Food isn't bad, but just didn't live up to expectations given all the great reviews. Bartaco in my experience (from ATL, there's also one here in Asheville) is better. The porkbelly taco didn't have a ton of flavor and the carnitas BBQ sauce was too sweet. Queso was pretty good.

Easy informal friendly diner with great menu choice, including meat, fish & veggie options plus spicy top-up sauce if wanted. Indoor & outdoor terrace. Nice.

Ive passed through Asheville twice and have stopped at white duck both times. I changed up what i got on both visits. I enjoy the combinations they have on their menu. Full of flavor and hey they r tacos so they dont have a beautiful presentation. I like the pork belly taco and the bulgogi taco best.

We were on vacation in the area and decided we wanted tacos. We ordered the mushroom and potato tacos and the chips and salsa trio. The tacos were delicious and the chips and salsa complimented them well. I enjoyed this meal alot!

I visited this place with my husband and my toddler son for his birthday lunch meal. The tacos are delicious! I had a Tofu Banh Mi taco and the Korean kimchi Beef Taco. My son had a chicken BLT taco and my husband had some Pork Belly tacos. Each and every type of taco was superb. You can't go wrong... More

Gourmet Tacos at $3.45 each, what else can I say? They were crazy busy on a Saturday night, but the line moved quickly. My favorite was the Saigon Shrimp taco - fried shrimp with marinated cucumbers and a creamy spicy sauce. Gyro Taco and Fish taco were also good.

I was biking around Asheville, I got lost and my phone was running out of juice. It was late and my tank was also running low. I stopped in to charge my phone and maybe get a drink. The menu looked so good I had to try a taco or two. I had the Korean BBQ and the Buffalo Chicken... More

Great tacos. Had Thai peanut chicken and NC BBQ. Both were good liked NC BBQ better. Queso was excellent also. Small indoor seating area. It was cold so not many were sitting outside but was able to get a table. Nice outdoor seating area when warmer.
