N’Awlins lunch on the quick? That’s what Maxie’s Curbside is for. The food cart parked outside Maxie’s (6732 W. Fairview Ave., 414-292-3969) has been serving up a small menu of Big Easy eats on weekdays all summer .  jambalaya (original and vegetarian versions, $7-$8), Carolina pulled pork sandwich with creamy slaw ($6), smoked chicken sandwich (shown above, $7), white cheddar mac and cheese ($7), corn and arugula salad (in photo, $7) and sides like grits with tasso gravy (yep, in the photo, $3) and barbecued beans ($2). Each weekday, Curbside runs a different special -- like shrimp and grits on Mondays ($10) and chopped beef brisket sandwich on Thursdays ($8). Seating available at the patio tables outside Maxie's. Hours: Mon-Fri 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Maxie's Curbside is also open for a rare weekend -- this weekend, for Harley's 110th anniversary festivities (Sat-Sun 11 a.m.-2 p.m.) Closed on Labor Day.
