Delicious donuts.

When the donuts are hot it is amazingly delicious. It just melts in your mouth and you can't help but eat half a dozen!

Look for the hot now light and you will not be disappointed. Light sweet savory fried dough, with a melted sugar coating. Yum Yum This is not cakey like dunk kin doughnuts.

This landmark in Raleigh has been around for over 50 years. When the Krispy Kreme light is on everyone knows that you can go in and get hot donuts from the line. You never know who you may see since the location is in downtown. A large selection of donuts and some of the tastiest.

These donuts are always great and for the price all i can really say is go try them for yourself, they feel like they melt in your mouth and when they turn on the hot sign then you taste those hot donuts waiting for them to be ready is worth it.

Krispy Kreme is widely known in these parts for its melt-in-your-mouth, fresh glazed doughnuts. Get them while they're hot (actually warm is best, when the glaze has had just enough time to partially solidify. You can eat in at this Krispy Kreme and actually watch the sugar coated delights being made right before you very eyes on the doughnut line... More

The retro sign outside is cool and the store looked huge so we decide to go in to grab a coffee. I really don't eat doughnuts, but since they make the glazed donuts fresh here, I gave it a shot! When you order glazed donuts, they go to the back to get you a freshly made one, and yes, you... More

We eat at Krispy Kreme at home, it is our second favorite donut shop. This location did not have hit donuts and the custard filled did not have much filing inside. Employees were nice and the donuts were good.

This is a great example of the inherent problems with the whole ranking system employed here. How can you compare a donut shop (an international chain, at that) to a place like St. Jacques (which certainly deserves it's top ranking)?!?

I've had the Krispy Kreme donuts in the Dominican Republic but they were not the same....not sure why. Maybe it's just a fact hear eating hot Donuts in 50 degree weather is just better. The shop had a really odd smell today...burning mettle so it sort of ruined the visit for my daughter who said she is now ruined for... More

Take the time and stop by this iconic little gem. Yes... it's donuts.. but they are good! Bring the kids and watch the donuts being made through the big glass windows. This is a must visit restaurant. If the sign is "HOT", you are likely to find me inside!
