My only complaint is with the drive thru.... they have never gotten my order correct once.... so I just park the car and go in for the most delicious doughnuts that we have found in the area.

Their donuts are good if they're fresh from the oven. If they sit for any length of time (which they usually do), they're terrible. I live down the street so we used to go there a lot. After getting rock hard donuts a few times, we gave up. Employees aren't that nice and they only accept cash. Wouldn't recommend.

My uncle goes here a lot and loves the yummies. They are good. However...I always get the wrong change back and the ladies just aren't pleasant.

A local business with delicious and fresh donuts, cinnamon rolls, apple fritters and cookies. The cinnamon rolls are exceptional and nearly as large as a dinner plate...plenty to share. A must when visiting Lancaster, Ohio.

If ever passing through Lancaster or close by, stop for donuts! They're open 24 hours. As soon as you walk in, it smells so good. The donuts are as good as it looks and smells. We brought some back to my parents.

My husband and I picked up some donuts while on our way home. We have had Donut World donuts in the past but it was many years ago. It was nice to see that they are just as good now as they were back then.

Another real find! Get 'em while they're hot. Make sure to stop by this icon. Better than any chain, the local touch has great appeal.
