This is a great place-fast service, good food and coffee, easy location and friendly people. I have never liked jelly donuts before I had theirs. They also making lots of seasonal favorite donuts.

Best donuts I have had. Tons of variety: pumpkin spice, german chocolate, toasted coconut etc. I stopped in for pick up but the location has a great old diner feel and I'd love to come back for a cup of coffee and some more donuts.

This place blows Dunkin Donuts right out of the water. Which is why I don't understand why Trip advisor has the wrong picture of the restaurant on this webpage.

I love the donuts here. So many choices and so many seasonal donuts. A wonderful family run institution where my kids can watch them make donuts. And they love sitting at the counter too.

Original Country Donuts far exceeds DD! Fresh all the time, drive thru and you can still get peanut donuts!! Also, there is a phone app to be alerted to special deals! We went to the drive thru at 2:00 AM & the server was charming and the donuts still warm! YUMMY!

Donuts are always fresh and good. Not hard or stale like some places. They also have good chili.

It was love at first bite. Their donuts are just simply the best. There's no weird after taste you can get from chain store donuts. They make their coffee just the way I like it too. Everyone working there are friendly and service is fast even on Sat morning when the place is packed with customers. If you're lucky to... More
