Vacationing in Amarillo, we chose to have breakfast at the Donut Stop on Route 66. Not only were the donuts well priced (below Dunkin Donuts prices), but the customer service was very welcoming and friendly. When no sprinkle donuts were on the shelf, the woman helping us asked the woman making the donuts to make up three with chocolate frosting... More

Had no idea what to expect when we parked and walked in. We soon figured out this wasn't your ordinary donut store. People in line ahead of use were ordering multiple dozens at a time. When in Rome,do as the Roman... So we ordered a dozen for the three of us. These were the best donuts, fritters and cinnamon rolls... More

I tried this donut shop based on the reviews and I was glad I did. I do believe these are the best donuts I've ever tasted. We went to the one at I-40 and Bell. The architecture reminded me of a donut, inside and out which I thought was cute. But, most of all, I thought the donuts were the... More

The doughnuts were better than Dunkin Doughnuts. Above average in friendly service and very reasonably priced. We really liked the cinnamon clusters.

Absolutely loved this place. Clean, old and great food! I have never had a buttermilk donut like this and the plain glazed were amazingly light! My wife's chocolate cake was still warm, but still had plenty of icing. Two great places we found in Amarillo, here and Tyler's BBQ! Easy on and off of freeway,sw corner Bell and 40!

Many have tried but none have been able to beat this Amarillo original. Don't miss out on an amazing piece of Amarillo sweetness.

You just don't find donuts like this elsewhere ... they are light and fluffy. My favorites are the cherry or blueberry cake. This is also a great place for kids' birthdays - they let you decorate donuts with icing and sprinkles and eat a cup full of donut holes. The kids will go home sugared up and happy.

I wanted donuts and stopped in here. Best donuts I've ever had and to top it off I fed my family for under five bucks. You can't beat it. Warm and fluffy my only complaint is I didn't buy more, lol.

You can always count on great tasting breakfast when you stop in the Donut Stop. Can't recall a bad tasting donut to this day and I have been eating them for 25+ years here in Amarillo. The downside is you never know the sincerity or speed of service you will receive from the staff. It is a hometown family owned... More
