Tacos with a twist

Shrimp tacos with a twist? Yes, please! 

I have been eating at Wicks Park in Saugatuck for many years and the food always has been great. I found myself gravitating toward the fish tacos or lettuce wraps.

Although these two dishes never disappointed and were delicious, I decided to ask my waitress for a recommendation and venture away from my “usual.” This was when I was first introduced to the shrimp tacos!

The shrimp tacos consist of shrimp sauteed with sweet potato vegetable hash and flour tortillas. These weren’t your typical tacos, either, because the sweet potato hash adds a whole different twist. The flavor and spices were amazing! The portion size was more than plenty and I even had leftovers for later.

Wicks Park Bar & Grille can be found in the heart of Saugatuck, right across from the Kalamazoo River. There is a beautiful park across the street that hosts numerous festivals, concerts and events. I highly recommend adding this restaurant — and the shrimp tacos! — to your “must-try” list when in the Saugatuck area.
