The Zoo offers meals and snacks to suit every appetite, ranging from traditional burgers and hot dogs to grilled chicken sandwiches and salads; and snack foods from ice cream confections to hot pretzels. Due to seasonality, hours and availability of concessions may vary.
Your purchases in the Zoo’s concession stands and gift shops support the Zoo’s conservation and education programs. However, you are welcome to bring in your own food and beverages; we ask that you do not bring glass containers or alcoholic beverages. You are welcome to retrieve items from your vehicle and return to the Zoo within the same day as long as your hand is stamped by the main entrance attendant.
