When I first moved to San Antonio I was excited to find out that I was living only a few blocks from the Flying Saucer. I had been to the one in Austin and enjoyed it so I was looking forward to living close to another one. Sadly this saucer is not like the one in Austin. There have been a few times that I'm pretty sure they were selling beers using dirty lines. I refuse to drink any beer there unless it was tapped that day, because of that. They very rarely tap "exciting" beers like the other saucers in the state. The feel of the establishment is that of a hipster bar. I have no problem with trendy places, but it is more like a college bar then a beer bar. I understand that I have the ultimate choice whether or not to go, and I choose to not go there. It's disappointing that this location is not as good as the other locations within the state. I've emailed them before, complaining about their dirty line and other various objections, but they just send me excuses and refuse to fix the problems. I'm not the only person that has experienced these problems with this bar before. There food is good though, but that is not enough to make me go there. If I were asked by someone visiting the city, where to go for a good beer, I would not recommend this place.

I would go weekly and enjoyed myself every time. The selection is better than none. The food is great. The staff is friendly and always have great advise. A few waitresses that knew my preferences and always had a taster waiting for me. And more often than not it was a great choice. Parking can be bad, but if is not impossible to deal with. Of all the Saucers I have been to this is my favorite.
