To our customers: After long consideration, we have come to the decision of closing The Laughing Taco location at Crossroads Collective. Sunday, May 5th will be our last day. We have seen this project from its inception and consider it a great addition to the Milwaukee food scene; however, The Laughing Taco is a unique business with unique needs. Serving the Milwaukee community is something we enjoy greatly and we want to give our customers our very best; it is with that idea in mind that we make this move. We feel honored to have been a part of Crossroads Collective from the beginning; we are grateful to the restaurants in it, that work as a great team to build a new exciting place on the East Side. We want to thank Tim Gokhman, for his vision and great support; Heavens Table bbq, Frida, Falafel Guys, Beerline Café, Scratch ice cream, Raw Bar, Egg and Flour and all the fantastic hard working people that make Crossroads Collective. It has been great experience to be a part of this wonderful group and we wish you all the very best! It makes us really happy to say that that all of our employees in our Crossroads location will remain working within our family. All of us will continue working so Laughing Taco on 1st St remains your favorite place to get authentic street-style Mexican tacos; new menu items, new hours and special events will be announced soon! We will also continue our wonderful partnership with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Fiserv Forum. Thank you all for your support and understanding, please keep visiting us!!
