Great place to visit just for fun! The kids will love it as well. Staff is fun and always ready to help. Price for jerky is a little high but worth it!

I had seen advertising here and there for Alien Fresh Jerky. I never knew what it was. I was driving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and made a quick rest stop in Baker, Ca and there was the Alien Fresh Jerky Store. I still had no idea what it was but there were "aliens" and a spaceship outside. Unfortunately,... More

We almost always stop here on the way down to California. The jerky and dried fruits are amazing. Hopefully, they will have gator jerky again some day when I am passing through. They also have a nice selection of drinks, and novelty items. Also noticed on my last trip a great collection of steam punk style items. If where we... More

We saw the Aliens from the Sky and decided to stop. There is an alien car, alien map, and cute things to see outside and inside the shop. They have a wide variety of products and many many different types of jerky. We liked the Alien Fresh Jerky - Pepper Teriyaki Beef Jerky - we purchased. Its a short visit,... More

It is not a Tourist trap, who on Earth goes to Baker California as a tourist? Us regular Vegas visitors make it a stop for its delicious jerky and to stretch our legs.Also, It is not expensive, I just bought a bag of Chefs cut at the store for 9 bucks and it had less jerky than Alien's. Stingy people... More

Very cool, great beef jerky, and very hot foods and peanuts, a few picture opportunities, a must stop.

When on the 15 either to or from Las Vegas, Baker is not only the halfway point, but it is also Out of the World in the form of Alien Fresh Jerky. Over the years AFJ has grown from a curiosity to a full-blown destination! There is Jerky, true - but if one needs a replacement ID for Area 51... More

Okay, it's a tourist trap but Alien Fresh Jerky is just the kind of tourist trap that I like! There are signs everywhere so you won't miss the exit. Plus, it's a nice little break on the long drive between Las Vegas and CA. It's got just about everything you could ask for, alien related. There are: cups, shot glasses,... More

I had seen the billboards advertising this place along I-15 between Barstow and Las Vegas, so I decided to visit the last time I was in Baker. What I found was a small store with an "aliens have visited us" theme that sells a wide variety of jerky and dried fruits (it IS in the desert after all). Although it's... More
