just another "steak house" that hasn't gotten the message yet. As with most restaurants in Gallup this is just not anything special.

The food was horrible as far as pricing and quality. Heating up food for that price. Would not recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I visited this restaurant because the motel recommended it. He got a steak and liked it. I ordered a large salad topped with steak. The lettuce on my salad was of poor quality, ends and scrap pieces. The steak on the salad...More

The outside of the building has huge signage advertising " 40 day dry-aged steaks". This rarity drew us in. The menu boasts wet-aged steaks. There were no dry-aged steaks available. We ordered the regular filet mignons--mine a 6 ounce and his an 8 ounce, both...More

There are three things I really enjoyed about Badlands: their extensive and diverse menu; their super-friendly wait-staff; and their really outstanding steaks. The night we visited we weren’t all that hungry. After we saw the menu and waded into dinner with cheese sticks appetizers, we...More

The Badlands was quiet on the night we went there and that was no surprise. While the steaks were good, they were not great and certainly not worth what they cost. The salads had been premade and sat on the glass plate, limp, bitter and...More

We debated on whether to go here or Jerrys and we ended up at Badlands. The restaurant is dark but casual. The food was significantly overpriced (~$30-$35 per plate) for the quality. The average wine was also overpriced at $12 per glass. Service was good...More

Small restaurant but packed with locals because of the great wet-aged beef and well prepared dishes. Extensive wine list. Our steaks were perfectly done and tender. The berry and vanilla creme tart for dessert surprisingly excellent.

Please compare my review to the others - it could be I caught them on an "off night". I ordered the fried shrimp - menu stated "enormous"; actually just average size. The shrimp and salad and mashed potatoes were good but nothing special. The food...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!
