ROSWELL, N.M.- The world’s famous UFO McDonald’s in Roswell has finally re-opened after shutting down for improvements.

“We’ve been closed for over two months,” said UFO McDonald’s owner, Nick Snowberger. “ It’s been a significant impact to the customers that come to this restaurant.”


Snowberger said after 18 years, it was time for a major upgrade to the popular restaurant.

“The UFO McDonald’s is the third most-unique McDonald’s in the world,” he said. “We’ve change nothing about that, but everything about everything else.”

Construction crews worked around the clock to give the place a facelift, as they added the last few final touches before re-opening Friday afternoon.

“The interior, the exterior—we’ve added and updated and given an unbelievable new look to the restaurant inside and out that was needed.

Some of those upgrades include: A new drive-thru, digital menu boards, upgrades to the play land,  and video games to name a few.

Snowberger said he’s grateful for the community’s patience and continuous support throughout this endeavor.

“My father built this restaurant, and he passed it to me in 2016,” he said “ I'm proud to continue the legacy he has created in honoring the culture and the community of Roswell.”
