If the HOT sign is on, it's a must. It's also really cool to see the doughnuts being made. I'm not a huge donut fan but I do love a Krispy Kreme Doughnut every once in a while!!

This place produces some of the best donuts you will ever have. Make sure to swing in if the light for hot and fresh is on. Melt in your mouth.

I was treated with respect. Great doughnuts. The store was very clean. Well advised. I competed in the Krispy Kreme Challenge and it was a blast. Just don't stay at Red Roof Inn and get treated like they think everyone is a slime.

Don't go if you're calorie watching. Do go if you love hot melt in your mouth doughnuts! The coffee is delish, too. I typically buy it at the grocery store to grind at home. Only drawback is the seating area is very small - more for take out than sit in and eat. They also have a drive in window.... More

Has the recipe changed? I have to say this is the first time I have ever, not enjoyed a glazed KK. There's nothing that I can say that was specifically wrong, just that something wasn't right. Maybe I was tired, it was just after midnight after all. I stopped for more, the next day, while driving through Winston-Salem. I had... More

Best Krispy Kreme in the state. An original in the old part of town where you can see donuts being made right in front of you and get them hot off the press. Interesting donut making - baking and dipping equipment. Like a K.K. museum!

Krispy Kreme doughnuts are like heaven on earth. The Hot Doughnuts now sign calls to us every time we see it driving by. It is hard to explain the wonder of all things Krispy Kreme so I end up bringing all of our visitors there.

The best doughnut anywhere! First came as a child in the 60s...and still just as good!! KK will be packed...then you drive down the street to dunkin' donuts and they look like they need to join a lonely hearts club.

There really is no donut shop like Krispy Kreme. And, there are very few things quite as good as the pumpkin spice donut (which they, unfortunately, only have a few months of the year). Go when the red light is illuminated out front and you will get a free donut hot off the line.
