Best Donuts

Donuts here are the absolute best anywhere. The selection is wonderful and so are the peanut butter filled ones. Prices are very good.

My grandchildren love this place. To me, the food is just donuts, but there is an enormous variety, service is quick, prices very good and the place has a community and historic "feel." They also have muffins. I wish they would improve their coffee. Sigh ... We've been to Round Rock Donuts in Texas which is a bit better, but... More

The interior looks like a place out of the 60s. The staff is friendly and fast. The donuts are amazing. Bills has been named one of the best in the US which is no surprise to any of the locals. Its not unusual to see regulars having coffee and a donut in the mornings, or to face a line out... More

I have been going to Bill's Donuts since 1972. We used to walk there after Friday night football games from the old stadium to the center of town. Yes, they're good, but I just don't get them as "great." Honestly, it's become more of a hangout for middle and older-aged men who sit and drink their coffee. Luckily, they can't... More

We used to provide Bill's Donuts to the Oktoberfest artisans during the Dayton Art Institute's Oktoberfest every year. When patrons saw the Bill's boxes they asked to buy them from us! We all love this place - it's old and authentic and absolutely delish. They are open late at night too.

I never met a Bill's donut I didn't like! Many of my friends that have moved away from Dayton absolutely have to have some Bill's donuts when returning for a visit! They say that the national franchises can't compare and I certainly agree! Always a special treat!

I was introduced to Bill's doughnuts a few months ago after some friends and I went to a "paint your pet" class at the painting place down the road. In their doughnuts do not disappoint! I've stopped by whenever I drive down the road since then! Sometimes there are lines but they move very quickly. In the summer there is... More

I love going to Bill's. They make every variety of donut under the sun. I haven't had a bad one yet. It's open 24/7; therefore, you can get your fix in the morning or late at night. Don't ever expect to find an empty parking lot - it's always full. Wait time is usually short because they are well-staffed. I... More

My family and I frequently visit Bill's for some delicious donut lovin'! This place has the best donuts in Dayton - and possible the world! Definitely take time to stop into this little "landmark" for a treat! My favorites: donut holes, cake donut, cake donut with coconut, butter twists
