never had a donut this good, and I'm a huge Krispy Kreme fan - honestly their selections are all good. Particularly loved the lemon frosting ones.

Leave it to a place called Duck Donuts to come up with this unique combination. Neither KK or DD have anything like this OBX specialty. You can only eat one - they are so rich! I think that it is funny that they sell them individually, or by a 1/2 dozen, dozen, or "bucket full." A must try! But be... More

I travel frequently so on Cake donuts nobody beats the Oriental Donut House in California. That being said Ducks has NO jelly or custard filled donuts (real bummer) but they are dipped in some pretty awesome sweetness Beats Dunkin all DAY....Nope they haven't any yeast type donuts no problem for me cause unless you get KK in Winston Salem fresh...

I think I have tasted the absolute best donut on earth! We visited Duck Donuts, and after figuring out the process (watching others) we got in line and filled out the order form. We got a dozen donuts and a coffee. Each donut we ordered had a different frosting and topping ( the most popular is Maple Bacon). The donuts... More

These donuts are fresh and warm when you get them and are made right in front of you. You pick your coating and topping for their plane cake donuts. We chose maple coating with bacon topping, chocolate with peanuts, lemon, and cinnamon sugar. Everything was delicious ! My only complaint is they didn't have a restroom available for paying customers.... More

Good donuts and coffee, but cramped so room really to stand. Their food explains the long lines and cramped spaces.

These donuts are a must every time we visit the OBX. The are simply out of this world good. I'm actually quite glad that they're not by me in Ohio or I would weigh 300 lbs. A must get. My favorite is the maple bacon.
