shop had a line 30 people deep when we arrived with empty stomachs on a recent Saturday afternoon. The lines moves quick though and the location and vibe of the place make for great people watching while you wait. The outdoor seating area seems like it'd be a fun and lively place to be on a weekend afternoon or night.

The Banh Mi Tofu taco was unexpected. It definitely is a nice twist on the traditional taco. The black bean taco, while more traditional, was more filling but not quite as good.

The wife nominated her fish taco as the best she had ever had. Her second taco is slipping my mind at this point. An appetizer of chips and the three salsas (including a super tasty creamy one) was the perfect thing to accent the meal.

Cool place, good food and lunch for two came out to $18 after tip. Thumbs up!

The tacos are fantastic. The Bangkok Shrimp tacos are so delicious. There is usually a line out the door but that's because everyone knows how good this place is. The line moves fast. This place has it down pat. I love WDT!

We saw the long line while at the River Arts Walk & even though we had just eaten lunch we had to share a fish taco. We also had the chips & salsa trio....all were great. We will definitely be back!

One of the craftsmen in Asheville's River Arts district recommended the White Duck Taco, and we are so glad we took him up on his suggestion! My husband and I both love lamb, so we had the lamb gyro tacos, and they were delicious. We appreciated the smaller size than many lunch plates, which fill you so full you have no room for dinner. Also the half pints of local porters. We're glad we saved room for the salted caramel macaroon dessert. It seemed more like a coconut bread pudding than a pie and was scrumptious!
