Here on business, had my team out for dinner. Very cool place and staff is great. Food, well, priced right but not great. Atmosphere and staff make it 4 stars. Food drops it down but again priced well for downtown Houston.

The staff here made us feel at home, even though we were from out of town. Had very decent pizzas and some good beer. Great, friendly atmosphere and low key.

This Flying Saucer has a lively atmosphere, tasty food, and cheerful, attentive staff. They treat you very well here. Our group met there for an after-meeting meal & drinks and our 12 were treated above the crowd, like each person was special. Orders were taken,...More
