This place is a beer drinkers heaven. Over 200 different kinds of beer available. Some beers are a little pricey, but overall, it is reasonable. You can go to this bar many times over and never drink the same beer twice if you want. And Another plus is that they will always be rotating their menu to add new beers and have more specialty beers during the different seasons. This place has become one of my main hangouts. I love it so much, that I joined the UFO club and am on a quest to drink 200 different beers. I Recomend this place to anyone who loves beer and or just wants to not drink the same few beers most every other resturant and bar serve.
::Edit:: Went back to the saucer this weekend, and decided i needed to up my review, becuase to me, this place is the perfect bar. many beers and a fun atmosphere with great service.

Possibly the best selection of beer ive ever seen in a bar. There are so many choices it is just hard to decide. The prices are very reasonable as well. Monday night is $2.50 pint night, that just cant be beat. And wednesday's you keep the glass night is great as well. The music is slightly loud but nothing too offensive. The waitstaff is great, and they really know their beers, and the women are dressed in short skirts and tight shirts, which is always a plus. I did not try the food, but I have been told it is very good. Overall I would say this is my new favorite place to go have a few pints.

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday - we were the first people in the door at about 11:45. Service was quick and prompt since there were more waitresses than there were diners, but it stayed good even after more customers came in. Large bar area dominates, with a large number of taps on the wall behind, and bottles above that. The ceiling is decorated with collector plates, and there are several small areas with couches. Very comfortable feel. Beer selection is fantastic, with a wide variety of both regional, national, and world wide beers. They also have some large bottles like 3 liter Duvels and other similar magnum offerings. I ordered a french dip sandwich, and my fiancee ordered a salad. Both were very well made, above average for bar food. The menu had a nice section describing beer styles, and gave recommended beer types for each offering. The food was mostly of the sandwich/salad variety, but most had an interesting twist.
All in all definitely a must visit if you are in the Dallas area.

I had a blast here! Looking at the menu at first...I couldn't even decide where to start. My first selection took me the longest. Anyway, very broad selection of beers on tap and bottled beers! The atmosphere was nice with sports playing on the TV's and the smoke was very tolerable as they have good ventilation. The service was very good and they seemed to have knowledge of the beer and yes they were easy on the eyes! A little loud, but is expected when that many people get together. I'll have to come back to this place! Cheers!

My favorite place to have a beer in DFW. They have a huge selection on tap and bottle. About 200 in total split pretty even between tap and bottle. They rotate beers in and out on a fairly regular basis and rarely run out of a beer. The quality is excellent and they are great about taking back a beer that you find off without asking questions. I go alot on Wed brewery nights (get a free glass from the sponsoring beer) and weekends and even during those heavy times I get great service - almost always get my next beer before I run dry. I had several of the menu items and the food is really good. Taste great and fit well with the beers. Overall the beer and food are great values. My only complaints are that it is very loud and smokey. I'm late 30's so it's probably just old-timers disease but I like to be able to hear the people at the table with me and not feel like I smoked a cartoon the next day. Better venilation would help. The other complaint is that the servers knowledge can be spotty. I've had several that were very knowledgable but had one the other night that tried to tell me that my flat New Belgium Skinny Dip was a low carb version Fat Tire (so wrong I had to laugh). Even with the smoke and noise, I'd never turn down a trip to the Saucer.

I heard of this place on Beeradvocate and i was at a pub near by and asked one of my friends if he wanted to brave the cold(40something) and walk over to the flying saucer to drink some quality brews. We made our way here and right off the bat this place looked good. The walls are covered with saucers from random places and of people who have drank over 200different beers their. They have 2.50 pint night on mondays and other specials throughout the week, the selection was great and they even use proper glassware for the style of brew. The food was good and everything was reasonably priced. Overall this place is a must go if looking for good beers in the area.

One of my favorite Dallas-area places to get good beer. You just can't beat selection. Period. Decor is unique and gives you something to look at (walls and ceiling completely covered in various saucers). Prices are reasonable, but their confounded beer-list uses a cryptic "symbol" method to indicate price. Okay so it's not *that* confusing, but if you've had a couple beers, it might take you a minute or two to figure out just exactly how much the beer you just ordered costs ;-)
Atmosphere is good, but my only complaint is that it can get terribly loud. You would think that with such a huge selection that more emphasis would be put on "beer culture" where you could talk about the beer and carry on a conversation. Not here, at least not the times I've been...if you are in the main section you will be lucky to hear yourself think. They do have an enclosed "patio" type area that is not quite as loud, so if you are bothered by not being able to talk with your friends, as I sometimes am, you can try to find some relief in this area.
Location is decent - it's a bit of a drive for me personally, but worth it. There are several other resturants in the same area, all of which designate certain areas as "their" parking, so sometimes it can be hard to find a spot. But otherwise not a difficult place to get in and out of.
Quality seems decent, no noticeably bad beer or food. Service is generally really good. Selection, again, is a beer lovers heaven on earth. And the food is surprisingly good.
They also have a special worth mentioning. Wednesdays they have a you buy the beer, you keep the glass special, and my roommates and I have amassed a sizeable collection. For the most part they are your standard 16-oz tumblers with the logo of the brewer or beer on it, but every now and again there is a different type of glass, which makes the trip especially worth it. Plus it almost forces you to try different types of beer, which is handy when you are with people who would normally not think twice about getting a Shiner or worse, * Light (*shudder*).
Selection is the obvious draw here, so in closing, this is a great place to try beers that may otherwise not be available to you.
PS> Oh, almost forgot, they have some amusing bar-wear too - I got their shirt that says: "Flying Saucer - Won't give you the Schlitz" :-D

Flying Saucer in Addison is a great place to go if you are tired of the same old dance club. There is a great selection here with a menu that is very helpful along with the chalkboard to remind you of seasonals and new arrivals. I have never had a problem with skunked beer. The music is actually tollerable on some nights and is not always too loud to think. There is a realaxing and somewhat dark ambiance here where u can sit and enjoy your beer after a long day under glowing flourescents. Darts are available along with many different themed nights such as trivia, brewers nights, and live entertainment. Finding a good seat on busy nights can be tough but shouldnt be a problem if you arrive before 9:30. They provide a good cheese and meat sampler to compliment your beer choice, while it may be a little expensive it is worth it in my opinion. Overall the prices are about on par with bars of this sort. The staff attempt to be very helpful but can sometimes be a little slow due to the amount of people. This is my favorite bar in dallas since the ufo club(drink 200 beers get plate on the wall with name on it) gives me something to aim for.

Moved down here a while ago for school and had heard this place from over 30 min away. The other day I had a friend who needed to make a trip down to the area so I rode along. Started having a great time as soon as we walked in. Over a hundred taps followed by over a hundred bottles. Not like most tap bars in that every brew was served in the glass that best influenced the full flavor of the beer not just pints and mugs. Prices were relatively cheap and had sports going with a live band that started shortly before we left. Overall a great experience and look forward to going there agian.

Was able to make a quick stop on the way from a meeting to the airport.
I've been to Flying Saucer's in Nashville, Memphis, and Little Rock and have found them to be a solid choice when seeking out good beer in less-than-desirable beer areas.
I began at a table near the bar and eventually moved to one of the comfy couches in the back when Texas' outdated indoor smoking policy prevented me from enjoying my beers.
I began with the Live Oak hefe which I've been wanting to try for the longest time and was not let down. From there, I went with the 5 beer sampler - Live Oak pils, 512 two, Real Ale full moon rye PA, Franconia dunkel, 512 pecan cask. Getting all these quality TX beers on tap at a single stop speaks volumes about the focus on good beer at FS. In fact no crap on tap or in bottles as far as I'm concerned. If a good beer is available in the area, the can or will have it.
