Wisconsin: 5 Food Trucks for Wisconsin-Inspired Eats

By Contributor  |  Travel Wisconsin


You can find a food cart for just about any type of cuisine imaginable, but what makes these five so special is that they each celebrate Wisconsin in their own way! Some feature locally sourced ingredients, while others put a new twist on an old cookout classic.

Of course, food trucks don’t stay put for long. For up-to-date hours and locations, be sure to check each truck’s website. Trust us, these mobile eateries are worth chasing down!

Curd Girl – Madison

Cheese curds have always been one of Wisconsin’s most iconic food traditions – we have entire festivals dedicated to them! With that type of passion considered, it comes as no surprise that two best friends from Monroe would build a food truck business dedicated to their favorite fried treats.

Rather than serving frozen prepackaged curds, Curd Girl opts for fresh, local and organic ingredients for the best quality and taste. With a rotating selection of homemade dipping sauces like creamy ranch and honey Sriracha, you’ll definitely want to follow this truck for a second visit!

Tasty Wieners On Wheels – Oshkosh

In Wisconsin, brats and hot dogs are often associated with backyard cookouts during the hot summer months, but that doesn’t mean these state staples can’t be enjoyed elsewhere. Tasty Wieners On Wheels brings the cookout to you!

Serving up all-beef hot dogs and high-quality bratwursts, this food truck will satisfy that cookout craving while you’re out and about in Oshkosh and at festivals in the surrounding area. If you’re looking to put a new twist on an old favorite, try one of their seasonal specials like the infamous doughnut dog. (Yes, you read that right!)

Hardwood Cafe – Milwaukee

The Hardwood Cafe brings Northern Wisconsin hospitality to the big city. Built to resemble a cozy log cabin complete with a patio, this food truck serves up an impressive assortment of grilled, smoked and oven-roasted meats on homemade buns.

The menu features a rotating selection of daily specials and soups, and all food is made fresh each day. Don’t walk away without trying the famous deep-fried BLT sandwich!

Cameleon Food Truck – Green Bay

This truck has become something of a local favorite in the Green Bay area. Rather than simply grilling up some burgers and brats, Chameleon puts delicious spins on these Wisconsin favorites.

Take the Big Grilled Cheese Burger, for example – that’s a double burger stacked between two grilled cheese sandwiches. Can’t decide between a burger or a brat? The “BB” Burger gives you both stacked right on top of each other – a Wisconsin dream! The menu changes each day, so you’ll want to be on the lookout for new items.

The Dawg House – Lynxville

The Dawg House in Lynxville proves that you don’t have to be in the city to find a great food truck.

The classic hot dogs and burgers are always a delicious option, but this truck also serves catfish that’s caught fresh from the Mississippi River right in their own backyard. It doesn’t get much more fresh than that! While you’re at it, don’t forget to top off your order with an order of their famous cheese curds!
