The atmosphere is rustic western themed and the tables were not too close together. We sat in a booth and the closest tables were far enough away to enjoy the company of our own family. There is a pellet stove located in the center of...More

Went with a group of 6 for barbq and was disappointed. The brisket had lots of grizzle. Also the service was VERY slow. And the food was pricey. Ate at some other great places while there but this wasn't one of them.

Definitely not the best filet mignon I have had and priced in the mid thirties. My husband had the beef brisket - lesser in price but certainly nothing special. Perhaps we chose incorrectly. Our waitress was lovely, however, and the wine selection is quite good.

This was another restaurant we heard about by asking the receptionist at our hotel ( Hampton Inn ). It had a great Western ambience and the staff were most helpful. We certainly enjoyed our meal which was very good value for money.

This place by far has some of the best steak that my wife and I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection. As good as the food was, it was only exceeded by the professional and friendly service of Johanna. What a great place...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!
