I would rec AUGIES or GT CHARLIES, however the food at the zoo is not too bad for mostly junk food, at least at the larger diner.

You can also picnic in lunch yourself, esp if it's a nice day.

You'll probably be famished after walking at the zoo, so Chris Madrid's would be a good choice. It's also casual.

I would not recommend Tomatillo's for that occasion. You might not be in the mood for Mexican food, and it's less casual, which would not be good after coming from the zoo.

If you end up going to Joseph's don't forget to take your zoo receipts for a free cookie...

My absolute first choice in that area is the W. D. Deli, right there on Broadway. They have THE BEST grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup combo in town. It's locally owned and operated by a couple of really great guys. Great food, great service, cute restaurant and a lovely outdoor seating area.

Good Time Charlies is fine as is Boardwalk Bistro. I will add Picante Grill over Tomatillo's. Good lunch specials.

Reviving this old thread to recommend The Cove. Just 3 miles from the zoo and has a nice little playscape for the kids.
