I found this restaurant to be just right for what we needed at the time. The kids' mac n cheese was not Kraft and it was DELICIOUS! The bread is mini blueberry muffins with yummy soft butter. Adult food was also good. Very friendly staff, especially that they let my 2-yr-old them cook the food.

This place is absolutely overrated, the food is very mediocre, I would never go back. We had a meat loaf, which was tasteless, sweet potato fries, and a hamburger, all very average.

Waitstaff in western gear, salmon was great, the chicken was awesome, stay away from the pot roast, was way too salty, But, all in all, a great sit down meal in the middle of a hectic vacation.

We just finished an excellent meal at Hifalutin! I had a delicious half-rack of teriyaki-glazed ribs, hubby had fajitas (excellent) and the kiddo had creamy, cheesy mac and cheese from the kids menu. The blue corn muffins were yummy also. Our only regret food-wise was not having room for dessert! Our server was lovely and attentive and the atmosphere is... More

The food was well prepared, served hot, and promptly. Good southwestern comfort food and western decor made the restaurant fun. We each enjoyed our meal. Our server was pleasant and attentive, which we appreciate.

Love the western atmosphere of this small, cozy, and warm restaurant. We recently enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving meal on their outdoor patio. Took out of state guests there and had another great meal. Try their "comfort food" meatloaf. Their waitstaff has always been friendly and accommodating.
