This place is amazing. We had several flavours and all were delicious. I recommend the grilled fish and the Thai Peanut Chicken. Their Margaritas ($7 for house, $10 top shelf) are great too. Try their Homemade Queso.

White Duck has a lot of competition in town for best tacos, but they win hands down as far as I'm concerned. Great chips and salsa, too! Try the fish tacos and the pork belly, my personal favorite. Yummmm!

Went there for lunch for a friend suggested and also is on top 10 in Google...tried soup and taco, they are good but not the best like some other Mexican place. Worth the price...quite a big place for eat and hangout.

When visiting Asheville, make sure to visit the River Arts District and have lunch at the White Duck Taco shop. RAD is not pretty...its the old industrial part of the city..but it is fascinating and this little restaurant sums up the feeling. Food is excellent....More

First visit-best tacos ever! Had the pork belly and duck tacos which according to guy behind counter are their most popular. Duck was really good, but pork belly was the winner. A must visit when in Asheville.

Most of their tacos are about $3.50. Only the duck taco is more; $5.75 from what I recall. You get two white corn wraps per taco. You could split the filling to make two tacos out of one.
