Texas sized donuts...yum!! There was a small wait at 3pm on a Saturday, but it was worth it. We got the maple and bacon bar, chocolate bar, chocolate donut with crème, and cherry roll. We thought they were all excellent and will be back again.

Well if you love donuts you need to try this place. Normal donuts are huge, but if you want you can order a 3lb donut. It's also delicious. Lots of flavors to choose from, but I just like them glazed.

My wife is a sweetaholic - and I am nearly as bad. Even in mid-afternoon, one can always use a caloric pick-me up and this is the place to go. There was always someone in line during our visit, but service was fast and friendly. The French cruller, the bacon maple donut and long john were awesome. Some for snack... More

Every time we are in the area, we make the drive over to Peterson's. They have an amazing selection of donuts. The donuts are large and worth every calorie. I absolutely love the cream cheese muffin, I always get two so I can take one home with me to enjoy. Definitely worth a visit!

The line was long but the service was quick and friendly. The donuts were huge but frosting was a bit to thin.

A visit to Escondido would not be complete without a visit to this landmark that has provided donuts, muffins, and more to this town for generations. Everything is made in their location on South Escondido Boulevard...and enjoyed by old and young alike.

This is an institution in Escondido. Day or night there is someone in line for their great products. When they close for vacation, we go into mourning. These are not crumbly, over sweetened donuts, they are substantial and big enough for a meal. I have to hold the steering wheel straight every time I go by just to keep from... More

They did not compromise taste for size. Most likely the largest selection of gigantic donuts. Quality was great. Cheese roll was the best I have had. Very friendly staff. They really hustle to keep the lines moving. Decent parking. Big windows to see all the selection of pastries. Will be back soon.
