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!

Dusty's is a Highlands must see. It has an eclectic mix of gourmet, pre-prepared and fresh baked pies, cakes, breads and various other confections most of which are made in house. There is a butcher and it a great place to pick up steaks or homemade hotdogs. Everyone that visits me in Highlands always gets a tour of Dusty's.

The restaurant is in the back of the store and serves delicious sandwiches and salads. We not only enjoyed our lunch, but loved the store. It had a great selection of goods considering its size. There were Sarabeth's preserves and other surprising brands. While we waiting to pay, a local farmer was delivering jars of honey straight from the hive.... More

Just phoned in my order for Dusty's blueberry pie. I try to stay away from pie, but when I'm in Highlands, I can't stay away from their blueberry, peach, or tomato pies. A VERY special treat. Also, ask in meat dept. for their delicious and very reasonably priced roast beef sliced for sandwiches. I also enjoy their freezer cabinet, especially... More

Based on a Tripadvisor review we ate lunch at the deli in the back of this meat market. The Reuben was probably the best we'd ever had. The ladies were extremely friendly. We bought cookies to go which were very good. We will definitely eat here again

You have to stop here and have a sandwich! Until you do, you haven't really tasted a sandwich!!! And a piece of cake, or pie or whatever goodies they've baked up that day! 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. Kitty! The... 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.
