    Going to Tusker house in morning but will be there in Animal Kingdom for lunch also. What is a good counter service there? Thank you

    There are a few counter service options at the Animal Kingdom, but my favorite is the Flame Tree BBQ. This is located on Discovery Island, just to the right of the Tree of Life as you face the tree. The menu here emphasizes smoked meats including ribs, chicken, beef and pork. I always get the pulled pork sandwich with beans -- delicious. My oldest daughter's favorite is the salad with BBQ chicken; she actually talks about this at home quite regularly as being one of her best meals ever. My only issue with the Flame Tree is that the seating area is a bit spread out and confusing. We always try to sit by the river. This area is sort of down a bit and behind the restaurant and if you're not paying attention you could miss it.

    Another good option at the Animal Kingdom for counter service is the Pizzafari. This is on the other side of Discovery Island, to the left of the Tree of Life. This is, of course, great for kids who love pizza. There are also salads and some Italian deli-style sandwiches.

    Hope this gives you some ideas.
