Stopped here when we needed to eat at an awkward time ( 4.30pm)
Pleasantly surprised , great food and service. The hit tacos were the shrimp and steak, fresh products and fast service. Ask for the spicy sauce if you want a kick.Everyone was very friendly and we will definitely be back next time we are in Asheville!

Don't let the long line out the door put you off--service is fast. Also, they serve wine and local craft brews from a separate line, so you can enjoy your beverage while you wait. Tacos are held up by double fresh tortillas, so it doesn't get too sloppy. We enjoyed Korean BBQ, Carnitas, Thai Peanut Chicken and Fish. Seating is in or out, but the patio is the place to be if the weather's nice. Go there for lunch after your morning mountain hike.

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!
