Visited on a hot August night 2011. Pretty packed considering that college is out of session but we were able to find a table outside. Really like the location in the Triangle right along a nice pedestrian mall/street. This is the third Flying Saucer I've been to and like the others the selection here was great with several local beers that you can't find much outside of the Austin area. I like that they allow dogs at the outdoor seating area and people who had them exercised good judgement as they were all well behaved and friendly canines. Server was good and attentive and she somehow made a bullseye guess of my all-time favorite beer in making a recomendation - amazing! Unfortunately, this Flying Saucer also had the dreaded quarterly beer menu which leads to totally unnecesary back and forth negotiation between drinker and server regarding what's truly available versus what was available two or three months ago when somebody put together the list. (964 characters)

Located in the Triangle shopping center, this is pretty much your typical Saucer. Except for the awesome patio outside with wood benches, and the inside has a bit more wood accents than the Houston locations. Still same old penny lined tap wall.

Service..pretty much the same. It entirely depends on what time you come and who you get. Early weekday, wide open and no problems. Food is exactly the same as almost every other location I have been to, and frankly bad. Which is par for the coarse.

Good selection of beers. Tons of Texas options, as well as the usual mix of good national brands and imports. I still love seeing Firestone Walker on tap. I guess since it has not hit Houston, it is still a new sight for me. Good beer, cool patio area, that is about it. (769 characters)
