My eyes were way bigger than my stomach because these things are massive! Super rich so it's hard to finish a full one alone! The "make your own" option is great! Fun atmosphere surrounded with other foodtrucks

basically all the food (sandwiches) are served on doughnuts. It was a bit too much. Environment looks like it would be fun in the evening or football games.

Went to Gordough's skeptical of all the hype. Totally worth it. The doughnuts themselves were divine. Crispy outside, so soft and airy inside - the savory of the doughnut went so well with the sweet toppings (we tried peach and a chocolate brownie topping). Can't wait to return!

Delicious and an experience not to be missed. The “doughnuts” are prepared fresh and there is a wide variety of them (check out their website), each unique and like no other doughnut you’ve ever had. Donuts here are not the standard round pasty with a hole in the middle; they are huge pastries designed to fill you up. We shared... More

When we arrived on a Sunday night, there were about 20 people waiting. Looked like a good busy food truck. Half in line to place order, the other half waiting at tables. Not eating, but waiting for their orders. First time, so not sure if that's normal. I think the 2 guys were having a rough night, juggling with prepping... More

or I would weigh a gajillion pounds. Initially I thouht it was going to be like fair food (you know, the glazed donut with a burger in the middle?). This was so far from the truth. All of their bread items are donuts, this much is true. But they are savory donuts that melt in your mouth and compliment the... More

I thought sandwiches and everything on a doughnut and deep fried would be really too much -- disgusting even, BUT -- I was SO WRONG. The doughnuts are light and fresh -- it is incredibly delicious. And their specialty drinks...I cannot rave enough. I love this place. The brussel sprouts (not breaded, not in a doughnut) -- are also extremely... More

Best donuts on the planet! We always stop by when were in town visiting. My favorite is the flying pig. This time we tried "The Gordough" a fried egg and maple sausage on a donut. The service is always friendly and the donuts never disappoint. Such a unique experience!

My husband and I went on a Sunday morning and thought the donuts were amazing. We were there about 930 and ended up waiting an hour. They ran out of a lot of donuts by then, so go early. Bring something to drink while your waiting. My husband had the bacon one and I had the cinnamon sugar with cream... More
