“Yummy fast Lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Had a great lunch of Potato Skins and a side salad. Very reasonable price for lots of fresh vegies. Peppers, fresh mushrooms, cabbage, carrots and crisp lettuce. The potato skins were large...and gooey with bubbling cheese and bacon. Came quickly even on a busy Saturday lunch time.

“This is the place to reward your kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2010

I won't tell you the story behind Space Alien's as they have it on the back of their menu. Suffice it to say the founders hit the bulls eye. Excellent food.

I usually get the slow cooked ribs or a personal pizza. My kids love the pizza and usually eat every bite.

Space Aliens is a sensory overload. Almost everywhere you look there is something going on from Science Fiction Movie Memorabilia to paintings.

And the part the kids will love (and many adults) is the game room. You can earn tickets you can turn into prizes. However, you can find yourself easily spending more money in the game room than you did for food. And here is the drawback MOST of the prizes you can win are really really cheap and would not even be quality enough to sell at the dollar store. Space Aliens really needs to ramp up the quality of the lower end prizes that you can win. Most of the things will break on your child in short time. My kids used to want to go there all the time. However, after repeated instance of the prizes being of cheap quality beyond compare they have actually told me they don't want to go there anymore because everything breaks.

This place is not a cheap meal, but it is a family event.

They also have a great bar with excellent specials and it is also a good place to go with your friends.

Be advised this place gets very very busy (a sure sign of good food)
