We tried this restaurant on a recent visit to Johnson City and loved it! The atmosphere is casual but interesting as it adjoins the Yee Haw brewery in what appears to be an old building near the former train station. The menu changes, with a few favorites, such as the buffalo chicken taco and the Bangkok shrimp taco that seem to stay on the menu all the time. I had the Bangkok shrimp, which was outstanding! A combination of tangy, spicy, crunchy and sweet. I also had the General Tso’s taco, which was a special that day. Three people at our table ordered it and loved it. It soon sold out and was removed from the menu board, and it was only 1:00 pm. Others at our table also enjoyed the buffalo chicken taco. Everything was fresh and delicious and the service was lightening fast. You place your order at a counter and the food is served to your table. All of the tacos sound amazing and you will wish you could eat more! I also enjoyed a side of watermelon chunks with fresh mint. We ordered the macaroon pie desert, but it was not a hit at our table. It is served in a small ramekin and is more like a coconut caramel pudding. Very thick with lots of coconut. Who cares? Everything else was so wonderful that we all left happy.

We ate at a White Duck in Asheville earlier this year and didn’t realize they had multiple locations. The food at both locations was superb, but this location is larger and seemed much cleaner than the one we tried earlier in the year. They’re adjacent to a brewery and a band was setting up as we were leaving. It’s a great atmosphere and I wish we could have stayed to enjoy the music. Everyone in my family ordered something different and we were all pleased with our tacos. My favorite was the shrimp diablo, but beware it is extremely spicy! The staff members were all extremely friendly and our food came out quickly. We will definitely return.

What a cool place. I could see enjoying a lazy afternoon here for sure. We were driving through on our way home and decided to stop for lunch. We ordered a few different tacos and shared them so we each got a taste. The water melon rind and Pork belly was by far the best. Someone way down reviewed it as fatty...but that’s what bacon is. Weridos! The Korean beef was our next fav, followed by the Greek gyro, duck, and then the Bangkok shrimp being our least fav and the one we probably would skip next time. We will be back

On our return trip home, we stopped in Johnson City for lunch and landed at White Duck Tacos. What a treat! We will definitely return. Beware though - the shrimp diablo is no joke - the sauce is incredibly hot! Everything else we had - tacos, chips and 2 different salsas were very good. Definitely return for lunch or dinner.
