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.
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”.
