In love with these donuts

Having moved away from Amarillo nearly 5 years ago, I always make time to grab some when I come visit. I can find good donuts like this anywhere! The cherry long john and the blueberry are my favorite, but they're all good! Go get some!

Great donuts made most of the morning not donuts that were made hours ago and served up cold, pretty good coffee. This place is always busy. We ate there three times in three days

Found this place by accident and was pleasantly surprised! The customer service is awesome and donuts are pretty darn good too. I was surprised to learned that they had several locations in the Amarillo area - wish that they would expand more! P.S. Buy the tshirt!

This is a very large donut shop located just off the highway in Amarillo. We went around 7 am on a Sunday morning expecting a large crowd, and the place was almost empty! They still had plenty of freshly-baked donuts for us to choose from. I was personally disappointed that there weren't any icing-filled donuts (just bavarian cream-filled), but I... More

This was near our hotel and decided to stop and check it out. What a refreshing shop! The staff was super engaging as a 7 and 9 year old asked tons of donut questions. The quality of the donuts and the fritters was exceptional. The manager came out and checked on us. We will definitely be back again...and again!

I have been to two different locations (not sure how many there are) and have had great experiences at both. The donuts and fritters are made on site and served hot and fresh. They are perfectly priced (about 80 or 90 cents each). We come here every time we drive through Amarillo. We stopped at the Georgia St. shop this... More

Forget that national chain of overpriced sugar doughnuts, if your near here stop here! Period. Only one other place in the whole state could compete and they are down in Round Rock anyway. The service was above and beyond and the doughnuts are fantastic

Donut Stop has dominated the Amarillo Donut Market for years because of the intense loyalty of the people of the Panhandle and Donut Stops local roots. The donuts are average when they are the very best. Every donut taste the same no matter what you get they all have the same undertone of some ingredient in the batter. It is... More

The donuts were ok, I've had better. But their prices are great, so we stocked up for our trip! Again, donuts were just ok.

I love to go to the location at I-40 & Bell when we're in town. My boys and I can watch them make donuts for over an hour. Everything we've had is a sweet treat; Cherry or Chocolate long johns or regular donut, coconut, maple crunch, blueberry cake, cinnamon roll, maple crunch cinnamon roll. It is knock your teeth out...
