This Remote Restaurant In Nevada Will Take You A Million Miles Away From Everything
In Nevada, there’s a restaurant so remote it’s out of this world; and it’s so out of the world, it attracts visitors from around the world.
The family-owned Little A’Le’Inn is a remote restaurant, bar and motel located in the small town of Rachel, Nevada. If you’ve heard of Rachel, it’s likely due to its proximity to the Area 51, a top secret military installation where the government is experimenting on aliens (according to conspiracy theorists). As the closest habitation to the military base, Rachel has become a popular tourist destination for alien enthusiasts.
A former mining town, Rachel is located about 115 miles northwest of Las Vegas and about 27 miles north of Area 51. The Little A'Le'Inn is the only operating business in this tiny town of less than 100 people (number of aliens unknown).
Your journey to Rachel will lead you along the Extraterrestrial Highway (Nevada 375), a sleepy, 98-mile stretch of road between Warm Springs and Crystal Springs.
Nevada designated State Route 375 as the Extraterrestrial Highway in 1996. Rachel is located just off the highway.
Once you reach Rachel and pull off the highway, you will come upon the Little A'Le'Inn. Honestly, you can't miss it. It's the only place in town with a truck towing a UFO out front.
The remote restaurant was opened by husband and wife Joe and Pat Travis in 1989. Previously known as the Rachel Bar and Grill, it was reborn as the Little A'Le'Inn in 1990.
Joe has since passed away and Pat continues to run the business with her daughter Connie. Over the years they have added all sorts of alien-themed touches.
Murals adorn the outside of the building.
The restaurant playfully welcomes earthlings to come in and eat.
On the inside, the restaurant is decorated with alien kitsch. In addition to plenty of seating, there's a pool table and a video game.
Visitors will also find a gift shop filled with fun alien souvenirs.
The bar is fully stocked to help you put the "ale" in "al'e'inn."
In addition to the dining room, there's also plenty of outdoor seating.
:So what does one order at an alien-themed restaurant? The Alien Burger, of course. It is absolutely delicious and no aliens are harmed in the making of this burger.
There are plenty of other items on the Littlee A'Le'Inn menu too. Between the food, the drinks and a new alien souvenir or two, your experience at this remote restaurant will be one you won't soon forget. Better yet, the restaurant is part of a motel. If you don't feel like driving home, you can always stay for the night.
