Description: 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!

This was the only steakhouse that we ate at during our vacation in NM and AZ. Sometimes a steak, baked potato, and salad really hits the spot. Badlands cooked our steaks perfectly! It was a delicious meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our steak, potato, salad, and drinks there. The western decor is just right for a steak house in Gallup. Service was good even though the staff was being kept busy by a large group in the function room at the back of the place. We hope to get back to Badlands on our next trip to the area.

We stopped here because we were looking for steaks and the ratings were good; we were not disappointed. Steaks were very good, generously sized, and properly cooked. Lots of fried onions on top was a nice touch. The place was a bit dark inside because of the decor. Service was good but not always attentive: they missed out on the chance to sell more drinks. Overall a good find on our way through town.

Had a group of 10. Service was prompt, friendly and good. Lots of different food items were ordered, including appetizers and desserts. Everyone was pleased with their choices. Pomegrante margarita was especially good! Décor was western themed.

While traveling through New Mexico I promised my friend a steak dinner. The desk clerk at the hotel suggested Badlands Grill so off we went. The atmosphere was interesting with a western flair. My friend said the steak was juicy and tender, the most tender she ever had. My dish was an imaginative fried avocado stuffed with shrimp, lobster and crab. So delicious! For desert we had the chocolate mousse, Fabulous! Our server Chelsea was friendly and efficient. The chef, JR came out to see how our food was. He was very personable and at my query explained how the avocado dish came about. It was all a very pleasant evening. I will definitely go back there again and I'm telling all my friends about it as well.
