This is a great counter service meal at Animal Kingdom! Husband and I both ordered the ribs & chicken combo - delicious and a great use of a Disney counter credit meal. Dessert was good, but not spectacular. I wouldn't order the dessert again unless it was included in the dining plan.

This is my family's favorite quick service walk-up restaurant in Animal Kingdom. The barbecue chicken is moist, flavorful, hot, and delicious. The coleslaw and baked beans round out the dinner...which costly roughly $11. The turkey leg dinner is HUGE and also includes coleslaw and baked beans. We ordered the onion rings, which I think we will skip next time --... More

This is our oasis at Animal Kingdom. We love the smoked chicken salad. We have it every time we go. The seating area is vast and beautiful. We typically walk well into the seating area and get a table right on the water. A very relaxing respite in the middle of a very busy theme park.

Probably one of the best places to eat at Animal Kingdom. Food is pretty good and the outdoor seating area is a welcome break with the occasional flock of parrots flying overhead.

If you are on a dining plan you can get a lot of food for 1 quick service credit. It does only have outdoor seating, but the views are enjoyable down by the water.

This is our "go to" restaurant when visiting Animal Kingdom. Our trip isn't complete without a plate of chicken and ribs, fries and a plate of freshly cut fruit. The consistent quality of the food is what keeps us coming back - they've never disappointed. On this visit they had a vodka lemonade as a feature cocktail - we tried... More

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.
