White Duck Taco Shop opened adjacent an artist studio in the River Arts District in 2011, and while the picnic-tabled, quick food spot joined a slew of fun and eclectic eateries in the district, it has certainly emerged as a standout. There's almost always a line out the door, especially during peak lunch and dinner times Monday through Saturday. Inside, a colorful chalkboard displays the kitchen's offerings, including a dozen varieties of tacos with a nod to a plethora of international cuisines. Jerk Chicken, Bangkok Shrimp and Lamb Gyro are just a few of the options, all of which are best enjoyed alongside a serving of mint watermelon and a glass of house made white or red sangria. Since this venture has been such a success, owners opened a second location downtown on Biltmore Avenue.
- Best Restaurants: "Kids love this funky spot thanks to the children's quesadillas offered and the regular interval of trains that chug along the nearby railroad tracks. Be sure to order a serving of chips and queso and don't' forget... White Duck is closed Sundays."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Quick serve cuisine made with creative gusto makes this the perfect complement to nearby galleries and artist hubs.
