Delicious Pulled Pork

We come to this restaurant every time we visit Animal Kingdom. They have a limited menu, mostly barbecue fare, but the sauce is flavorful and worth trying. We get the pulled pork sandwiches every time -- they're that good. Outdoor seating makes for a cool atmosphere. There is no table service, you... read more

I'm not hard to please but this was a disappointment. The aroma drew us in. Several of us had the pulled pork. It was not bad but tasteless. The others had the ribs and were very disappointed. It was hard to find any meat on them and what was found was dried out.

We visited this restaurant during a particularly hot day visiting Animal Kingdom. Service was friendly and the food was awesome, there is a choice between pulled pork, turkey legs, ribs and other dishes. We had the turkey leg which was enormous, but had to be done! There was plenty of shady seating and unlimited bbq sauce to be had. Would... More

This is a welcome pace to many other food attractions. Good prices and good food. One of our favorite places to eat in Animal Kingdom.

This is another one of our favorites and I was excited to try out this freshly refurbished quick service restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Since the rib entree is our favorite, we both ordered the same thing. The ribs were as good as always. Dry rubbed and meaty. Perhaps these were even more meaty and appeared to be a bit... More

This is quick and easy - the chicken and ribs were both delicious. The portions are large and the service is quick. Also the fries are crispy and delicious. Definitely a great place to grab a bite without taking too much time out of your park experience - indeed it adds to it!

Like many others I stopped here to grab a bite. Its a counter service style where your drinks and food arrive from two differing points. Service is painfully slow. Food wise you know because its Disney you are not allowed to bring in your own possibly healthier food but to their credit they serve your child menu hotdog with grapes... More

Tried Flame Tree and wasn't impressed. I've read many rave reviews about how great it is, honestly I've had better BBQ from Sonny's. I'm not sure what everyone is crazy about, the chicken was really dry, portion size was small.

Flame Tree recently reopened after a refurbishment and it did not disappoint. I had the chicken and ribs combo (dining plan) which came with beans and cornbread (I think it came with beans/slaw in past). Oh boy, was it delicious! The chicken was very moist and falling of the born; the jalapeno cornbread was out of this world good. I... More
