The food was always OK here but it has gone downhill. Over cooked frozen food, bad or no service. I am trying to find something good to say but can't find anything. Any place in town would be a better choice.

After 15 mins, asked for a waitress, 10 mins later, had to ask for the 2 waters and 2 sprite that we ordered. Chicken strips was great and the ranch dressing was yummy. Buffalo Hamburger was dry and not pleasing. Fries were decent. We had to even get up and ask for check. I appreciate them working on Christmas but... More

This was a nice place to eat but is under new name and not the same. It is now called ET Encounter Diner. Not so great.

We stopped at this diner our first night in Sedona after a long day of travel. We weren't sure what to expect when we walked into the "alien" motif but we were tired, it was dark & we were hungry. We were surprised. The service was a bit slow at first but once the waitress took our orders our food... More

Your first Sedona visit isn't complete without a visit to Red Planet Diner (also called ET Encounter). The kitschy sci-fi decor is fun and plays into Sedona's rep as a UFO hot spot. Food and service are good.

It seemed like the place needed some sprucing up. The place had vey few diners. The art was interesting especially the ceiling.

I visited the Red Planet Diner 9 years ago and looked forward to returning. The Diner was run down and not very special. Our waitress was attentive and gave excellent service.

Had to drop in and get whatever from the menu.. got the fajitas plate which was very good and plenty enough for two to share ! Staff was friendly, no one was in there except me and my bf, but didnt bother us. Alien pictures and sculptures all around, so overall fun experience :)

Thank ilmur
