“Wonderful Western Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

Great décor welcomes you to this small restaurant! They have an extensive menu of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, chicken, and steaks with salmon, prawns, meatloaf, and pot roast rounding it off. Something for everyone! The dining room is cozy but they also have outdoor seating and a great bar area. Wait staff is always responsive. Never had a bad experience so I continue to go back time and time again. Highly recommend!

“Great food at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

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.

“Quiet steak on a private patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

This is one of the few places where you can get a decent steak, that won't cost you an arm and a leg. Located on oracle just south of orange grove this unassuming quaint restaurant is a nice place to meet friends and have a good meal. The prime rib is tender juicy and the 10 ounce was just right. For something different try the fried green beans and pickles.

“Great Place for Families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Acting on the advice of several clients, I finally made it to Hifalutin. The decor is country casual & service very responsive. We started out with monsoon punch to wash down our bruschetta. My companion chose the prime rib special. The meat was prepared to perfection, & nice & meaty (not too much fat). I had the half chicken, which again was delish! The blue corn muffins were a hit with us & the kids. The kids had the usual burger & chicken fingers. The sweet potato fries were a nice option. We will definitely be back!
