Irving, Texas-headquartered Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, the fast casual restaurant chain serving Mexican food favorites with a splash of Baja, has added Margarita Shrimp Taco to its menu for a limited time during the Lenten season. The product is prepared with fried or grilled shrimp, Tajin garlic sauce, green cabbage, lime crema, and a margarita-tomatillo pico made with lime juice and agave on a flour tortilla – all topped with feta and cilantro, and garnished with a Tajin-salted lime wedge.

Guests dining at most of Fuzzy’s 137 franchise- and corporate-owned locations in 18 US states can order the new taco offering from March 1, through Sunday, April 9.

“Our goal with this taco was to bring the experience of enjoying a margarita to a taco, with a very distinct Fuzzy’s Taco Shop twist,” said Laura Purser, vice president of marketing. “The product is packed with bright, fresh flavors and features shrimp, one of our most popular items, which also offers a seafood option for our guests who don’t eat meat or have cut it out for Lent. Guests should enjoy squeezing the Tajin-salted lime wedge onto the taco for an added margarita taste.

Founded in 2003 in Fort Worth, Texas, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop restaurants are franchised by affiliates of Glendale, California-based Dine Brands Global, Inc.
