I had a great grilled chicken salad & beer. Not a big place....bar to the left and maybe 25 tables in total.

We visited HiFalutin with a Groupon, having driven by and wondered about it for the 12 years we've lived in Tucson. Friends recently raved about their prime rib and we made plans to visit with them to give it a try. But, no prime rib last Thursday night (usually only Fri/Sat. "but call first," per our server,) so we perused the menu further.
Food was excellent!! Last night's special was Jambalya, unusual for a Cowboy-with Mexican restaurant, and while he labelled it "not Louisianna," my husband raved about the flavors and gladly brought home the leftovers. Our friends split the shrimp with pasta entree, and my 2-appetizer dinner of Mexican shrimp wrapped in bacon with an unusual "cole slaw/salsa" and sweet potato fries was absolutely excellent. Different flavors than anything I'd ever eaten in the shrimp dish, and crispy hot fries. Couldn't ask for anything to be better!
We split a huge apple crisp ala mode divided among 4 of us and there was plenty.
Service ~~ Jesse ~~ was perfect.
It was noisy; a birthday party gathered in the open-to-everything-else bar as we were there during Happy Hour. Excellent food/service, but NOT a quiet or romantic setting.
We note they are open for lunch, have Taco-Tuesdays and all-you-can-eat Ribs on Wed. We will absolutely return ~~ and gladly pay full price ~~ and this may become our new favorite neighborhood restaurant.
