This place is one ( or more ) visits worth when you are in Houston, you get your plate on the wall when @ +200 different beers, must have seen and tasted.

Of course they were all from one guy but still. It's a neat place to go and my review is based solely on the food. I am not drinking beer right now to stay low carb. I ordered 2 appetizers. Pretzels and Chicken Tenders with Buffalo sauce. Both were average at best. When we left the two I were riding... More

When I travel for business I always try to find a local place with a unique vibe...something I just can't find at home. The Flying saucer is definitely that for Houston. The beer I tried had grapefruit in it ...all I can say is wow. The chicken sandwich was nice and spicy and the fries not too greasy. They do... More

The Flying Saucer in Sugar Land has a large selection of draft beers on tap. Friendly staff and good table service - but be a little understanding when the place is full. Food menu is okay but I don't think the food is anything special. Not a bad place for a beer in Sugar Land and probably the best if... More

Wow. So many beers to try on a rotating beer list. The beverage menu is larger than the food menu...which is still large. Pub food for the most part, but excellently prepared. Very reasonable prices. I had the Pork Bahn Mi sandwich and a local beer that was released an hour earlier for the first time ever. Rumor has it... More

I love the beer selection in this place and the atmosphere, but it took half an hour for our pretzel to finally arrive... only cause we paid and asked for it to go... and when I opened the box, the order was wrong! 🙄🙄

Food menu is one page, beer has two pages lol. Was told can get a taste of any draft beer so picked two and got what was about a half shot glass full. Uh really? Ended up going blind and picking a couple brews. All good. Food was good had the German brats and wife went with the French dip,... More

real shame about the service, however the food drink selection and atmosphere were really good.. the service was marred by a very disinterested server who clearly didn't like her job and her mind was elsewhere, how ever the location is excellent, beers were great, great variety in pizzas you can design.. atmosphere is good, maybe our experience would have been...

Wonderful pub with atmosphere and an excellent selection of brews. Foods ok... but the whole place reeks of grease and you need a shower afterwards. Sit outside in the heat!

One of the most relaxed bars with an outstanding beer menu. If you are looking for a place to try out new beers and relax, this is the place! The food is also just as good with pizzas, nachos, sandwiches, and pretzels.
