We were looking to buy a place on the Outer Banks and were shocked to see that people selling their homes advertised in their listings their proximity to Duck Donuts - who knew that was a selling point for expensive beach properties? Krispy Kreme made a name for themselves by offering fresh hot donuts - but only glazed. Duck Donuts... More

Build your own doughnuts. I especially loved the cake batter style and how fresh the donuts were. There were several other toppings and glazes and lattes too!

On vacation in Kill Devil Hills this past July (2014), I had read about Duck Donuts prior to our trip, so "the boys" went out early one morning with a long list in hand. We were NOT disappointed. They watched all the donuts being freshly made - even when busy the wait was not long, maybe ten minutes at most.... More

A variety of different icings and toppings. Watch these donuts made fresh. A favorite us the chocolate with peanuts on top or the strawberry with coconut. A must stop when your in the OBX. Service is always spot on.

Read all the reviews for the Bacon/Maple donuts and thought I would drive 50 miles up the OBX to try them out. Ok, I was heading that direction, so it was more like make a left into the parking lot and try them out. They were good, but man, after all the press I had read and all the empy... More

This was or first experience with this place. We had heard good things so we were excited to try them. The whole set up is very inefficient. They make the doughnuts to order so we knew there would be a wait. We took ours to go but they put paper on the bottom of the box and then put the... More

I went in there with a couple of my friends, and first we were in there for over 30 minutes waiting to make an order. Finally after we order 3 donuts it took about 25 minutes to get them and they came off a cool rack (not even hot). and plus the pick up counter had icing and toppings on... More

The rave reviews did NOT prepare us for the treats we enjoyed! At 5 Stars, these donuts were underrated by 2 Stars! I arrived promptly at 6:30 a.m. to get fresh donuts for our breakfast. Watching the cooking process was quite interesting. There were so many toppings from which to choose that I ended getting twice the number of donuts... More
