Good food, good souvenirs, GREAT people. The lady running this is a hoot and had us cracking up. Eat at the bar so you can talk to her. So much fun. Facetimed with my kid and she put on an alien mask and made our day.

Cute place w decent food. Friendly staff. Our only issue was the hubby and I wanted to order pie but our waitress was all by herself and never got around to asking us or even giving us the check. My husband had to go up to the counter when she was there and ask her so we could pay to leave. It was a good time aside from that after the drive from Las Vegas. It's as close to Area 51 as you'll get.

Me & my fiancé stopped here for breakfast / tick off our bucket list whilst on our road trip - Las Vegas to Area 51 and the Extraterrestrial Highway. We got here just as they opened up - Great friendly staff, top food (we did throw them somewhat asking for a sausage sandwich... found out it’s not a typical American meal 😂) it also has loads of alien merchandise and interesting photos. The whole area is very remote, very eerie - there is a genuine feeling of being watched, especially out on the Extraterrestrial Highway... Highlight of our holiday!

We drove the ET Highway starting in Tonopah to Alamo. We knew we would stop in Rachel to check this place out. We walked in and were greeting warmly by the people there. The lady who was running the place was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The food was good and the prices were good. We bought some stuff in the gift shop. If you are driving the ET Highway, you must stop here. It's the only place to eat and there's clean bathrooms.

On our way home from Cedar City (visit to Zion NP), we decided to take the Extraterrestrial Highway thru Nevada and bordering Area 51... Of course, anyone with a little ET interest, HAS to stop at this “LITTLE ALE’INN” place in Rachel. A great selection of all kinds of ET paraphernalia and a great burger with ALIEN sauce. Fun!!
