Great place for a pup

Excellent food --- great craft beers from all over the world. Nice big tables with benches outside, friendly place for our large puppy (75 pounds). Service was slow, but the servers were nice. Good time all around.

Had the burger and it was outstanding to say the least. The drys were some of the best I have ever consumed and we're hot and crispy. Look out burger fans this is the place and #1 in my book.

We were passing by Columbia on January 2016 and decided to have lunch at the Flying Saucer because we had our dog with us and they have a big covered terrace were we could eat with her. Despite of the cold we had to share the terrace with some smokers but it is so big that we were able to... More

We decided to stop here on our way through Colombia because well...Flying Saucer...it sounded interesting. upon arriving, the first thing the that strikes you are the hundreds of plates on the ceiling...while it took a bit longer than usual to get food...it did not matter as we were all to busy reading the plates. The pizza wasn't anything special. But... More

The Flying Saucer has an awesome selection of draft beers. They also have good daily beer and drink specials. Limited menu of food items however.

Went there for lunch on a Sunday. The rockets tots were excellent. Just enjoy them and don't think about the caloric total. White chili was also good. The burger was huge. Also had the Space club sandwich and it was quite tasty. Amazing selection of beers although we did not have any. Would love to go back and try some.... More

There is a seemingly endless selection of beer on tap to accompany the interestingly delicious menu choices. Our server had extensive knowldge of every beer selection even adding her personal recommendation to compliment menu items. My husband and I ordered the queso, salsa and chips and the 12" pizza made "our way". Both were beyond what I would consider bar... More
