Something like the third FS I've visited across this great land. Probably the least friendly and inviting of all of 'em, but still a good place to get above-average beer in a somewhat difficult city to get good beer. Addison is a bit of a drive and northwest of Dallas proper. Nearly all of the FS's have visually appealing waitresses so it was a first that this place frankly did not. Not that that's the most important thing to most patrons, but given the way they dress them up in all locations, ie plaid "school girl" skirts and tshirts, and given the proximity to Dallas, you'd expect more. Hard to get used to smoking in bars again, however, thankfully, other than the loser in the goofy cowboy hat and boots sucking on Marlboros with his gal, and drinking Bud (what else?)the annoyance was kept to a minimum. The scene was basically the same as the others too what with the pennies lined along the wall of taps behind the bar and the plates everywhere and leather couches in one corner. This bar seated about 15. Rather quiet night (a Wednesday in February). The chick behind the bar was rather aloof and humorless as was her equally young, muscle bound (and damn proud of it) colleague who came in later. As to the beer, probably the limpest selection of the locations I've visited but that's all relative given the low expectations you have to have in this part of the country. Prices are expensive (ie a bomber of St Bernardus Abt 12 for $16; a bomber of Allagash Dubbel for $14) yet some selections were typical for even my more expensive region of the country, such as a bomber of Avery Reverend for $11, which I enjoyed first. I had to go that way since they were out of both my first and second choices, Tilburg's Dutch Brown and Duvel (how can you run out of Duvel?) respectively. I finished my visit with a Koningshoeven Dubbel Trappist. Overall a decent stop in an area with relatively few decent options. If the staff can shake the 'tudes and smile every now and again, that would be an improvement.

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
