The food here is amazing, and the number of different beers that they have on tap is mind blowing. They have everything from ciders to dark stout beer, local, domestic, and foreign beers. The flying Saucer also has a beeknurd club with a UFo membership. The membership is $18, but you get a beerknurd T-shirt and several other benefits:After 50... More

Nice place to stop with your dog for a brake during shopping. Good beer selection, not my favorite place for real "dinner" but great for "just relaxing" with a snack

You can truly enjoy beers from all over the world here and have some great eats, try the Saucer Brotzel, it's to die for! With specials every day , you can spend next to nothing on some days and make memories indoors and out.

Lots of beers on offer. Scantily clad waitresses who don't make eye contact with the women at the table, but flirt with the boys. Decent sausages. Good atmosphere. Surly guy on the door for IDs making sure everyone knows he's boss, and nitpicking. Had a couple of good nights here. If you're local, you get your own plate on the... More

Love to but the new glasses on Wednesday. Fun atmosphere just loud at times. Some of the girls really know their beer but others could use a little more help. It's nice to be able to sample the beer when you are not sure.

I'm not a beer drinker, but they have just about any kind of beer you could ever want. I had an ale that was pretty good and the grilled chicken sandwich was delicious. It was a bit crowded and loud, but I enjoyed the atmosphere and the company.

Went to the Saucer with my daughter and son-in-law...he is trying for his "plate". Monday is pint night..."eligible" beers are marked accordingly. My son-in-law ordered a beer that was marked for the pint special. The waitress came back and said it was not on the pint list . My son-in-law showed her the menu showing it was marked for the...

This was my first stop after arriving in San Antonio. Met friends and family there. Had the sampler. It was really a fun place. Ate chips and salsa on the patio and tried the different beers. They have so many to choose from. Very hip place. If you like microbrews you will love it. If you like Miller Lite then... More

If you are one that enjoys tasting different types of beers from all over the world this is your place. They also have decent pub fare, really can't go wrong.
