White Duck Taco Shop, 612 Whaley Street: 23 December 2018 (probably)   4 comments

Posted at 12:36 am in closing





I never ate at White Duck though I like tacos (or soft tacos & burritos: hard shell tacos crack and fall apart too easily for me). It's a bit out of the way, and I keep forgetting that it exists. Also, from the name, I thought maybe it was one of those places that is too hip to have regular taco ingredients (like Italian restaurants that are embarrassed to offer pizza so they don't have pepperoni..)

Of course there's also the song I chickened out of playing at my first and only piano recital..

Anyway, according to The State, you have a chance to make a difference here with a last minute surge of business.

  1. I liked their pork belly(I think) taco, but you didn't miss out on anything extraordinary. If you want good tacos, hit up the taco truck tucked away across the street from LaBrascas.

  2. This was part of a local chain based out of Asheville that I first had up there. I loved the place and was glad to see them open in Columbia. In my opinion, the taco here were better than similar venues like Cantina and Publico. Sorry to see them close.

  3. Bubba's Biscuit opened at this location in Oct 2019 and they now have a second location in Lexington.

  4. The third restaurant to grace this space at 612 Whaley is called Granby Grill. We opened three days before McMaster shut down dining during quarantine and have so far avoided having our own listing on Columbia Closings. We nicknamed Granby Grill Olympia's Neighborhood Diner and offer high brow versions of American Diner food including breakfast favorites all day everyday ala omelettes, steak & eggs, two egg breakfasts and triple stack pancakes. Come see us and help keep us off this website.
