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.

This place is cool. Itís in the middle of strip-mall suburbia heaven, but that just makes it more amazing that is has such a great tap list. Regular pub and restaurant food.

December 2010. Although like any Saucer, this place had a long list of beer offerings, this was the least impressive Iíd seen in terms of unusual offerings. There were about 7 choices from Texas, but Iíd hoped for more local/regional picks. The bartender was efficient if a bit stand-off-ish. Biggest turnoff here was the smoking, which never helps the flavor of your beer.

I love this place!
The interior is quite nice, the girls are beautiful, itís too noisy (well, on a holiday eve with sports on tv, itís packed with people), a bit dark... but they have a wide selection of beers, some very good, and they allow samplers!

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.

Went here for lunch on Labor Day. Supossivly $2.75 Texas Pints, but according to my bill Real Ale isnít a Texas brewer...Easy parking. Large interior with typical flying saucer plates on the walls and roof. Smoking is still allowed inside, and the person next to me was capitalizing on it. Large and quite decent selection for Texas. Maharaja on tap was probably a stand out. Lots of Texas Locals including Devilís Back Bone. Waitresses and Bartenders were very nice but new little about beer or their selection. They have two casks running. I asked what they were, and they said St. Arnold and Avery. I asked which Avery, and they said it was "Avery Cask Ale"...Turns out it was the IPA. Food was quite good, and prices were fair. Will return.

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.

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.

Went with some friends and also met legion242 and his daughter here. Good service, apologies for not remembering out waitressís name. Pretty nice selection in bottle and draught, and the hot pretzels were really good. Sexy outifts definitely cater to the yuppie men crowd, but they were more subdued than, say, Hooters. Would definitely go back here and will try others, too.

Like the Nashville location I frequent, the selection is great. The bar is not as big or cool as the Nashville location, and the facility is smaller. Service is good, beer knowledge of the staff is not. Flying Saucer has what they call a Fire Sale every night, which is basically a pint for $2.50. According to one of my good friends, This location can put some good stuff on sale, like Stone Arrogant Bastard and IPA, while Nashville puts up the mediocre stuff no one is drinking. They also bring in brewer reps who give out free beer. The edge goes to Addison!!!
