Flame Tree Barbeque in Animal Kingdom is one of WDW's best counter service restaurants. We have eaten there twice on two separate trips to Disney and have not been disappointed. Their ribs and chicken are very good for a counter service restaurant and at a fairly reasonable price. The seating area is outside, but is shaded and has some overhead... More

I was hesitant to have lunch in here because they were renovating it, but they are operational, and the barbecue is very good, a dry rub and very tender with BBQ sauce on the side. They have a ton of seating, and very good views of a very pretty lake with faux Himalayas in the background. the side items are... More

This is our favorite eatery at Animal Kingdom. There is a variety of foods for all tastebuds, and the seating area is really lovely, as it the table areas and pavilion go all the way back to overlook the water. We also try to eat there early for lunch or for dinner, when the crowds aren't so heavy as it... More

As are all Disney restaurants the items are overpriced. However, you're on vacation. It is cafeteria style and the seating is outside, but shaded. Try the pulled pork sandwich.

The food was just OK. I won't eat there again. We had the salad, the ribs and fries. The chicken on the salad was tender and good but the salad was not amazing. My husband and son didn't like the sides that came with the ribs (beans and slaw). We ate by a small water feature with birds. Birds came... More

FTB provided a quick, tasty lunch right in the middle of our day at Animal Kingdom. It hit the spot. I look forward to returning here on our next visit.

I had heard this quick service place had very good BBQ, and we were not disappointed! You order your meall at the window, and then bring it to your table. It has outdoor seating, with tables spread around in the shade with some good views of AK. I had the BBQ chicken, my daughter had the BBQ beef sandwich, and... More

The food is average as BBQ goes, but for counter service at AK it is a decent choice. Personally I am not a fan in their ribs, but the sandwiches are fine. For ribs while at AK go to Rainforest Cafe Right outside the park. Lots more money but better ribs as well.

The Flame Tree Barbecue in Disney's Animal Kingdom is a walk up counter service restaurant that has wonderful food and is family friendly. If you use the meal plan, it is 1 counter service per person. The menu is barbecue chicken, pulled pork & ribs etc. It is always delicious. We always eat at the Flame Tree when we are... More
