With so many beers to choose from, it's hard not to rate The Addison Saucer really highly. This particular Saucer location has the largest selection of any of the Saucer's stores. In order to be brief (yeah right) here are the good things about this Saucer:

-massive beer selection (hundreds of drafts and even more bottles)
-much better than average bar food
-friendly staff
-roomy and fairly well kept/clean
-several TV's showing sporting events
-live music on the weekends
-2.50 pint night on Mondays for all drafts
-Wednesday "you keep the glass night" (buy a beer at regular price, keep the brewery glass--limit one per customer)
-$2.50 Texas beers on Sunday nights

and the bad things:
-too many beers to rotate stock quickly enough
-staff is under-educated on the beers (not un-educated, just under-educated for a serious beer bar)
-smokey
-bad music IMO (It seems to be b sides of non-top 40 90's alternative bands. How I can sit there for 3 hours and not hear a single song I've heard of is uncanny)


All in all, it's the best bar that I've been to in Dallas, but it could be better. I hear they're remodeling....

Being from Houston I am a little biased. If you have no choice in the matter and you have never been to a flying saucer then this location is worth the visit. However the Houston location is overall much better than the Addison location. Selection was just as good as Houston though. I would say that the food was not impressive but neither was the Houston location. I guess the atmosphere could improve and the quality of food. But just go for the beer. Try a fligh of five five ounce samples of your choice for about 15 bucks
