Great Ribs & Plenty to Share

I come to The Animal Kingdom just to get these ribs! they are awesome: smoked flavor, lots of meat and plenty to share (two adults or three kids). The food is excellent; the restaurant is under construction now but there is plenty of seating and the food comes boxed for protection. Enjoy!

I ordered a combo plate that came with ribs, chicken, beans, and cornbread. We were on the dining plan, so we also received a very large brownie. The food was good and came with plenty enough to share with my 9 year old son. The restaurant was under renovation, so everything was served in a to-go type box from a... More

We had lunch here during our October 2014 trip. We all were not the biggest fans of the coleslaw but everything else was pretty tasty. I ordered the rib and chicken combo. This definitely a good pick for a quick-service restaurant. Tip: we got here as they were opening and the line was very minimal

The main restaurant is closed for refurbishment, but they had a kiosk open to serve some of their main dishes. About half of our group, including myself had the pulled pork sandwich. It was very good. They were also serving chicken and ribs separately and as combos. They looked pretty tasty. Once you get your food from the kiosk there... More

We finally tried Flame Tree BBQ. During our visit, there was only a quick service stand option. You could get a rib / chicken combo with baked beans and cornbread for about $16.00. The chicken was excellent - great seasoning. The ribs were more dry than I like. I'm glad I tried, but not as good as I thought it... More

This has been one of my favorite quick service WDW meals of all time. However this last trip it was closed for refurbishing and they were selling their food out of a Kiosk. The turkey legs were still pretty good and the cornbread and beans were almost as good as usual. Unfortunately, the chicken and ribs were not freshly cooked... More

Located in the Discovery Island section of the park, Flame Tree offers a quick service meal of BBQ meat with ample seating and quick service. There are not many good qualities after that. The food is less than stellar, verging on the edge of disgusting. My sister actually had to throw her meal away and just have a popcorn lunch.... More

The BBQ is good, but the sauces are great! I like the spicy one, which I use on the scrumptious salad. I try to go every visit.

Flame Tree has a limited menu, but everything they serve is great, you also get a very large portion with it. Every time we visit animal kingdom we will eat here now, because with the Disney Dining Plan one of these meals is one dining credit and we can usually feed our family of 5 with three meals with extra...

i was surprised that both the ribs and pulled pork were on a par with more common BBQ joints. The only downsides were the $$$ and lack of table seating. Finding an open table is an experience not to be wished upon anyone. Since most are under some sort of shade, they are mostly occupied by guests simply taking a... More
