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!

Decent local steakhouse. I like the salmon and was not impressed with the shrimp. Good soups and beer selection.

Went to eat dinner. Was impressed with the reviews. Wow $18.00 for a hamburger and $12.00 for salad. No thanks. Service was slow and prices too high for us. Wish I’d have looked at the menu before we went. Left and ate at Cracker Barrel.

We found this restaurant on trip advisor as we were traveling. We had a great experience. I have some food allergies and they accommodated me with making a fresh Burger Patty. My husband had the sirloin and daughter had the chicken strips. All very good.
