Not only was the food absolutely, amazingly delicious, we were served by the nicest waitress, Chelsea. She was just the right amount of attentiveness without being in your face. It's a pity we were just in the States on holidays because I would love to...More

The lobster was great! Not fishy or rubbery at all like a lot of fish in Gallup. Our steaks were also really good. Can't decide if I like the creme brûlée or bananas foster better.

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!
