What are you doing next Tuesday?  You could be indulging in unlimited tacos at one of Milwaukee's best patios.

That's because every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday at both The Yard and Branded at the Iron Horse Hotel, 500 W. Florida St. And that means you can enjoy some good old-fashioned patio drinking, along with great tacos, for a really reasonable price.

Here's the deal: between 4 and 7 p.m. on Tuesdays, $20 will get you unlimited tacos, which are served with housemade chips, salsa, beans, rice and two house margaritas. After 7 p.m., tacos are $4 each, sides are $5 and margaritas are $6.

Chef Joshua Rogers notes that the tortilla chips are fried in-house daily and are served with a blended salsa made from dried chilies (including guajillo, ancho, Thai bird’s eye and chipotle) and tomatoes. Black beans are simmered for hours with seasonings and enriched with bacon fat. They're accompanied by seasoned Jasmine rice.

As for the tacos, all feature housemade corn tortillas, and they can be ordered in any combination. Pollo taco features brined and seasoned chicken breast, house pico de gallo and queso fresco.

Crisp fried cod is served up Baja-style with spicy slaw and micro cilantro.

Meanwhile, carnitas features an Asian inspired pork, red chili sauce and white onions.

Not into tacos?

Just drop by The Yard or Branded for Sunday Supper. From 5 p.m. to close on Sundays, you can enjoy a meal of Caesar salad, salt-crusted prime rib, baked potato and garlic broccoli for just $15 per person. There’s even chocolate mousse for dessert.

Sundays are also "Veuve in the Sun" days in the Yard. Every Sunday, all day long, you can enjoy Veuve Clicquot for just $18 per glass, $45 for a half bottle or $72 per bottle.
