      Positive aspects of the product (pros): delicious, great value
      Cons: long lines

      Visited AK the end of Sept. 2014 and knew from the AllEars reviews that Flame Tree was the best choice. So glad we did. The prices are high of course like everything in Disney, but are the best value we found in any of the parks. Some of the meals we got were the fruit platter, Turkey sandwich, chicken sandwich, and 1/2 chicken. All were tasty and large portions, the food seemed extremely fresh.
      Highly recommend.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): great value BBQ food and lovely setting

      fantastic food in a beautiful setting. We watched turtles play in the water and there was plenty of shaded seating even in August.
      We each had the rib/chicken platter. My daughter subbed the side for grapes.
      Desserts weren't fantastic but we were full after our entrees so it didn't spoil the meal and probably wouldn't have ordered dessert had we not been on the dining plan anyway.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good sized portions, amazing food, beautiful covered outside seating, the birds wandering around
      Cons: Nothing!

      This is a counter service we look forward to on every trip and it's not disappointed us yet! The food is very good, portions are large enough that my husband, teen, tween and myself shared 3 meals and still threw food away. The line moves very quickly and there is ample seating, much of it under canopies and there's a never ending parade of various birds roaming around searching for a dropped french fry- very fun to watch and not to be missed!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): great food
      Cons: non english speaking castmembers

      We ate here May 17, this was our second visit. The line was long but went quickly until it was our turn. Our party of 5 consisted of 2 meal plans so a person from each had to be there to order. The others went to find seating which can be a problem since this restaurant is so popular. My order consisted of the ribs/chicken combo and childs drumstick meal. We had the meal plan. After you ordered you moved to another window to pick up your food. This is where the problem started. The castmember had our order wrong and when I tried to correct her and tell her what was missing she argued back and started talking too fast so I couldn't understand her since her English was very broken. My son who works in food service tried to explain to her what was wrong with our order (we were missing our desserts and our drinks were wrong). After back and forth discussion another castmember came over since we were holding up the line and seen the error. They quickly corrected it and apologized. We found a nice shaded pavilion by the lake and the food was fantastic. Will eat here time and time again. I understand that castmembers can come from their native country and English can be difficult, but if you are working in customer service you should be able to articulate enough so that problems don't arise.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): great food and lines move quickly
      Cons: only got to eat there once this trip

      My family LOVES Flame tree. We eat here at least once every year. It's the best quick serve restaraunt at the world. Being from the south I know ribs and theirs are really good. In 7 years we have never gotten dry or tough ones. Beans are good but the slaw needs a little work.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Lovely covered sitting areas
      Cons: Food was not very good at all

      Kind of disappointed after eating here May 2. The ribs were really dry and the pork sandwich was bland. The onion rings were good, though. I didn't mind my smoked chicken salad, but it wasn't great. The best part of the meal was sitting in the shade looking at Expedition Everest. Wouldn't really recommend eating here.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Delicious Food!
      Cons: None

      We ate here the last week of March 2014. We purchased 2 half chicken platters with baked beans and slaw and the fruit plate with honey yogurt. My husband and I split the chicken platter, shared the fruit plate and it was plenty of food. Everything was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The only thing we didn't care for was the honey yogurt dip. We always get water and it tasted fine. We love eating here every time we go to the AK.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Large Portions; Conveinent Location
      Cons: Poor Dessert Selection

      I have always thought the dining choices at Animal Kingdom to be quite limited and not very good. Flametree Barbeque is the exception. The choices are varied enough for everyone to find something they like and the portions are large enough and quite filling. We ate here for the first time on our last trip and it won't be our last. While the desserts are less than exciting, you can always get fruit instead. The dining area is amongst the trees which is nice (and is covered) but the condiment location is somewhat far away from the seating areas.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): food
      Cons: dessert

      We eat here every trip, the only thing that isn't great are the desserts, YUCK! They will give fresh fruit in place of the other dessert choices. We will go here every time.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): BBQ Chicken
      Cons: Can be a hike to the condiments

      This is a real gem. The BBQ chicken is quite nice as is the ribs. The chicken is especially (and surprisingly) moist. The only issue is locating the condiment station for utensils, napkins, sauces, etc. Not a problem is you get a close table, but annoying if you have to park your food at a table or walk around with your tray to find a napkin.

      We've eaten there twice in the 2 years and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Portion Size & Atmosphere
      Cons: None

      We visited Flame Tree BBQ on 1/9 and loved it!

      This was our first experience with Flame Tree BBQ and we were very impressed. We love trying new quick service options and getting the most out of our quick service credit.

      I first got the idea to visit Flame Tree BBQ from an excellent article on Allears.net. I loved how Jack went into all the details on how the imaginers made sure all of the seating had a strong attention to detail and had a theme.

      We went as a party of 7 and used a total of 6 Quick Service credits (We had one couple share their meal). We all ordered the Ribs & Chicken combo that came with coleslaw and baked beans. It was EXCELLENT! The portions were a great size. Each plate had 3-4 ribs and 1-2 pieces of chicken. Both meat options were cooked to perfection. The sides of beans and coleslaw are smaller (about 4 bites) but we were all very full. They were both excellent as well. It was great to get some smoked ribs/chicken that as perfectly done.

      Dessert was great as well with the options of Chocolate mousse or Key Lime mousse. We had a mixture of each between the 6 meals.

      Here are some tips I learned:
      - You can substitute the baked beans for grapes OR carrot sticks
      - You can upgrade your drink to a large covered under the quick service plan
      - There is plenty of covered seating but there is some great views on the un-covered section as well.
      - Each of the covered sections has utensils, napkins and of course extra BBQ sauce
      - The Ribs/Chicken combo is shareable and plenty if you want to share. We had two adults who were still full of sharing the plate.

      Entrée (Ribs/Chicken) was $15.99
      Desserts were $3.99
      Drinks were $3.19

      I just wanted to share my quick thoughts. The meal was excellent and we can't wait to visit again!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Large portions
      Cons: food ok, birds

      After reading the reviews, we decided to give it a try, dd 10 had ribs, I had ribs and chicken. they were dried out, not a fan of beans or slaw. Dessert was gross. DD 10 did not like birds walking under our table while eating. Will not eat here again, but if you liked dried out meat, give it a go.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): portions
      Cons: not as good

      Was looking forward to eating here on Dec 9th as it was one of our favorite quick services in 2011. Really disappointed...and usually if somebody else cooks it and I don't have to clean it up, I am not picky! Ribs were dry and chewy, coleslaw was bland, and beans were not at all what I remembered. Chocolate dessert was good. We did eat here about 2ish so maybe it was just late enough in the day that the good stuff was gone so we will probably give them another try.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): onion rings

      We eat here every trip. this trip we had 1 child's hotdog with grapes carrots and soda. 2 ribs, 1 salad, and 1 chicken. The beans were more BBQ sauce based than sweet and the coleslaw was a bit dry nothing to rave about. The food was good thought. My child was still hungry and we ordered onion rings. the serving was quite big and he really enjoyed them. DS is almost 10 in a few weeks so his appetite this trip was different than in the past and we found that children's meals didn't cut it for portion or variety for his taste. For dessert we had the chocolate and the lime. Good but again not a must have. Not sure if we will go next trip since we tried Yak and Yeti an really enjoyed that a lot.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Allergy Free available
      Cons: none

      We need to be Gluten & Egg Free. Just tell cashier you have allergy problems and they buzz for a manager to come out. Gluten free chicken and ribs use a dry rub versus the liquid that is served on the precooked ones.
      I had the ribs and wife had the chicken.The side on typical menu are NOT GF.
      The manger had a book of all the allergy free products. With our meat we each got a side salad and watermelon. We shared a bottle of water. Meal is entered in by manger and prepared fresh in a clean designated area in the kitchen, so it took about 10-15 minutes.

      Our family members tried a rib and some of our chicken and said it was WAY better than theirs.

      Loved it! Great value. Our 5 days there, we only spent 30.00 a day (for 2) eating in parks. Ate breakfast in our condo at Bonnet Creek and dinner at some of the Bonnet Creek locations, still less than 35.00 for 2
