This is currently the largest restaurant at the NC Zoo and has the larger variety of menu items. It can be crowded on major holidays and weekends. Extremely small restroom for volume of business it has. Ice cream and pizza are also located here.

The junction is a great place to stop as it is in the middle of the zoo. It has plenty of seating and getting the food did not take to long. It is basic American food that kids will like.

Order and eat picnic style. Mostly sandwiches, but very tasty and not boring. Good choices for kids with PB & J and fruit choices too. Indoor and outdoor seating choices.

Not bad, but limited menu. Typical prices for "theme park" fare. Some vegetarian options. Food made to order in most cases. Some salads and sandwiches other than burgers, hot dogs and chicken tenders.
