Made a quick detour on my way through Indianapolis to try some of these donuts. I was not disappoints with the food, maybe just the line. The line moved pretty quick, but it was still probably a 20 minute stop to pick up donuts. The donuts seem to be continually flowing from the back, so there doesn't seem to be... More

We have been eating donuts from Longs for several years now. It funny at work when people find out I live south they ask me to pick up a box. We even have coworkers from other countries that visit there when in town. Keep up the great work longs!

Must visit while in Indy. Get the plain glazed donuts. You will not be able to stop eating them. Absolutely delicious. Always long lines though so don't be impatient.

Every year I purchase 2 dozen chocolate iced yeast donuts for my sister for her birthday. She lives on the north side but LOVES these donuts.

We regularly stop by Long's and get some donuts. On a busy morning, the food is fresh and delicious. While I have no complaints, their reputation is much bigger than the quality. The freshness and variety is not the best I have seen, but still good and I look forward to going.

These donuts have been a favorite of mine for years. Now that Krispie Creme is gone this is all I have. I wish I could have a yeast donut every day.
