Flame Tree BBQ at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

This review is written about one of the staples of Animal Kingdom’s counter service restaurants, Flame Tree Barbecue.

Flame Tree BBQ is set back in Discovery Island near Dinoland.  I love this restaurant because it has a lot of tables, chairs and shaded spots to sit.  The landscape around it is tropical and nice; not to mention the food is wonderful.  This is one of the restaurants that makes me love counter service at Disney.

Our lunch consisted of a Ribs and Chicken Combo, a Smoked Chicken Salad and a Fruit Plate.

First up comes, the Ribs and Chicken Combo.  This combo comes with a huge amount of BBQ chicken and ribs plus coleslaw and baked beans. It has great flavor and very tender meat. The baked beans and coleslaw were your typical baked beans and coleslaw but complimented the meat well.

Next up is the smoked chicken salad.

I highly recommend this salad to anyone that eats at Flame Tree.  It consisted of freshly-smoked chicken, mixed greens, arugula, shredded carrots, pinto and garbanzo beans, tortilla chips and corn, tossed in house-made balsamic vinaigrette and drizzled with chipotle ranch dressing.  It is not only filling but light enough that you don’t feel so weighted down.

Third up is the Fruit Plate.

Holy Smokes, it was bigger than we were expecting.  We got it for my 5 year old daughter because it comes with fresh fruit and yogurt but it took all four of us to finish the fruit plate.  The fruit was your typical melons with strawberries, grapes and pineapple and this awesome honey yogurt.

For dessert we had the chocolate mousse and key lime mousse.  Probably my least favorite of anything we ate but it satisfied the palette after lunch.
