Alamo, Nevada

Little A'Le'Inn

An eatery for UFO seekers on the Extraterrestrial Highway. 

For anyone looking to head into the desert and court a close encounter of the third kind, the Little A’Le’Inn provides food, lodging, and endless information for UFO seekers along The Extraterrestrial Highway (Nevada State Route 375).

In operation for over 20 years, this lone restaurant on the way to Area 51 and other Nevada locations known to attract E.T’s embraces the area’s lore to the extreme and has all of the alien paraphernalia one could hope for. Stop by for a meal or a souvenir and the friendly staff will also fill you in on the best spots for watching the skies! 

Know Before You Go

On April 18, 1996, 20th Century Fox dedicated a time capsule here, as a beacon for visitors of distant stars, the state of Nevada, and the "extraterrestrial highway." It will be opened in 2050 A.D. By which time interplanetary travelers shall be regular guests of our planet Earh.
