Known more for its extensive beer menu than its basic bar grub menu, Flying Saucer has more than a dozen locations, and this one makes good use of an old Colter's Texas BBQ joint. The bar has more than 200 beers to choose from, with a whopping 90-plus beers on draft. While it can be tough to select from the extensive menu, the nubile bar maids dressed in plaid schoolgirl skirts tend to be more than happy to help you whittle down your selection. Because it's located in Addison, Flying Saucer allows smoking indoors, which makes it feel more pub-like than other similar watering holes in Dallas. After 8:30 p.m. the establishment starts checking photo IDs and only admits folks 21 and up. Regulars, known as "beerknurds," can join the "U.F.O. Club," which keeps track of the beers they've tried. Once someone tries all 200 they are eligible for the bar's "Ring of Honor."
