Dusty's is a gem. Great meats, amazing frozen baked goods. We always keep their frozen ready to bake cinnamon buns and oatmeal raisin cookies in the freezer. It is an old time road side superette grocery and butcher shop on the side of the road as you enter Highlands, NC.

Dusty's is a treasure trove of a Mom and Pop grocery. Dusty has the best beef from wonderful steaks to ground chuck. The Bratwurst are a favorite of ours to grill. The little bakery shop in the back room has mouthwatering freshly made pastries and cakes.

Not only does Dustys meat market have great fresh cut steaks, but now you can sit inside or outside on his deck and enjoy one of his many salad or sandwich selections! Have to tell you it is by far the most reasonable lunch we have had in a long time. We ordered a wrap with chicken, Brie, apples, and nuts, served with kettle chips and dip on the side. It was certainly as they suggested enough for two people! We didn't want to over eat since it was late in the day so we shared as they said not only are the wraps large but so are the sandwiches. It was tasty and fresh. I also love browsing all the hidden treasures around the store. We also decided to eat home tonight to enjoy some nice juicy Dustys NY strip steaks along with their stuffed potatoes. Picked up some of their many appetizers in the homemade frozen food case. Don't miss this low profile friendly local family run market, remember to bring your empty stomach!

Dusty's was recommended to us last summer for great steaks and it is right on! The very helpful man behind the counter cut a NY strip and a ribeye that were beautiful and delicious. We don't bother going out for steaks any more - we just go to Dusty's and cookout at home. Our other favorite item at Dusty's is the frozen, unbaked cinnamon buns. They come in two sizes (the bigger ones bake up HUGE) and they're great because you can make two or twelve depending on your crowd. Friendly staff and lots of interesting items.

Dusty's is known for great meat! Their ground sausage is outstanding (but you can't think about your diet when you eat it). Hand cut steaks, a good variety of frozen appetizers, a little bakery (I can't resist the chocolate chip cookies). Just a fun place to visit and roam around.
