Although Two Brothers – a nearly 30-year-old family-owned diner that serves breakfast and lunch – reopened in December after the building was struck by a car last August, the brothers, and the sister, have launched a food truck that operates in front of the restaurant.
The Two Brothers & The Sister food truck is open at the restaurant, 4625 W. Burnham St., in the afternoons, from 4 until 8 p.m.
The truck is operated by the sister, Jeta Rusidovski, and dad, Frank Rusidovski, and sells gyros, hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches and burgers.
The restaurant is open daily from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. for dine-in and carryout service.
The Rusidovkis are working to get licenses to operate the truck in Cudahy, St. Francis and South Milwaukee, too.
