Mmmmm

We came here because of all the amazing reviews on this hole in the wall donut shop. The apple fritters did not disappoint. They were incredibly yummy with just the right amount of crispness. If you're visiting Benson, you should stop off for a donut.

I am a doughnut connoisseur, I will not waste the calories on a crappy/old/stale doughnut. These doughnuts are the best I have ever eaten!!! They are soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside, the icing never overpowers the natural goodness of these little morsels of delight. You can taste the love with your first bite and it impresses all... More

I almost hate to review this place, as it is hard enough to get my favorite doughnuts. If everyone finds out about them, I may never be able to get them! :) These guys make fabulous doughnuts (and yes, I do love Krispy Kremes), but these guys make a cinnamon apple twist, with a hint of chocolate in the mix!...

I bought a couple of standard glazed donuts and a cinnamon circle. All three were super fresh and priced very fairly. made for a tasty treat.

omG! The apple fritters......just do it! Just off I10 and easy return. Jump off the highway and run in to this place for the best apple fritters ever, and we've done our share of taste testing.

I'm from New York City. Was very surprised at the quality of the pastries in a store in such a little town. Nice variety. No frills atmosphere - but always great service from an extremely nice lady.

Some of the best doughnuts around. I had a friend say they were driving to Phoenix from New Mexico, thought they were so great that they insisted they stop on the return trip. I like the long johns and the filled doughnuts.

The doughnuts appeared to be fresh and homemade, but the lack of decaffeinated coffee gives this coffee shop an 'average' rating.

We found this place on a road trip to Tucson. Stopped for gas in Benson. Donuts sound like a good snack. Yum the orange cake blew my mind it was so good. So was the crumb donut. I didn't try any of the raised, but they looked delicious. Already planning a return stop on our way home.
