Flame Tree Barbecue

Description from PassPorter's Walt Disney World Guidebook:

Although we’re not sure how barbecue fits in with the Animal Kingdom motif, we can’t knock it, because it’s good stuff. Pork, chicken, turkey, and beef are smoked right on premises and is available sliced on sandwiches ($9.99–$10.99) and arrayed on platters ($13.99–$19.99). The condiment stations offer traditional and mustard-based barbecue sauces. French fries with pulled pork and cheese ($6.49) is a fun alternative. Chicken drumstick, chicken sandwich, and PB&J for the kids ($5.49–$5.99). Shaded outdoor seating in a lovely Asian garden or on decks overlooking the lake and Expedition Everest. Mobile ordering through the My Disney Experience app is available here.

We loved this place 5 years ago, and we loved it again! Great use of a DDP QS credit! Delicious BBQ in huge portions!

Used to be one of our favorite places to eat, but since they removed the fruit platter, my daughter no longer wants to eat here.

Love this place. The food is great and there are lots of nice places to sit outside! Definitely the best counter service in the park and possibly in all parks!

One of my favorite QS eateries in WDW. Great tasting food with good size portions!

BBQ Ribs and Chicken...yes! Best place in this park to get food that you know and like. Some of the best views in the park for sitting and eating (outside). Look for tables by the river where you can see Everest. This was is on our lunch list every time we visit.

Great place to east. Variety of foods

Excellent barbecue and sides. The birds will try and get your food, don't leave it unattended.

Could be the best meal value in all of Walt Disney World. Tasty food for a reasonable price!

This is one of the only counter service on Tables in Wonderland.

Good barbecue and great portions. Sometimes difficult to find a seat.

great fruit plate! Love sitting in shaded terrace
amberj gave this a rating of 7 on 06/16/2016 at 11:40:03 pm EDT

Large portions. The food is good and I love the seating.
tinae159 gave this a rating of 8 on 06/15/2016 at 1:53:48 am EDT

Easy enough to split meals as plenty of food for two and quite tasty. Seating area is spread out and birds can be an issue. Setting is pretty.
wdwfun4 gave this a rating of 8 on 06/14/2016 at 9:21:05 am EDT

Chicken and Rib combo enough for 2 people to split. Very good too
handette gave this a rating of 9 on 06/13/2016 at 7:20:38 pm EDT

Did not like the food here. It does have a great seating area.
MayraLR gave this a rating of 5 on 06/13/2016 at 3:55:41 pm EDT

I like the food, but they are unwilling to make an substitutions or changes, and have not been very nice about it.
plutofan4 gave this a rating of 8 on 06/12/2016 at 5:31:42 pm EDT

Nice fast food. Outdoor seating with lots of birds. Good lunch place.
Big G gave this a rating of 7 on 06/11/2016 at 6:47:27 pm EDT

Perhaps the best counter service restaurant at WDW. Excellent BBQ especially the combination platter that now includes pulled pork. Plenty for two. Fantastic seating area that winds down all the way to the river. Great place to sit in the shade and cool off looking at Expedition Everest and the
Rives of Light area.
rickgaille gave this a rating of 10 on 06/11/2016 at 10:03:33 am EDT

Great quick service meal. When you walk up it looks like a regular food service window-but go around back to enjoy your meal in the beautiful hidden courtyard that overlooks one of the most beautiful areas of the park. Covered or picnic style seating available to get out of the sun or rain, Generous portions of really good bbq food-portions to share!
dderesin gave this a rating of 8 on 06/10/2016 at 3:28:20 pm EDT

Great views from the seating area and the food is great.
