We definitely recommend this restaurant. We had dinner there during a road trip. Authentic place with very decent quality food (we enjoyed our steaks). Amanda, our waitress, was very friendly and attentive.

I took my girlfriend and her daughter out for my girlfriend's bday. The place was very nice. Big menu to choose from. The waitress was very friendly. She didn't forget about us. If you want a nice, quiet relaxing outing. Try this place.

Don’t come here if you want a drink! They make their cocktails with wine! They don’t serve liquor. Our waitress was very nice and patient then she snatched my salad away while I was distracted. The atmosphere is rustic and nice. They have both tables...More

While I'm not sure if it is the ONLY steakhouse in town, it is certainly worth visiting. On a recent and rare visit to Gallup, I took clients and their wives to dinner here. The wait staff could not have been more attentive and they...More

When we arrived in the evening, the downtown was closed off for an event. The only place on our side was Badlands Grill. First of all, we found a very reasonably priced Chilean savignon blanc that was delicious. The menu offers three appetizers for $10...More

What a great surprise! A wine list that you would never expect outside of a big city, a totally fresh salad, fresh salmon, and cheery Chelsea as our waitress. Totally would go back again, great dinner, great service, reasonable prices.

The food and service at this establishment are excellent. Rachel was an outstanding server. She was professional, but very friendly and attentive. The Badlands sirloin steak was so juicy and well seasoned that using steak sauce would be insulting the chef. It was a rare...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!
