Flame Tree Barbecue

When you are heading into Dinoland from Discovery Island you will see Flame Tree Barbecue, a favorite Animal Kingdom counter service restaurant, beckoning you.  From the bright, hand carved sign, to the sweet smells of the tasty barbecue sauce, Flame Tree will not disappoint! It is one of the best counter service locations at Animal Kingdom Park.  They have generous seating, around the corner from the walk up ordering window.  Be aware, though, that since you are eating amongst lush vegetation in the seating area, there are sometimes birds around.

Food here includes: ribs, chicken, beef, and pork options served with baked beans and a corn muffins, sandwiches, salads, fruits, and various sides and desserts.  Refreshments available here include beer and wine and most all meat entrees include the great Flame Tree meat rub and barbecue sauce!  You can view their full menu HERE.

Flame Tree BBQ is part of the Disney Dining Plan, and counts as a counter service credit.  They serve lunch and dinner, and are typically open until the park closes.

Overall, we give Flame Tree BBQ an “A”.

    Best counter service at Animal Kingdom. Meals are big enough to share.

    I always have this on my list before hitting the parks. Flame Tree is one of the best QS meals in all of WDW. Ribs and Chicken combo is a great way to use a dining plan credit. Enough to share.

    The plates here are huge so it’s a great place to share a QS and make your dining plan go further.

    Our all time favorite CS meal. We will go to AK just to eat at Flame Tree. YUMMY

    We ate here for the first time in December. Had to go a second time because my husband and daughter liked the ribs and chicken so much! Great place to just sit and relax too!

    This was a nice break from the park, with the seating area pretty secluded. No complaints on the food from anyone in our group. My daughter kept stealing my chicken. :) And it’s definitely different than most of the quick service places. A nice change of pace.

    My father-in-law will cross the park for this BBQ! It really is yummy. I like the BBQ salad with a nice cold dark beer. The seating area is in a nice shady area. It is quiet and calming. I definitely recommend Flame Tree BBQ!
