We love food trucks. Milwaukee’s food truck scene continues to grow and satisfy some of the most unique foodie cravings which are absolutely perfect to incorporate into your wedding weekend.
Whether for your rehearsal dinner, late night snacks, day after brunch, or even a casual wedding dinner, food trucks can be a unique option for you and your guests. Below we highlight a few of our faves, focusing on those trucks that are available to cater weddings in particular.
1. Lola’s Empanadas
From the delicious minds of Antigua Latin Cafe (fun fact — Antigua also caters full & delicious weddings) Chef Nicolas Ramos & co-owner Citlali Mendieta launched Lola’s Empanadas — serving both classic & unexpected flavors.
Offered via their food truck, catering & even heat-and-serve options, Lola’s Empanadas are some of the tastiest empanadas in town and perfect for late night wedding snacks, appetizers, rehearsals and everything in between.
2. Flour Girl & Flame
A delicious and locally-sourced spin on pizza — Flour Girl & Flame caters weddings! Bringing their wood fire pizza oven onsite, they will cook up some amazing & unique pizzas your guests are sure to enjoy.
Using locally sourced food when at all possible you can feel good about supporting this woman / LGBTQ+ owned business. Added bonus, Flour Girl & Flame contributes 5% of their profits to a charity of the wedding couple’s choosing. How cool is that?!
3. Meat On The Street
Opened in 2014 and operated by siblings Matt and Alexa Alfaro, Meat on the Street has been a delicious mainstay of the food truck scene in Milwaukee.
Showcasing Filipino food that includes melt in your mouth meat kebobs, lumpias, Filipino [egg] rolls, and even desserts, MOTS food truck & catering is available for weddings & special events.
4. Press Waffles
Oh Press Waffles we love you so! Started in 2015 by co-owners Emily & Aaron, Press offers the most delicious Belgian Liège waffles.
These pockets of deliciousness can be topped with either savory or sweet toppings, or our favorite — plain with a light dusting of powdered sugar. A super unique late night snack or morning after wedding brunch, there’s definitely a place for Press Waffles at your wedding.
5. Heirloom MKE
Specializing in self-described “farm-to-truck” food, Heirloom MKE‘s food truck menu is extensive and includes things like gourmet burgers, fries, chicken sandwiches and unique vegetarian items.
Heirloom MKE is also available to do full scale sit-down catering and weddings that are looking for an off-beat vibe or want food truck serviced dinners… and everywhere in between, including late night snacks, cocktail/appetizer hours, or charcuterie & grazing options. The possibilities are endless!
