Easter 2019 – Bradenton Beach at Anna Maria Island – The Typical Tourist

Some of the most delicious shrimp tacos on the island!

Easter Weekend 2019 Throwback #2: When the locals throw a party in the bar area, you know the food is going to be good! We are Mexican food lovers – okay, Tex-Mex, Americanized Mexican food lovers; we accept our label – so when we travel, we look for the most frequented place to try. In Bradenton Beach, that’s Wicked Cantina! I judge a place by its shrimp tacos and Wicked Cantina passes with flying colors. The shrimp is crispy on the sauteed edges and has just enough bite to warrant the cool slaw. My husband judges by its salsa and enchiladas. Salsa – fresh, bright, and just a bit of slow heat. Enchiladas – soft, cheesy, and well-seasoned. Win-win!

Wicked Cantina is a busy, family-friendly place which also doesn’t take reservations. While you’re waiting on your table, pop across the parking lot and check out all the wonderfully beachy (read touristy and cheesy and so perfect!) little shop, The Green Turtle! Fun for everyone in there! Speaking of parking lot, save yourself the hassle of parking and walk or take the FREE Trolley shuttle which has both a southbound and northbound stop right near Wicked Cantina.

Finally, do it. Buy the souvenir T-shirt. Choose from “Can we TACO about it?” “Can we GUAC about it?” and our favorite, “QUESO, we good?”
