This is my Go To spot for anniversary and birthday dinners. The food is a bit pricey but for Gallup it's worth it and the service is top notch.

We both had the rib-eye. I had heard people rave about the place and the steaks, which were cooked the way we like-rare, and the rest of the dinner was very good. Salad was fresh and tasty. It's not a place to go if you're...More

Had a steak which was tender, juicy, and flavor full. The salad and sides are typical, but everything was fresh and tasted very good.

When traveling, it is nice to skip the fast food, get out of the car and treat yourself. Badlands Grill is the treat. Quality, fresh, well-prepared food. Check out menu-Worth the price.

Not only was the food absolutely, amazingly delicious, we were served by the nicest waitress, Chelsea. She was just the right amount of attentiveness without being in your face. It's a pity we were just in the States on holidays because I would love to...More

While visiting the Window Rock area, we read some reviews on TripAdvisor and thought we would give Badlands Grill a try. It's well worth the 30-minute drive believe me. I had the 12 oz sirloin and my wife had the 8 oz filet mignon. Both...More

Not a chain, Badlands offers true New Mexico hospitality and taste- for those of you traveling through, it's the place where locals go when they want a meal that's truly a cut above the rest, and relax with friends and neighbors. There's no dress code...no pretentiousness...just beef that's been wet-aged for 21 days, cut in-house and cooked to order...combine these with an ice cold beer or excellent bottle of wine... and you've got the stuff a cattleman's dreams are made of!
