My Darlin and I read the good reviews so we gave it a try. What a disappointment. We both had salads which were basic, and the bread was OK. My Darlin had the filet mignon dinner and while good, she said he's had better at...More

Lived up to the reviews on trip advisor. Steak was great with baked potatoes. Green chili soup was perfection without being too spicy. Service was fine. It seemed like locals place!

A classic steak place with good choices for those who prefer something other than beef. Wine and beer service only but a reasonable selection of each. A nice dinner.

If you’re just passing through, or visiting I suppose, and looking for a good dinner, this seems to be the place in town. I’d say it’s a little pricey, but it’s worth it. The steaks were great, beers cold and the service was very good....More

While traveling through Gallup we looked for a "better" place to have dinner and ended up here. It is a western motif and very relaxed and cozy. They have quite an extensive wine list with by the glass and bottle. We both ordered a sirloin...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!
