I've read lots of reviews that raved about the food here. We actually ate here 10 years ago. We must have hit them on a bad day. The line and ordering process was chaotic at best. Ordering for our gluten free teen was not easy and there was little to choose from. Our food was dry and cold by the... More

We had lunch here and the food was really good. We enjoyed the BBQ pulled pork sandwiches although we wished we would have split a sandwich. We would definitely come back and eat here again.

We had a nice lunch- the food was good but portions were small. My husband and I shared the rib/chicken combo. It was tasty but definitely not big enough to share(the photo showed a generous serving). Our daughter had the half chicken only- she liked it($7.99). I also got the Safari fruit plate($7.19). It was good-but a little pricey.

This was the best food we had at Walt Disney World and the counter service was faster than all the other locations. The 1/2 slab of ribs is a big enough portion to split and there are plenty of tables.

This is my 3rd time to eat here over the years and i still love it. It is a great value for a quick service credit. My son and I each had the chicken and ribs which comes with beans and slaw. They are not "Memphis BBQ", but pretty darn good for Disney BBQ. The smell is the best, drawing... More

My family loved this quick service restaurant! We ate here based on a friend's recommendation and the pictures on Trip Advisor. The three of us each got the rib and chicken combo with baked beans and cole slaw. I did like the chicken the best but the ribs were tasty. I like my ribs to fall off the bone, and... More

We made it a point to have lunch here because we had heard so many good things. The food was very good and the portions were big. There is plenty of seating right by the water. I would definitely dine here again while at Animal Kingdom and would recommend that you do too, especially if you like BBQ!

Don't get the ribs, buy the pulled pork sandwich, for $7.50 cant go wrong, get water and a small side of beans, great meal. The ribs are hard and chewy, not worth the price.

We have eaten at The Flame Tree BBQ multiple times with the last being in Oct. 2014. The food is your typical Disney Counter Service meal. Basic menu, not a lot of variety. I would only recommend this place if you are using the Disney Dining Plan as I would not pay out of pocket to eat here. There are... More

Good food in Animal Kingdom if you are hungry. Also good if you need to eat quick to get onto the next FP+ in 35 to 45 minutes. This is now the 3rd time we have eaten here. Each time I have gotten the Chicken and Ribs combo. Plenty of food and above average taste. My wife got the Smoked... More
