About
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!

Lucked into this gem west of Gallup. Service was excellent, steaks were great, and atmosphere was low key and friendly. Highly recommended.

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.
