Milwaukee has no shortage of food trucks, and as of this morning, we have our very first food truck park, too. Zocalo opened today at 636 S. 6th St. in Walker's Point.
The day began with fresh hand rolled bagels from Ruby's Bagels, Zocalo's first incubator concept, which sold out by noon. The rest of the food vendors – Scratch Ice Cream, Mazorca Taco Truck (moved from the location on 1st Street and Pittsburgh Avenue), burger-and-fries truck Fontelle's Eatery and Asian rice bowl / wings restaurant Bowl Cut are all parked and ready to serve.
Zocalo's sixth vendor spot will be occupied by a rotating local food truck.
The new food park also features a full-service bar, bocce court and picnic table seating both outdoors and covered. We stopped by earlier today for lunch and photos. Check 'em out.
Zocalo's hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. The park is closed on Monday. Family- and dog-friendly.
