Flame Tree Barbecue - Meal at Animal Kingdom

For those who want to eat at Animal Kingdom but want to escape the famous burger and chips, Flame Tree Barbecue is without a doubt a great option!

What stands out in this restaurant is the famous American rib that can be accompanied by a delicious roast chicken. 

We went to this restaurant for the first time on our last trip of 2019, whoever accompanies us on Instagram saw what we ate there.

In this trip we made a different scheme and tried to split more meals in several restaurants to bring more reviews and content for you!

Already giving a spoiler! Flame Tree Barbecue has become one of my quick services restaurants favorite within Disney parks.

So enough wind and let's go to our review:

What does Flame Tree Barbecue look like?

You will be ordering at your own station for this, as the tables where you are going to eat are in a more reserved place, in the middle of a “#8220;

The cool thing is that this restaurant offers many places to sit, where some are covered and others are in the umbrella of the trees.

It has so many places to sit that when Nath and I are done eating, we get lost to go back to & #8220; ehehehhe we even had to ask information for the cast member who was clearing some tables.

For tables to be in an open place, it is not always pleasant to stay there when it is very hot, very rainy or on very cold days. But when the day is mild or the sun is gone, it's wonderful to stay there.

The tables that are closest to the Discovery River (Discovery River), provide the visitor with a super view of roller coaster Everest, one of the most beloved Disney.

Not only can you eat with amazing views, it's also a good place for a beautiful photo, like the one I took from Nath

How is the food?

As we speak the Flame Tree Barbecue's flagship is very American-style ribs, but you'll find other types of dishes there.

We didn't even eat the ribs ourselves, we ate a plate of Mc and Cheese (that famous macaroni and cheese) and a pulled pork.

Accompanied Onion Rings and a coleslaw! See photo below

Well, as I spoiled at the beginning of this post, it was one of the best quick service foods I've ever eaten.

This is not to say that the food was amazing, because it was not! But for the normal level of quick service we found in the parks it was way above it!

There you will find: salad mix of green leaves, roasted chicken, pork sandwiches and the various combinations of ribs and chicken.

Video in the Restaurant

Whenever we eat there we show a lot in Instagram stories and we’ve already included a video in our Youtube channel also.

Follow the video for you to see a little bit of what it's like to eat there!

Where is the Flame Tree Barbecue?

This delicious quick service from Disney is located in the Discovery Island area, very close to the 3D cinema with the theme of the movie "The insect life", the attraction "It`s Tough to be a Bug”At the Animal Kingdom park.

It's very easy to find it, if you are already in the Discovery Island region, just approach the 3D cinema, if you are outside that area, just get to it and you will find it.

What are the prices of Flame Tree Barbecue?

The price is what is usually applied in other Quick Service restaurants of the same style.

An adult ends up spending about $ $15 per meal to eat real food, which turns out to be a place inside the park that offers a pretty cool price.

What we usually do is share dishes, so we can save on these meals throughout the day, we usually take cookies or some snacks so that hunger gets too tight.

Just because we know that quick service restaurants have reasonable food and the cost of food can be a big villain in your travel budget.

For those looking for a cool place to eat while visiting Animal Kingdom and the weather is not extreme (very cold or very hot), the Flame Tree Barbecue is a great choice for a bite to eat and a rest.

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets arriving in Orlando or even on the day of the park.

We do not in any way recommend that you do this for a variety of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MAINLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!
