About an hour north of Las Vegas along US 95. Food, clothes, gas etc. Fun place. Includes a diner and I hear a brothel but not verified :-) Focused on world Famous Area 51.

You can get snacks, refreshments and a break from your long drive (there's even the adjoining Cathouse Brothel that will take care of your pet's needs).

This is a nice place! Plenty of room to park the Big Rig for a break or overnight. It was peaceful. The Restroom was clean too! I went into the Diner and had the Chicken Fried Steak breakfast. It may not have been “Texas Size”...More

We knew this was one of the last places to stop for fuel on our way to Death Valley, plus with a name like "Area 51 Alien Center" how could we not check it out. There is a mish-mosh of variety here, from the fuel,...More

The lower diesel fuel prices lured me into the alien center. We decided to go in and had a good time walking around the store looking at tee shirts. So we decided to eat lunch. We were surprised by the tasty cheeseburgers and fries. The...More

If you’re on the road and need to stop or feel like visiting a bit of an off the wall rest station then this is a good one with a shop, diner and a brothel you can take a ‘tour’ of. It’s all a bit...More

It is a tiny diner tucked behind a convenience store at a gas station, but the food was surprisingly good. I had fish and chips and my wife had a cheeseburger that included potato chips and they were both very good.
