These little tacos are full to the brim and delicious. We really liked the pork belly+pickled watermelon rind and chilled lump crab, also high on the list was the fish.

We have many family members who when in town always go to White Duck Taco. We went this afternoon. Now we know why, we've been to many Taco Restaurants none of them compare to this. The flavor of the tacos were unbelievable, I also have 2 family members who r vegan and the had tacos for them.

Wonderful tacos, with varied flavors. A choice for any palate. Good portion sizes will fill you up. Quick service with food brought out to your table. Korean tacos and pork belly were the favorite!

Love the variety of tacos that were available. Had a bit of a line to stand in and order but it went quickly. Ordered chips and queso and 2 tacos apiece. The chips were stale but the queso was good. Our tacos were good, decent size for the money. Loved the outside seating.

The food is good, the service is quick. The drinks menu is a little limited, but this is a quick-service restaurant. The portions are generous; I over-ordered a bit! Each taco comes with two tortillas and enough filling for two, so keep that in mind when you are ordering.

We visited Asheville for the weekend and wanted a casual dinner on Friday night. The White Duck Taco Shop was the perfect place. The ingredients are fresh, the menu is creative and the prices are reasonable. We had the Jamaican jerk, pork belly, fish, duck molé and Asian chicken tacos. All were DELICIOUS! Plus, there's outdoor dining where you can... More

This time we were visiting Asheville to go to the Diane Wortham theatre which is located almost next door to the White Duck. The reviews looked good so we decided to give them a try and were glad we did. My wife and I had three different tacos, chips and salsa, and wine and beer. The food was great and... More

We loved the food here. This place was recommended by a friend and it was a great recommendation. We started out getting one taco each because we weren't sure what to expect. We ended up getting back in line and ordering two more. I could imagine that this place gets busy but their service is extremely fast. Friendly staff, too.... More

Tried a couple of thier tacos, fish and duck, both we delicious. The chips and salsa came with three sales which were all good. We were a fan of the spicy one. Quick and friendly service on a buddy Saturday afternoon. This place checks all the boxes for a quick, affordable delicious lunch. Decent margarita too.
