Who can go to Hampton and not get a fried dough?! Which is probably why it's $4.15 for something that costs 10cents to make. Not like back in the day when you could get one for a buck..the staff doesn't speak good English but they're always pleasant to my daughter as we go 1-2 times a week so they got... More

Finally, we were able to return to Blinks after many years. Blinks fried dough is shaped differently from most fried dough vendors. I rate it higher than others that I have tried. The powdered "doe" is a classic and there are many other toppings available as well.

We always come here and the fried dough is great! Always hot, plenty of toppings to choose from. This dough is a long thin piece, not round or thick. Yummy every time!

If your looking for the best fried dough then this is the place to get it. Others sell it, but Blinks is the best. They have two locations on the beach.

This is a must stop while at the beach to get your fried dough fix! We've been coming here for years and will continue to patronize them.

We went to Blinks Fry Doe with my family. My opinion is based on having Elephant Ears at a carnival. I thought the dough was good but tough. It wasn't as crispy as I thought it should be. I wanted it to melt in my mouth and it didn't.
