I go here maybe once a week. Pretty standard Flying Saucer atmosphere. I like it a bit more than a couple of the other ones I've been to because it's a bit more quiet.
Selection is great, although not quite as good as some of the other locations. But it's not like all you have to choose between is BMC.
I try to avoid going on the busy nights (Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday) and instead go earlier in the day before it gets too busy to find a table. My two favorite days are probably Sunday ($2.75 Texas pints) and Monday ($2.75 pints for anything on draught with a couple of exceptions).
The food is fairly average pub food for the most part. The one thing that I really do like to snack on there is the two giant pretzels, which I am obsessed with. The food can also be good or bad, depending on when you go there.
Service is also pretty average for a pub. However, a few of the waitresses are really cool. If you make friends with them, you will generally get better service, and they will come by and hang out if it's not to busy.
Overall, I would recommend going here. Good atmosphere and selection, good service if you get the right waitress, and standard pub grub.
