Early dinner on a Saturday night, super friendly host seated us right away. Our waiter was great, very knowledgeable and attentive. We had burgers and beers. They have a good beer selection. Bacon Cheeseburgers were big, but a bit dry. We should have asked for...More

The service was good the price was higher than expected I think we were a party of seven may have been to much for the chef.

Very nice, clean restaurant, delicious food, a bit pricey. From outside, it doesn't look like a fine dinning restaurant, however, as soon as you walk in, you change your mind!

We love to come here for date night!! Always delicious steaks and wonderful service and I love that I can get a glass of wine with my meal. Always my number one choice, best steaks and pork chops in Gallup hands down.

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!
