Distinctly Patriotic Bunting Added to Regal Eagle Smokehouse at Epcot

As we continue to keep an eye on the yet-to-open Regal Eagle Smokehouse at Epcot, we noticed some distinctly patriotic bunting has been added above the entrance to the BBQ eatery.

With little finishing touches like this and some pressure washing taking place yesterday, it seems like the location will be opening in the next week or so, conservatively.

The restaurant takes its name from the venerable Sam Eagle, the Muppet known for his patriotism and strict sense of duty and honor. He takes all things seriously … and barbecue is certainly one of those things. Regal Eagle Smokehouse will be the site for “Sam’s Centennial Cook-Off: A Salute to All Cook-Offs but Mostly Barbecue.” Guests will be the beneficiaries of this contest – described as “a competition fit for all patriots and pit masters” – as it brings in a variety of classic backyard barbecue selections from across the country to vie for Sam’s top honor (for more details on the menu, click here).

Sam’s unmistakable visage will be part of the décor at this new restaurant. For instance, you’ll see him on the sign as you walk in …

He will also be incorporated into new Regal Eagle Smokehouse merchandise available exclusively at this tasty locale.
