This was the some of the best tasting food I have received from a restaurant. Service was also spot on. Really enjoyed it.

We were referred to this restaurant by the staff of the hotel where we stayed. Without an address we would have driven right by the place as it is rather nondescript. The service and food however was a completely different situation. The decor and background...More

Not a lot of fine dining choices in Gallup. Agree with other raters that Badlands in one of the top two. Staff very nice and service speedy.

This is my Go To spot for anniversary and birthday dinners. The food is a bit pricey but for Gallup it's worth it and the service is top notch.

We both had the rib-eye. I had heard people rave about the place and the steaks, which were cooked the way we like-rare, and the rest of the dinner was very good. Salad was fresh and tasty. It's not a place to go if you're...More

Had a steak which was tender, juicy, and flavor full. The salad and sides are typical, but everything was fresh and tasted very good.

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!
