Red Planet Cafe: Great chili cheese fries
This is definitely a quirky place. There is a dining area with tables and television on the wall and small bar. There is also a separate diner style eating area with a horseshoe shape counter and stools with both seating along the windows. On the counter top there are laminated news articles about UFO sighting. Interesting stuff to read while waiting for your food.
After a long day of hiking, I treat myself to the chili cheese fries. Really good comfort food!

The Red Planet Cafe: Out of this world!
We ate here the first night since it looked really fun. We all got a kick out of the décor because it was out of this world. The red glow might seem bothersome to some, but it didn’t bother us. The food was not bad and my boys got a huge kick out of the alien theme. A really neat place to bring the kids.

Red Planet Diner
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 person 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.
