Donuts were wonderful, though a little pricey. I recommend getting plain with peanutbutter frosting.

There are donuts and there are Duck donuts. I love the concept of building your own donuts. They come out warm and tasty. My favorite is the maple bacon. What else can I say? This spot is a MUST. Come in for a dozen, come back for two or three and make sure to bring some home for your friends... More

This is just a fun place for the kids. Clearly, complete and utter sugar overload, but the donuts are warm and delicious (very very sweet). Kids got such a kick out of customizing their icing flavor and then watching the machines crank out the donuts. We went sort of late on a weekday in August (around 10am) and there was... More

You never had donuts until you had Duck donuts. They were so good that I ordered 2 dozen of them to take home with me and now that they are planning on shipping them I should be able to have my fix all winter long. These are so addicting - you've been warned!

Duck Donuts is one of those magical places that you wish was right in your home town... Luckily, it is not or we'd all weigh 400 pounds. I will not waste your time telling you how awesome hot donuts straight out of the fryer are, hundreds of reviewers have already done so. A tid-bit that many overlook - get a... More

Donuts are usually all the same but these are melt in your mouth...made fresh right in front of you. They are a warm, flavorful ring of yum. I would wait in a line twice as long. Repeat customers stand in line singing the praises as all the new customers drool. If you're on the outer banks don't miss this treat.

We always make sure to plan a trip to Duck Donuts no matter where on the island we stay. My daughter loves the bagels & cream cheese. Of course the donuts are awesome too. Cant wait for next years trip already!!

Because they're so fresh they're warm - and well worth the five mile bicycle ride each way to get them!

Really enjoyed these donuts--more cakelike than the typical Krispy Kreme, etc. Always fresh, and the line moves very quickly. My only complaint was that I wanted the peanut butter frosting on a chocolate donut (not a regular donut with chocolate and peanut butter frosting). Couldn't get it--not even offered. Don't understand this--please give me a little more variety (yes, even... More

Ok, here's the deal. Unless you want to wait in two very, very long lines (one for ordering, one for pick-up) for some really, really delicious donuts, call ahead and place your order. Pay with a credit card over the phone. There is absolutely nowhere to park when you go to pick up your order and when you do find... More
