Good selection of steaks. Our steaks were cooked just right, very tender and tasty. The side dishes were fresh and very tasty. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant was very crowded, but this did not impact our service, wait time or meal. The owner...More

We picked this because it was the closet to the hotel and after reading a few reviews. The beer was good and cold, that was the best part after 13hrs on the road. I thought prices were a little high. I had a burger that...More

So my husband an I are going cross country "whim" style (whatever strikes out fancy but relying heavily on TripAdvisor). We get to Gallup and it's not a fantastic place, but we found Badlands to eat a good steak at and we were extremely happy...More

Every waitress who passed our table stopped to fill water, pick up dirty plates! Even the hostess helped out. Food was good and service was great!

The prices were higher for the steaks than we were interested in paying so ordered hamburgers which were wonderful. I'm sure the steaks are also good but having been on the road for awhile, prices were too expensive. Staff was very pleasant. Good casual restaurant...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!
