The Philadelphia Zoo has ramped up dining options for humans with two new dining locations.
Jose Garces has taken to parking his Distrito Taco Truck on site on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, through the summer. The menu includes tacos, nachos, burritos and churros, plus a kid’s meal featuring a chicken finger quesadilla, churro bites and bottled water.

The zoo's food-service provider, Aramark, also has opened 34th Street Market, serving locally sourced, seasonally inspired salads, French baguette sandwiches and an action station, where a cook will assemble rotating sandwich specials, like grilled chicken breast with arugula, roasted pepper, shaved parmesan and citrus mayo.
