Space Aliens Grill & Bar is a space-themed restaurant chain that opened its doors in 1997. It has since began franchising and expanding locations across North Dakota and Minnesota. Space Aliens is best known for its fire-roasted pizza and barbeque ribs. The founder of Space Aliens, Mort Bank, had previously operated several themed McDonald’s Restaurants, including the McDonalds Rock N Roll Cafe on Main Avenue.

    I don’t remember two locations – I only remember the location on the strip, which I guess is technically “Bismarck-Mandan”. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

      Space Aliens never had a location on The Strip… only its original location (Century & State Street) and a short-lived location downtown off 3rd Street (now Lucky Ducks Deli).
