We were not even that hungry, but what a place. We wished we were. Both the food and service were excellent. Would go there again in a minute.

Felicia was our server and was also training a new employee. She, and the food, were wonderful. I had a dry aged ribeye and my wife had the special elk burger. Both were just perfect.

This is a real old fashioned steak house, aged meat, excellent service, western style ambiance. We were there on a Saturday night, and they had live music (a folk-singer), and the food couldn't have been better. Nothing fancy, just the best meat you can imagine...More

Badlands Grill is located along old Route 66 on the western side of town. You'd generally call this a steakhouse, but the menu includes such delicacies as bison and elk. My companion hadn't had elk before, so it was an easy decision to visit this...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!
