This NC-based taco shop with fusion flavors is making a return to Matthews this week

White Duck Taco Shop’s remaining Charlotte-area location, which has been closed since an overnight fire last July, is reopening this week.

The downtown Matthews restaurant has set its reopening for Thursday, May 9 from 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m.

“That’s right folks, we’re back and better than ever! Bring your friends and come enjoy some tacos, bevs, and chips & dips! We will see you soon!,” the restaurant team posted via Instagram.

The path to reopening the restaurant look longer than expected, and the closure of White Duck Taco Shop’s Belmont location took place in the meantime, leaving Charlotte without the restaurant’s fusion flavors for months.

“It’s been a long strange trip of insurance, bureaucracy, set backs, and now joy,” the team had posted back in March as plans fell into place for the reopening.

The Asheville-based taco restaurant offers snacks and sides to pair with tacos that come in flavor-packed options such as Thai peanut chicken, chicken tikka masala and mole roasted duck.
