Flying Saucer Draught Emporium
The food here is designed to complement the beer. Appetizers include the Beer Cheese Soup, hot tamales, sausage quesadillas, sausage and cheese plates, while sandwiches fill out the menu. One of the rooms contains a large bar and wooden tables and chairs, and the other room has pool tables and a sports-bar atmosphere. The most popular place to eat and drink is on the wrap-around patio at the windows. Cigar smoking is encouraged on the patio, and the restaurant offers a cigar list. The restaurant features live music on weekends and is in the heart of the tourist district, so there are usually plenty of chances for people-watching.
We spent almost our entire time in Memphis at The Flying Saucer. The beer was fantastic, the waitstaff amazing, the food and bands were great. And the best part was the seating at the open windows overlooking the street. Beer and interesting people watching - LOVED it! I'm dying to go back. Just one note, don't order a mixed drink. Stick with the beer.
i salute the theory behind the saucer, and I loved it in Dallas. But while the selection is huge, a true beer lover would immediately notice the lines are not cleaned enough and many of your favorites will come out tasting a little funny. Also, it is downright appalling the memphis locating makes you pay to join their beer club (yeah-that's in addition to the hundreds (thousands?) of beers you will be paying for to try to get the coveted saucer with your name on it. Also, in memphis, they charge a cover on the weekends for their lame bands. (A cover charge at the flying saucer!)
However, they always have a strong stable of beautiful waitresses that usually keep em coming and the food is not bad. Some light dressing options would be nice for salads though. Go for the wait staff, enjoy the food, but buy beer by the bottle, until they learn how to clean their lines. Prost.

Trivia on Tuesday night.
Beers from around the world. True character in downtown Memphis. I don't know if Aquanet still plays there or not, but they used to when I lived there. They will bring down the house!! Beer and rock n roll - what else is there?!
I love this place, when I am in Memphis I make it a point to go here.
I love the roll up window seating right at the street so you can watch and communicate with everyone out and about. It is very close to Beale street and the service is incredible.
If you get the chance to stop here order an Irish car bomb and try the soft pretzels!
I love this place. Great beer....good food. Oh...did I mention great beer? Oh yea...and did I mention nearly a hundred beers on tap along with a beer list just over 200. It's a happy place. I think that 1/3 of the whole 20 something crowd of memphis is here each night.
