    Exclamation Epcot's Liberty Inn to Be Replaced by Regal Eagle Smokehouse

    One of Epcot's quick dining staples is closing next month to make way for a new craft beer and BBQ hot spot:

    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.

    I am not a fan of this idea.
    We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together

    Anybody else think of the Regal Beagle from Three's Company when they saw this name?? Maybe I'm aging myself.

    What is more quintessentially American than good 'Cue and Brew and maybe Funnel Cake or Apple Pie for dessert.

    Looking forward to trying this place out on my next visit.

    Give me a good Barbecue Sampler Platter, a Yuengling (America's Oldest Brewery) Lager and a slice of Apple Pie a la mode and I will be good for an afternoon!! LOL

    A couple of nice, meaty ribs, some brisket, some chicken - with freash made cole slaw & hand-dipped onion rings. Oh, and a nice cold lager to wash it all down. Bring it on!

    The down side is, then you've got to walk (waddle?) all the way back out of the park from there.

    And please, no Mission Space immediately after either!

    If it is actually "Florida" BBQ, then you might get some 'gator and other 'interesting' flavors. LOL

    I am actually hoping they have Texas, Memphis, and Carolina BBQ's represented.

    That would be nice.

    I've often wondered why (outside of the food and wine festival) they haven't had more "regional" USA flavors /dishes offered.






    .... inside the food and wine festival its too crowded to eat.

    This quick service has been lacking for years and its nice to see them embracing something like BBQ instead of cruddy "american" hot dogs and hamburgers. I would love to see some Lexington Q represented!

    Sad about this. Liberty Inn was always a favorite spot for a quick meal in air conditioned comfort, and often sitting outside. This change will kill relaxing at Liberty Inn for us due to loss of the current menu, but mostly due to the disgusting smell of beer.

    Can't have good Tx or Memphis BBQ outside of those locales. If china is any indication on they offer the quick serve food, then it'll be bad..Think MRE bbq. China's food tastes like Panda Express.

    They should keep it to hot dogs and burgers, just make them good. Chicago dog, old fashioned, chili, etc. Make good burgers, not the usual hockey pucks.

    Liberty Inn, another classic memory dies. However, I disagree about FW. The lobster roll is a must.

    I really liked their burgers. I will miss it. I was surprised by how many people are saying they don't like it. I don't eat a lot of fast food at home, so that may be why I enjoyed it more.
