As a follow up to the last post, I’m happy to report that the Red Planet Diner still exists in all of its diner glory. Alas, the signage is incomplete. It appears guns are indeed now allowed everywhere in the west.

Other photos from the diner, which, by the way, appears to be changing its name to “ET Encounter Diner.” They should at least put the periods in the initials.

I would suggest stopping by at night. It’s not the same experience  in daylight. 
Also seen in Arizona this trip:

Lastly, reason #83 to love or hate Arizona.
