Prepare your taste buds for something special, because a new fast-casual barbecue restaurant featuring craft brews on tap will debut at The American Adventure pavilion in Epcot later this year.
Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue will take the place of Liberty Inn, which will close July 8 to make way for this mouth-watering experience in World Showcase.
The new location will be a modern barbecue smokehouse, with all the accompanying sights, sounds, smells and flavors you love – including a large smoker preparing fine food every day right on the pavilion’s promenade. There will also be a redesigned patio for you to enjoy, so get ready to grab a brew, some barbecue, and relax inside Epcot.
Many more details to come, so keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for updates on what is sure to be a new favorite spot to find some tasty and tangy bites at Epcot!
I sure hope they’ll still offer the “Plant-Based Burger” that we love so much…?
This change is perfect. The world showcase must represent the strength of cuisine. Some cajun food would also be significant.
Is there an opening date set for this location yet? I will be there during the week of Nov. 18, and would love to try this!!!
Every year we try to make it there to get a lunch or dinner and we always have other plans. I will admit we will miss the inside sitting there to cool down after the heat of the day in World Showcase. I hope it lends itself to allowing overheated guests to get some AC even without eating there, like it does right now.
Sounds great! My husband and I were recently at Epcot checking off the pavilions or “countries” where we’ve enjoyed a sit down meal. That’s when we realized that the American Adventure doesn’t really have a true dining attraction to compare with Le Cellier or Les Chefs de France. Looking forward to the new improvements! This sounds like a great place to settle in and escape the heat.
For those who will be missing The Liberty Inn, I think The Electric Umbrella in Future World has a similar menu.
Our favourite place to grab a burger and a beer going to be closed on our next visit from the UK. We come twice a year and like to relax at this location as we love the Amercan Pavilion. Will this be quick service or dining plan. Full restaurant?
New things are sometimes good and needed and this sounds like a good idea but also heartbroken to see this go. I remember this spot was a usual for my family when I was growing up. As long as they keep a nostalgic feel to what it currently is, all is well.
Good move. I hope they add pulled chicken and some Double IPA beers.
This sounds really good, but we are going to miss the Liberty Inn. We are AP holders & Liberty Inn was always our ‘go to’ for a simple, affordable & tasty lunch for our family.
Aww, sad about the Liberty Inn! Where can I get that great hot dog now? 🙂 It’s one of our family’s favorite places.
I also hope there are vegan options
Sounds Awesome and I love Barbecue and I can’t wait to eat in the Barbecue Restaurant at Epcot!
Will there be vegan options? Hate the idea of losing Beyond Burger. :/
I hope they use Sam Eagle from the Muppets in the restaurant with a name like that!
This sounds great to me! I’m looking forward to it.
Will this be a quick Service location on the Dining Plan?
This sounds exciting but I’m sad to be losing Liberty Inn it was always a favorite place to go and hangout.
Also what about the food that just came out for guardians awesome mix will that be moving to a new location for the rest of the summer?
