Food and ambience

HiFalutin Rapid Western Grill opened in 2002, but the dream started way back in 1986. That is when we were creating a name for Baggin's, our gourmet sandwich shops, and happened to come across the word "HiFalutin". This word stood out to us because we've always wanted to open a unique, western-like restaurant and we knew that HiFalutin would be the perfect name! Our family dream came true when we opened HiFalutin Rapid Western Grill in Tucson. We are passionate about great food, entertainment, and an inviting atmosphere. When you visit us for brunch, lunch, dinner, or drinks, we want to make sure you have a "HiFalutin" experience that you'll always remember!

We visited one of our favorite Tucson restaurants to check out their Sunday Brunch menu and were delighted! We sat on the cozy covered patio. I had the Southwestern omelet. My husband had the French toast. Both were delicious! Our server, June P, was very...helpful.More

really good food....not a huge place. Busy, service friendly and mostly good. Best bbq ribs we have had in Tucson. Salmon very good as well.

Hifalutin is a comfy western bistro, with indoor and outdoor seating on Tucson's main artery, Oracle Road. With decor deserving of a western bunkhouse, crossed with a mexican hascienda, this restaurant has not only something for everyone, but GOOD something for everyone. We enjoyed the...chicken fajitas, Green Chili Tortilla soup, and the Hacienda Cheese crisp for an appetizer. Kudos to the chef. The fajitas, a mountain of mexican seasoned chicken with guac, cheese, salsa on the side, could feed the entire Arizona football team. The soup, cup and bowl available, was a symphony of chilis, beans, noodles and corn in a tangy chicken broth. The bowl was more than enough for one person. Our cheese crisp was in the category of a large pizza, covered in mexican cheese and fresh tomato. The crust, just as thin as possible to give the toppings a perfect pedestal. Full Bar. The Bellini (peach cocktail) received a strong thumbs up. The bloody mary came with a touch of seasoning and not full of vegetables and tiny umbrellas. There's a children's menu: mac and cheese, quesadillas.....ice cream Brunch with a separate menu on Saturdays and Sundays. Fare runs from classic huevos rancheros to Hiflautin Eggs Benedict, Southwestern Omlette w/home fries and Monte Cristo. Plenty of unique salads including pulled chicken cobb, seared flank steak salad and fresh shrimp with mexican bbq. The main menu runs from oysters to wild bill pasta, beef stroganoff, and steaks and burgers galore from flank to ribe eye, half roasted chicken and prawns, meatloaf and tacos. Plenty of free parking. Take out and curbside available. Big screen tv's throughout. Service is remarkable. Our waitress was spot on across the board. A pro. Hifalutin is a spot to visit frequently. One of Tucson's best. Priced reasonably across the board.More

Have eaten at HiFalutin on may occasions & the food has been good. But on May 1st I ordered the chicken fajita. It tasted like no other fajita I have ever had. It was presented on a sizzle plate as it should have been but...instead of being hot & sizzling it was sitting in 1 inch of tomato liquid. It looked & tasted like chicken stew, soft mussy peppers& onions. It was awful! I took two taste's& had the waitress take it away. The waitress could have cared less & made no offer for me to order something else, she was rude & unhelpful. Will not eat there in the future.More

I haven't been here in several years and I am asking myself why??? Great western decor, and a friendly atmosphere. Wonderful variety of menu items and down home comfort food choices.

It was my last day in Tucson so I decided I wanted to try something American since it was Labor Day so I chose this place and had done Mexican first two nights in town. I was excited about the Cowboy Ribeye I ordered until...the first bite that I could barely chew. That continued for the whole steak. You would think a steak maybe 1/4 inch stick wouldn't be that tough but I was wrong. And it was cooked medium. The margarita was nice as was the shrimp other than having a partial wooden skewer in one of the shrimp. I mentioned the steak issue to the waiter and she said she would tell the kitchen. That steak definitely was not worth the cost of it. I doubt I'll be back when I make it back to Tucson again.More

went there for my birthday. never there before and see it frequently, just never stopped. obvious covid stuff in place, masks for all employees, noticeable spaces where tables were. We started with 2 appetizers, the shrimp and the twice baked potato skins. shrimp were unique...and very tasty, the slaw it was served on had copious onion so I avoided that, and the potato skins were good. Wife had a pulled chicken cobb salad and she liked that, 2 of us had the 1/2 rack of ribs. very tender and surprising very meaty, way beyond what we were expecting, glad I didn't order the full rack. served with a glaze instead of bbq sauce which was good, just that the ribs were very dry. my pork ribs come out dry on occasion so can understand these. The server was Bryce, the guy is great, very attentive, carries on a conversation, and looks you in the eye. free chocolate cake at the end as this was my birthday, yum. The dry ribs are what downgrades this a notch in my mind.More
