I got the rib platter and my daughter got the fruit platter. We should have just split one meal because it was all we could do to finish both meals. The ribs were tender and had lots of flavor. The fruit was plentiful and there was a large variety. The value is excellent and the scenery around the lake is... More

I had the turkey leg and was not disappointed! The onion rings were exceptional, and the chocolate mousse was amazing! Recommended!

The ribs are juicy and tender the beans are flavorful and the soda hits the spot. Best food from the animal kingdom. Oh and the dining location is outside, but full of wildlife.

This is one of the best places to use your quick service part of the Disney Dinning plan! You can get 1/2 a chicken and 1/2 a rack of BBQ ribs, two sides, a drink and dessert! It's enough for two. The food always tastes freshly cooked, moist and tender. Although there is no indoor seating they have these covered... More

The food at this quick service restaurant is good and well priced. Barbecue sauce is tasty with sweet and smoky. My family has tried it all here and not one complaint. But it's what is behind and beyond this restaurant that makes it truly special....the views. There's views of mt everest coaster...a reflecting pond with cranes and overall beauty. On... More

Only complaint is all seating is outdoors which can get hot in summer & the tables aren't always as clean (I had to wipe ours... More

Animal Kingdom has few choices for quick service dining plan. Flame Tree has the best options that do not include burgers, etc. We had ribs, turkey sandwich, and BBQ sandwich. All were large portions and tasty.

Flame Tree BBQ is BY FAR not only the best quick service location in Disney's Animal Kingdom, but in my opinion, the best restaurant within the whole Animal Kingdom. Super fast service (always with a Disney smile!). Amazing food...better than most BBQ joints we have in my hometown. Looking for a Classic Disney turkey leg? You'll find it here! Outdoor... More

We ate here for lunch, and we both had the Smoked Chicken Salad that was very tasty and just the right portion size. Even though the line to order seemed long, it moved briskly, and we had our meals in short order. The tables out back of the restaurant provided a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of the...
