RACHEL, NEVADA – JULY 22: An alien-like statue displays a sign welcoming guests to the Little A’le’ Inn restaurant and gift shop on July 22, 2019 in Rachel, Nevada. A Facebook event entitled, “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” which the author stated was meant as a joke, calls for people to storm the highly classified U.S. Air Force facility near Rachel on September 20, 2019, to address a conspiracy theory that the U.S. government is conducting tests with space aliens.

Perhaps humans have more in common with aliens than we thought. Arby’s has offered to feed everyone planning to attend the ‘Storm Area 51’ event posted on Facebook.

Nearly two million people RSVP’d to raid. And Arby’s wants to treat attendees to a tasty meal. The sandwich joint via Twitter they will greet human and aliens alike at Area 51.

Arby’s is bringing a secret menu to those who want to “see them, aliens.”

In a press release, Jim Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer of Arby’s, said Arby’s should be accessible to anyone and everyone.

“We can’t confirm if there are aliens at Area 51. But, if they do show up, they deserve the best meats on Earth,” said Taylor. “If not, Arby’s will still be there serving the planet’s best meats to everyone else attending this historic event.”

It’s safe to believe the chain will create a limited beef sandwich that will satisfy the greater good. Maybe Arby’s wants to beat all other foods to the punch. The first thing aliens will ever have the pleasure of tasting is a beef and cheddar sammie.


Area 51 is a secret U.S. Air Force Military site located in rural Nevada. Conspiracy theorists have declared the land a place for extraterrestrial life.

U.S. Air Force spokesperson Laura McAndrews said officials were aware of the event and advised participants to not attempt to raid the government site.

McAndrews told the Washington Post, Area 51  “is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces.”

“The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

A Time’s article suggests the creator of the event, Matty Roberts, believes an electronic music festival could take place instead of a raid.

There’s no telling what Arby’s is hiding up their sleeve. Although, there’s a good chance it could be out of this world.
