Looking for great food at an affordable price? Look no further than your local, neighborhood food truck. Mobile food operations provide fast, convenient meals at a price that’s typically lower than a sit-down restaurant. And their grab-and-go convenience makes them the perfect choice for a weekday lunch or quick weeknight dinner.

The trickiest part of grabbing your meal from a food truck is determining where you’re going to find one. Fortunately, we’ve got your number. This guide is tailor-made to be your go-to for where to find great food trucks in Downtown Milwaukee any day of the week.
