Donuts are excellent, Workers are not

I've been going to Original Country Donuts ever since they built this location in Elgin. It is nice that their donuts are homemade right in the store. Their donuts are excellent, in fact I can't remember that I've ever had a bad donut there. If I had any criticism about the donuts, it would be that... read more

It's a tradition in our family, when we carve pumpkins, to do so with donuts and cider. We had been routinely disappointed by chain donut stores in the past, so we really wanted to find something small and local. We found that and more in Original Country Donuts!! It definitely didn't hurt that the first time we tried them, they... More

This location consistently serves up delicious freshly made donuts. Their Apple Cider Donuts are fantastic. Served warm and wonderful. Their other donuts are also really good. Some of my favorites are the Chocolate Covered Custard or Vanilla Creme filled. The only problem I have ever had was when going later in the morning, they are sometimes out of my favorites,... More

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. That is definitely not Country Donuts, doesn't look a bit like that, and the Dunkin Donuts signage is really misleading. Anyway I have always had great, fresh donuts from Country Donuts... More

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.
