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.

From beers and wine to a meat shop and bakery in the back, this little grocery will have almost anything you are looking for. All the meat is cut to order. I purchased two 10oz., 2 inch thick fillet's for me and my... More

Do not miss this market while you are in Highlands. The meat counter has the best steaks in town. The cinnamon rolls and biscuits are to die for. Great for stocking the pantry on vacation.

To be such a small market, Dusty's had everything we were looking for....and then some! The bakery features fresh baked goods that are amazing - get the raspberry shortbread cookies! Also, they sell Bobby Lee's Best Ever Cheddar Cheese Dip which rocked my tastebuds off!

This little market has a bakery, a meat counter with a butcher (!), and almost any grocery item you might need. They have farm fresh eggs delivered regularly from Buttermilk Farm. They have an excellent selection of wines. They also have a wonderful selection of home-made frozen appetizers, main dishes and desserts for last minute company or special occasions!

All the beef is prime; the caramel cakes are the best in the world - be sure to order yours in advance

My husband and I, along with another couple, had lunch today at Dusty's after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. The young lady who took our order was extremely helpful and recommended that we order one of the wraps since we wanted something to split. Not only was that great advice, but the two wraps that she identified... More

Dusty's is famous for their hand cut meats. But, don't stop there. For a small store, it's loaded with great one of a kind items which will be sure to please. Last year they added an in house bakery and sandwich shop. A great wine selection awaits. Enjoy!

Not sure this review goes’ here but I have no idea where else to give this place the props it deserves. We went here because someone on Tripadviser mentioned that they have meat cut to order. First let me tell you I am a beef snob. Dry aged Prime bone aged rib steaks 2” thick are my vice. But almost... More

We have always gone here and keep on going. We stopped in and got their cinnamon rolls and biscuits. We also got a cheese dip for our wine and crackers which we got here. The meats are great. This place has a lot of different things to try so make sure you stop.
