Flame Tree Barbecue on Discovery Island at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

One of the best-loved counter-service restaurants at Walt Disney World, Flame Tree Barbecue at Disney's Animal Kingdom is hard not to notice.

Located on Discovery Island, Flame Tree is certainly eye grabbing with its bright, festive paint and animal carvings.

A crocodile with a fish in his jaws welcomes you in, bats and anteaters buttress the roof, meerkats hold up the menus, reptiles and owls adorn the signs and chairs— there are animals everywhere you look, many of them feasting on those lower in the food chain in a Circle of Life theme that begins to feel deliciously cheeky when you are digging into your barbecue.


The menu at Flame Tree is a cut above the average counter-service fare, offering up tender barbecue chicken, ribs, and pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, chicken salad, and French fry or onion ring baskets (or fruit plates, if you are feeling more health-conscious).

For the kids, there are chicken drumsticks and hot dogs, and, for dessert, chocolate mousse and key lime mousse cups.

Outdoor Seating

At Flame Tree, only outdoor seating is available, although there are covered pavilions to the left of the ordering area.

Venture beyond the pavilions and you will find tables Flame Tree's open-air seating area, which, with its lush foliage, stone walls, and peaceful reflecting pool, is one of the loveliest places to eat in Animal Kingdom.

Many tables down by the water have a stunning view of Expedition Everest.

If you are looking for a good, filling meal that provides a change of pace when it comes to quick-service menus, Flame Tree Barbecue is for you.

Come hungry and stay for the beautiful scenery.

Tip: Since it is under the trees and on the water, some might find Flame Tree's seating area too muggy on very hot days and might prefer an indoor counter-service meal at Pizzafari or Restaurantosaurus.
