Duck Donuts is a brilliant idea. All donuts are made to order, and there are MANY donut combinations available. All donuts start with a vanilla cake donut - you choose the quantity, and you choose the toppings for each donut. TIP: Go all out and get the bucket of 18 donuts. It's really cheap, and there are so many possible... More

We tried the DD in Duck and would recommend going to Kitty Hawk instead. You have to order in one location they walk across the hall to another location to pick up the donuts. When you order you order the coating choice then the topping choice. If you order a glaze with icing sugar these are both in the coating... More

If you aim to please your grandchildren and the adults, join the line at Duck Donuts to watch your donuts being made to your order. Not necessarily healthy but you are on vacation, and they are delicious. Plus you can nuke them for 8 seconds the next day!

We were told by two different families that Duck Donuts was a must on our recent trip to the Outer Banks. I am so glad we listened :) We went early one morning and grabbed 2 boxes for our house to share. They were truly the best donuts I've ever had. The lemon was a house favorite.

Duck is a lovely area, and Duck Donuts is an awesome place to grab a quick treat or a few dozen donuts for the family. I usually don't like cake donuts as much but these were fantastic. Eating one reminded me of eating a funnel cake at the fair: sweet and delicious.

If you ever say that places like dunkin donuts is your favorite donut place then you obviously haven't tried duck donuts. The donuts are absolutely amazing and even better warm. There are great prices and every time we are around a duck donuts we will get them.

This was an amazing treat. I would not have gone to this place except that everyone said we should. I had a chocolate frosted donut with sprinkles and it was amazing. Enjoy yourself and get one.

How do you enjoy a donut? Well, go to the Duck Donut and you will not be disappointed at all in any of the choices that you would make. You can tell by the line up of persons waiting to be served and by the aroma of warm donuts in the air. All kinds of topping are available for even... More
