Had a group of 10. Service was prompt, friendly and good. Lots of different food items were ordered, including appetizers and desserts. Everyone was pleased with their choices. Pomegrante margarita was especially good! Décor was western themed.

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!
