best doughnuts on the planet

I can only say that they were fresh and tasty Too many varieties to mention. So good are they that I swear the wait line went to the highway. As one reviewer noted they were fresh and hot so I would wait for them to cool a bit. Outstanding. Several/many visits each vacation to Duck Doughnuts are... read more

We got a dozen donuts on a Saturday morning. Donuts are made to order, served hot, with various glaze and topping choices. Look at the website before you go to know your choices. These donuts are cake style and are almost more like dessert than breakfast. Peanut butter glaze as well as both the vanilla and chocolate glazes are yummy.... More

This donuts are hot, fresh, and made to order. Walk in, fill out your order however you want it, and the donuts are made in front of you. This place gets busy but you are in and out quickly.

Stopped in for some homemade donuts. Heard this place was good. Pros: fresh & hot; nothing sitting around; all made to order; they fry the donuts right in front of you & hand dip the icing; donuts are cake based with TONS of choices for icing & toppings Cons: a little more pricey than we are used to but worth...

One word, AMAZING. Don't leave OBX without having Duck Donuts. Sinfully Amazing. You won't regret a stop. This is a must for us every time while at OBX.

They are better if you eat them hot! There are several locations on the Outer Banks, so look for the one closest to your location

The Donuts are worth the wait. Lot's of variety with daily special flavors. People line up outside to get the donuts which many order by the dozen.the parking lot at the Duck location is too small, but people figure it out.

This is a must stop if you are in OBX. They are hot donuts made to order and they are incredible!! They are all vanilla cake donuts and you select which toppings you want and they add the toppings while you wait. I would recommend the lemon frosted and chocolate frosted. ONce they are cold they do change their taste,... More

Great donuts, order and prepared on the spot. Delicious donuts. Go early and avoid a line. It is clean, well run, and a fun place to stop with the kids.

We had heard so much about Duck Donuts that we had to try them - not to mention that donuts are one of my very guilty pleasures. We knew we were on to something when we saw a line out the door when we arrived. Once we got inside we had to fill out an order form so our dozen... More
