Just Ok

Food
 
American fare here, your typical burgers, chicken, steak etc. Let's face it, you don't eat here for the food (it's just ok) you're here for the atmosphere - which is awesome. View the Sci-Fi Dine In's Lunch/Dinner Menu and Dessert Menu.

Atmosphere
 
For those of us who remember going to drive-in movies, this will bring back memories. You sit in car-shaped tables, with everyone facing forward so you can see the movie. It's dark, with cheesy monster movies playing on screen. If you're lucky, your server might even be sportin' roller skates! A fun place that you won't soon forget. There is a car table out in front of the restaurant entrance for photo-ops as well.

Review 
We were able to get a walk-up reservation one afternoon and decided to grab a couple Cosmic Concoctions and split an appetizer. After hearing so many glowing reviews of the Space Monkey shake, we knew that was one we had to try. A Marsha's Martian cocktail and an order of Buffalo Potato Skins filled the rest of our order. 

Unfortunately, these "Cosmic Concoctions" tasted more like they came out of your mother's kitchen. While tasty, they were lacking any hint of the specialty liqueurs that is supposed to be included. The Space Monkey is simply a chocolate shake with an essence de banana that would be a great deal for less than $9.50, but for that price it's definitely not out-of-this-universe worthy (nor is it pleasing any monkeys). The Marsha's Martian is an equal let-down in the alcohol department. Get a couple NA kid's vanilla & chocolate shakes and mix them yourself and you'll have this "cocktail" for a significantly better deal. Now don't get us wrong - they are delicious shakes, but not worth the nearly $10 price tag. (And yes, they do come with glow cubes.) 

When you think of a typical order of potato skins, how many skins do you picture? 6? At least 4, right? Well, their Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins arrived with a total of 3 - yes, that's right, 3 potato skins for ten bucks! (Where did the other potato half go?) Who's seen a measly 3 skins on an order before? Once we got past the odd number, the dish was unfortunately boring and bland. The redeeming factor is the tangy dribble of chunky blue cheese dressing that was on top, though it could've used a lot more. On the bright side, the three sticks of celery were nice and fresh!
