Custom donuts.. fast and good

I like Duck Donuts... I like the concept and the idea of made to order donuts just like I want them, BUT.. I'm not sure they are the end all, be all, of donuts. They are good donuts, though, and worth a visit IF you are in Duck (or one of their other locations) and there is no line.

I'm not gonna lie. These donuts are rather tasty, but I prefer a certain famous NC brand over them by far. Duck Donuts goes with the cake-like donut style, and they have a lot of great choices to pick from, so everyone should find something they will like. They definitely get the job done. Huge variety and highly customizable, my... More

Run don't walk to Duck Donuts. You will love it and the kids will be thrilled to watch them make the donuts right in front of you. Be warned the lines can be long they are that good. Not to be missed while in the OBX

Not a fancy place, a line to order and another to pick up but the feeling of a box of warm fresh donuts will make you feel like a hero. Lots of choices in toppings and the donut of the day is a very nice surprise. Duck Donuts is my nephew's new favorite vacation spot.

The kid in me loves watching them make the donuts to order. I love seeing the batter frying, the attendants dipping the donuts into the various toppings -- it is just plain fun to watch. The warm cake donuts melt as you savor them. Buy these fresh and hot for best enjoyment!

Wow, worth the walk in mornings in the hot, humid temperatures. The donuts are so soft and so yummy, just have one of each.... Will load up to take back home.

Wonderful to watch the overall process; all 4 types chosen were fabulous. Duck Donuts is a favorite in Duck for years. It has recently opened at several other locations in OBX & Virginia. Wonder if it will go international?!😀😀
