Four of us went to Gourdough's West Campus Co-Op Trailer and the doughnuts were AMAZING. We took ours to go because it was raining. Enough chocolate on the Black Out for a chocoholic! Doughnut was good even without topping. Had a Miss Shortcake with cream cheese frosting and fresh strawberries and Sara's Joy (coconut and chocolate frosting). Everyone liked all... More

Gourdough's is one of those restaurants you see on tv and you just know you have to try it. The brunch menu is great and I encourage everyone to share plates so that everyone may taste a bit of everything. Additionally, the portions are quite large. There usually isn't a wait and the outdoor seating area is clean, comfortable, and... More

The doughnuts were AMAZING. I had a difficult time picking between all of the choices. I ended up with the flying pig, which was a huge doughnut with icing and BACON! Delicious. Must go to if you are in Austin. Plus the must they played was also cool. When we got there, Weezer was playing. It doesn't get better than... More

It's difficult to call a food truck a "restaurant." But when you're in Austin, you've got to try the food truck that's devoted to making and serving the best doughnuts ever: Gourdough's. It's a good thing that I was hungry, and that I brought a hungry companion, since we couldn't decide between the most incredible doughnut made with maple syrup... More

Went for the first time this past weekend. The wait was long (we stood in line about 45 minutes) but full of happy doughnut fans. My husband and I had the Funky Monkey and the Heavenly Hash. The Funky Monkey was absolutely perfect! The cream cheese icing is nice with the banana and keeps it from being overly sweet. The... More

Huge hot donut, served with any choice of toppings. I got the brownie bites and chocolate fudge icing. Donut was hot, crispy flaky outer shell and a soft and cake like interior. Highly recommend if you're in the area

These "doughnuts" are more like a big fried dough with many topping choices. If you've already eaten at another food truck, then definitely plan to share one. We ordered several to taste and all were delicious. We especially liked the ones made with the doughnut holes as the base because the were crispier and easier to share. A great experience!

Oh my god. I thought Cronus were intense. This is at the astronomical level. I had the Flying Pig. Bacon and maple icing on a huge glazed donut. THE BEST. EVER. Got to go. Take a look at the menu.

So went to food truck through google pay app and supposed to get discount which they would not honor because their computer was down. No apology no discount, nothing. I already ordered so paid. Really? How is it my fault that YOUR computer is down. Shabby customer service. If it were me I would have discounted anyway or at least... More

Went here twice and had a total of six doughnuts. They were all very tasty - best doughnuts we've ever had! If you can even call them that, it's basically a cake. One feeds two people quite easily. Make sure you eat them straight away, they're not as good when they're half an hour old. Also make sure your sweet... More
