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."

Sure, it's disappointing that a place with a name so associated with aliens and UFOs isn't decked out as such. In fact, the décor is a little confusing at the Saucer, as the walls and ceilings are covered with glass plates. But the place makes up for it with plenty of couches and a cozy room called the "Pub of Love," along with its unmatched selection of beer. On any given night, you've got a choice between 90 to 100 beers on tap and another 90 to 100 in bottles. Want a beer from the Czech Republic? They got it. Japan? Check.
