A counter-service restaurant serving barbecue ribs, chicken, and pork. Sandwiches and combos are available, ranging from $9-16. There's abundant covered seating around back, with some nice views of the park's Mount Everest.

I always enjoy from the seating at this eatery. Really enjoy the pulled pork sandwich and onion rings here as well. - Will Sullivan

Very good barbecue. The outdoor seating is pretty and gives great views of Asia. The ribs were delicious, as was the chicken and the baked beans. I definitely recommend eating here. - Bryce McGibeny

Great way to break up the endless string of burgers on a budget. - Jacob Sundstrom

One of the best counter service restaurants in Disney World. Ribs are excellent. And, the seating areas are probably the best themed areas in Disney with fantastic views of the lake and Everest. Just great total ambiance. - Rob Pastor

This was much better than I expected for theme park barbecue. My partner and I shared a half-rack of ribs, which came with baked beans and cole slaw, and we ordered a side of fries. It wasn't too expensive and the meat was very tender! My boyfriend loved the barbecue sauce. It was also nice to sit down in the shade by the water to enjoy our food. - Renee Michelle

I thought Flame Tree's BBQ was very good. I had the half chicken while my family had the Pulled Pork. Both meals were great. However, there's only outdoor seating... and although there are probably 15 signs, AND notes on your tray people feed the birds. Which makes for some very annoy, but cute, dinner guests. Great little hide away from the usual burger and fries. - Terri Pierce

Excellent food, shady place to sit and nice views. The only downside are the ducks and other birds that inhabit the eating area. They are very persistent and will nip if they don't get what they want. Also, because they poop everywhere, you really need to watch where you walk. - Laura Daspit

Great barbecue, shaded area to sit, and nice views. This one is a winner. - Camille Kirk
