This review is for the Duck, NC location. Definitely the best doughnuts we have had. All are made to order, rapidly delivered and are hot from the fryers. You pick icing and toppings. We ordered a dozen of various types and all were excellent. Service was friendly. I looked at the few lower ratings and most of these were not... More

There are several Duck Donuts stores - we went to the one in Duck. The set-up is a bit different , as is the menu. You order in one area then walk directly across a walkway to pick up your order. The staff person we talked with was very friendly and explained the ordering process very thoroughly. The donuts are... More

If you like donuts, just go here and enjoy. The donuts are all basically the same base plain donut but you can order any number of toppings to your exact liking. They will be warm, they will be fresh, they will be sweet and they will be delicious. Be careful though as once you order them once on your trip,... More

This is a wonderful little shop, where you place your order, walk across the courtyard, and watch your donut cook and be topped with whatever you ordered. Totally fresh, with no chance of it not being fresh. It is great fun to watch, and even better to devour! So soft and velvety! A definite must do when in Duck or... More

Like so many people, we had heard so much about them that we had to try them! So glad we did! Much lighter than any cake donuts I have ever eaten. Eat them while they are warm! Like Lays potato chips, I betcha can't eat just one!

My hubby and I drove by Duck Donuts each day of our 10 day trip to OBX and finally stopped in at 6:30 am the day we were driving back home to Michigan. We didn't know what we were in for! Fresh, warm donuts with frosting melting on top, warm steam rising off it when you broke it apart! We... More

Our 2nd trip to OBX and we stopped here for the special of the day, maple bacon donut. I have to say this had to be some of the best fresh made donuts I have had in a long time. My family and I will be going back to Duck Donuts again when we go back to OBX.

Seriously!! Fresh, hot, made-to-order donuts?! Ridiculous. We go to Duck a couple of times a year every year, and Duck Donuts is a part of our family tradition. BUT-- they are so good that we really can only go there once a trip (or maybe twice). Whole box will be gone within a hot minute of hitting the table. Not... More
