Actually quite good BBQ

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... read more

This is a relaxing meal of good BBQ and a real nice outdoor ample seating atmosphere with levels, ponds and scenery. They have a limited menu of Chicken, ribs and sandwiches but it is good and reasonable by Disney standards. The sides are great also. The atmosphere is relaxing and good for families.

If you like barbecue, then you will like Flame Tree Barbecue. A slab of ribs, half chicken, pulled pork even a fruit plate....large area of outside seating in the shade. Nice place to relax, eat and cool off.

Definitely one of the best quick service restaurants; the smell as you walk by entices you in! They serve the best chicken and beans.

We have eaten at the Flame Tree Barbecue on every trip we have made. It is fast food a fast food style restaurant, but the food is really good. The staff is always very polite and friendly. The open patio seating is great and always clean. My only dislike is the amount of birds begging for food.

This place has moved at Animal This place has moved but still has excellent barbecue. The ribs were juicy and falling off the bone. The chicken was also delicious. My only complaint was trying to carry my tray to the seating area nearby which is down staircases. However, it is near a small pond and pretty.

While at Disney's Animal Kingdom, we had great difficulty deciding where all of us could equally enjoy dining. One child and I dined at Restaurantosaurus, and my husband and our other child brought their food from Trilo-Bites with them to Restaurantosaurus. There is one standard plate: turkey leg, baked beans, and Mexican corn bread - all items were delicious. There... More

This used to be great BBQ. They are obviously updating the facilities and are in temporary kiosks. The BBQ has good flavor but in most part is dried up. Not moist & juicy like it used to be. I would hold off until they're back in permanent facilities.

It is still closed but we were able to get the combo at a kiosk around the corner. We talk about their food all year long the rub with the spicy bbq sauce is fantastic!

When we went, the restaurant was closed for renovation, but a few of the kiosks and food carts carried the dishes normally served at Flame Tree. We went to a cart serving the pulled pork sandwiches and loved them. The meat was juicy and flavorful. I think it was about $9 for a large sandwich and chips, which isn't terrible... More
