Totally worth the wait in the line! A must try when in the area. The boys loved watching them make the donuts. Britts is the best when they are fresh and warm. Wish I lived down there but once a year they are a real treat.

I moved to Wilmington last summer and never got a chance to hit up Britt's before they closed for the season. I honestly didn't think these donuts could be as good as everyone told me. I was completely wrong. With family visiting the area, I decided it was a good time to finally try Britt's. OMG. Delicious. Britt's only serves... More

If you must have britts plan on getting in line a hour earlier than they open. And plan on being in line for a little while. they are very popular. I wished their doughnuts would have had a little more glaze on them. for me they were a little dry. they are very different from krispy kreme. britts are made... More

These doughnuts really lived up to the hype. Stood in line to get them and they were worth the time and money. Highly recommended.

Best donut shop ever. The wait was about an hour but everyone was enjoying the donuts. As they were leaving you could see the look of total satisfaction and happiness as they bit into the donuts! If ever in Wilmington, this is a must have! There is a reason that they have been in business since 1939!

I always hit up the #1 trip advisor review when visiting a new city, and am glad I did on this trip. They're only open on Fri/Sat/Sun since its not quite summer yet, however with no website we didn't know this and waited around for a bit on Monday. No big deal, just had to do it the old fashioned...

This past week I walked down the street to Britt's Donut Shop for a real treat. The donuts are hot and fresh and sweet. The line was not too long on a sunny Saturday morning and well worth the short wait. Then, one can take those donuts and head for the boardwalk and have a nice snack on the Atlantic... More

One of the greatest donuts on the planet. I could literally live off of Britts for the rest of my life. Don't be shy. Get one!

Opening day Friday lines were to long for us. We tried again on Saturday and it was the same. So Sunday morning we were there at 8:30am and enjoyed the best glazed donut with coffee and people watching as always.
