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.

A delightful family evening meal. The chicken wings are delicious as were the fall off the bone rack of ribs. We also would highlight the steak sandwich. A little in the pricy side but probably worth it. Good atmosphere. Nice polite staff. Ample parking. Easy...More

The filet was good. Not great. About what you’d expect from Lone Star or any other steak chain, but you’ll pay about twice the price. I had the veggie medley instead of potato. It was quite good. I was especially disappointed that management chose to...More

The food was good but the drinks were not. The wine based margaritas and vodka lemonade left a lot to be desired.

We definitely recommend this restaurant. We had dinner there during a road trip. Authentic place with very decent quality food (we enjoyed our steaks). Amanda, our waitress, was very friendly and attentive.

I took my girlfriend and her daughter out for my girlfriend's bday. The place was very nice. Big menu to choose from. The waitress was very friendly. She didn't forget about us. If you want a nice, quiet relaxing outing. Try this place.

Don’t come here if you want a drink! They make their cocktails with wine! They don’t serve liquor. Our waitress was very nice and patient then she snatched my salad away while I was distracted. The atmosphere is rustic and nice. They have both tables...More

While I'm not sure if it is the ONLY steakhouse in town, it is certainly worth visiting. On a recent and rare visit to Gallup, I took clients and their wives to dinner here. The wait staff could not have been more attentive and they...More

When we arrived in the evening, the downtown was closed off for an event. The only place on our side was Badlands Grill. First of all, we found a very reasonably priced Chilean savignon blanc that was delicious. The menu offers three appetizers for $10...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!
