Dedicated to anything cosmic, this diner's outerspace theme is quite amusing, and the kids will love it. The staff wear t-shirts saying "Welcome Earthlings" and the menu has items with names like: Lunar Linguine, Moon Loaf and Mothership Margarita.

The food is simple diner food, and seems to be very busy with locals and tourists alike. The whole restaurant is decorated with a space-theme in mind, and you will find pictures of UFO's under glass on the counter, plus other recognizable space characters, such as a ceramic Mr. Spock face hung on one wall.

Favorite Dish: We ate here a couple of times, and found the service ranged from good to indifferent. Stick to the simple diner items such as burgers, wings, shakes and fries. I did try the Moon (meat) Loaf, but found it salty and greasy, as it appeared to have been previously made, then sliced and fried on a grill -- an explanation of a brown crust on the underside of each slice. It is, though, worth it just to come once, to take in the cosmic atmosphere.

WARNING The restaurant seems to be affiliated with a timeshare company. If a super friendly guy starts talking to you, especially about your plans in the area, or if you are given a gift certificate for a free picture of yourselves to be put on their restaurant newspaper, run fast and far, it's a ploy to sell you a timeshare for the Los Abrigados Resort. Of course, if you want that sort of thing, enjoy! However, we found it a bit wearing as timeshare salesmen seem to have taken over Sedona.
