Just another Flying Saucer. Not the best or worse one in my opinion. The atmosphere is ok and the beer selection is average. There are better places around town.

Great beer selection, but donít expect an education on craft beers. Staff are always busy, does seem understaffed.
However if you know beers, and know what you like/want , then youíre in for a treat. Be nice, and staff are nice back, and youíll find more tasters flow ;)

Visited February 2012.
This was very busy this particular night, but I guess I canít compare it to anything. It happened to be trivia night so that may have had something to do with it. Parking was interesting given the large parking lot as most of the open spots were marked for the Mexican restaurant next door. Inside is the requisite large collection of plates/saucers on the ceiling belonging to people that have tried the most different beers on tap. Also, much like a lot of the beer nerd bars in TX they have a ton of different taps. I made sure to try some locals. They also had some left over glasses from the last election. This is a fun place to hang out and despite being further from where I was staying I enjoyed it about as much as Ginger Man.

Locally owned chain of craftbeer bars in the DFW area. Nice selection of bottles. Although the tap list is large...the quality and availability of great beers can be hit or miss. Given the money spent on this type of establishment I was suprised to find them not that clean. Whenever I visit they always seem a bit like a frat crowd just passed through and the staff hadnít time to clean up yet. Nonetheless, it is a great place to experiment with a variety of beers. Also, the food is good enough but not noteworthy.

Visited on a Monday night for beers around 8:30ish. It was pretty busy, which surprised me some. This is a big loud place, featuring a pretty typical Flying Saucer layout, with tables throughout and a big bar with a ton of tap handles. Despite being parked in the middle of a generic suburban parking lot, it had a nice pub feel. Specifically, the space makes good use of open air, real comfortable around the edges. I came here for Live Oak Hefe, and was not disappointed. It was on, fresh, and delicious. Also very much enjoyed a Deep Ellum IPA. Overall, a great spot to grab a beer in this part of town.
82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

visited a couple years ago. If I recall correctly, itís a typical Flying saucer, huge, tons of taps, industrial feel, bad service when theyíre busy, they tend to forget about you unless you are at the bar, because they seem to be under staffed.

Your typical Flying Saucer. Nice selection and deals on Texas beers on the Sunday I stopped in. $3 pints of selected brews from what I remember. Nothing rare or surprising on tap, but a nice variety including some fresh local IPAs. Food at this place is pretty underwhelming overall, but I was there for the beer.

Great selection, but it has a commercial feel to it. Staff is business-like and a bit pushy. No love for the beer or customer.
If you can get past that, great things are to be had.

Itís another Flying Saucer, what do you want? The waitresses know jack about beer and when itís crowded, you wait forever for beer. That being said, you might catch me here on a weeknight for trivia or something.
