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...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....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.

My husband and I visited Dusty's for the first time recently and were slightly disappointed. It is a small specialty grocery with little variety and is very over priced. We did purchase some specialty ice cream sandwiches called Nye's Cream sandwiches which were delicious. Good...More

Dusty's Superette looks like an old fashioned roadside supermarket outside, and is just as unassuming inside, but what a gem! The lady at August Produce told us they had a great bakery section in the back and boy was she right! They had some of...More

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!
