BBQ at the Zoo!

Today, Friday, July 8, a brand-new barbecue quick service restaurant opened at the Houston Zoo. Under the direction of executive chef Larry Arguello, Cypress Circle Grill features a variety of house-made barbecue favorites. From smoked sausage and pulled pork, to tender ribs and brisket, there is something to satisfy every barbecue craving. The culinary craftsmen of the Zoo make everything from scratch on Zoo grounds including the sides like the crunchy apple coleslaw, creamy mac-and-cheese, house-made kettle chips, Cajun spicy rice, and this taster’s personal favorite – garlic pickles!

So next time you visit the Houston Zoo, save some room for a savory pulled pork sandwich or fall-off-the bone ribs at the all-new Cypress Circle Grill!
