According to OnMilwaukee readers, the city's best food truck may be vehicular, but it isn't totally mobile.
Gypsy Taco is located on the back patio of Boone & Crockett in Bay View. The "un-apologetically unauthentic" taco truck officially started serving tacos in 2016 and has quickly become a beloved staple. For proof: Last year was their first round in the Dining Month game, and they won by a landslide.
Dr. Pepper braised pork shoulder, braised beef tongue and seared tuna are only a few of the options available at Gypsy Taco, with side options like the corn cup with a "cult following" and churros for dessert rounding off the menu. And now we're hungry already.

OnMilwaukee editor's pick: Funky Fresh Spring Rolls
Lori Fredrich's pick: Press Waffles
If there’s one truck from which I’ve craved food all summer long (and all too often didn’t find it in hand), it’s Press and their infinitely craveable liege waffles. Yeasty and caramelized, these waffles are rich and intense, and their texture is stretchy and layered. Maybe most delightful is the faintly crunchy exterior, which is formed through the caramelization of the pearl sugar on both the exterior and interior of the waffles. As I wrote earlier this year, "These aren't the sort of waffles you can have a singular bite of and quickly forget."
