This is a grocery store/fresh meat market. In the back they will cut you fresh steaks, chicken, veal, whatever. They also have a deli that has the most amazing homemade soups( I recommend the lobster bisque) and sundried tomato bread. Fresh salads and a ton of homemade goodies in the freezer section. Do not miss this place!

And if you're lucky you might get a tomato pie!! But you better show up early for those, nobody makes a tomato pie like Ms... read more

You can get meats cut to whatever size you want. Walk around back to grab lunch or take out. In cold weather you can eat indoors then there is a patio when warm. The food is prepared daily and is very fresh, including the desserts. Been going there for years and never had a bad meal. The employees are as... More

Lots of great stuff in this nifty little store. Meats are great, very well known in these parts for their meat. Bakery stuff is super also, fresh made right there. Plus the usual basics and interesting items as well.

Dustys offers a great affordable Highlands lunch, with the freshest ingredients and a charming eat in space--outdoors in summer and indoors as well for winter. I don't eat sweets but am assured the baked goods are exceptional! Don't miss the beignets on Saturday morning! Never any lines to deal with, and get a end filet steak on the way!

You would never think of going to a Market for delicious home made bread and sandwich makings. We were in Highlands looking for a place for lunch. A girl in town told us if we wanted a good sandwich go to Dusty Rhodes Market. We went in and didn't see anything that looked like a deli wandered around and found... More

My husband and I visited Dusty's for the first time recently and were slightly disappointed. It is a small specialty grocery with little variety and is very over priced. We did purchase some specialty ice cream sandwiches called Nye's Cream sandwiches which were delicious. Good place for a few specialty items but not for regular grocery shopping!! We did not...

Dusty's Superette looks like an old fashioned roadside supermarket outside, and is just as unassuming inside, but what a gem! The lady at August Produce told us they had a great bakery section in the back and boy was she right! They had some of the best sweets and breads! They were making tomato pies while we were there that... More

Our whole family looks forward to the beignets every Saturday morning. They are made to order by a friendly and sociable group of ladies. Dustys is the perfect place to buy all the items you need to host a party. Think of it as a upscale Trader Joe's.
