By far my favorite donut shop! Very unique selection - the SQUEALER (bacon & maple on a donut - YES!) is a must try. The texture of their donuts is perfect - denser than a KK, but not as cake-like as DD - PERFECT. It's worth the drive to Smithfield. Be aware - when they sell out, they... read more

Ringo’s is a great place for fresh, just-cooked doughnuts. Looking at the glass display cases you’re torn between the various frosted diet-killers. Just when you’ve picked out what you want, out comes a tray of differently topped doughnuts! Their best is the ‘Squealer”. Deep fried doughnut, covered with maple glaze and real bacon bits. I know it can’t be good... More

My friend stopped by our hotel room with a dozen donuts of all varying kinds. I thought the squealer would be weird but it was delicious. The samoa was really good, but my favorite, of course I can't remember the name, was like a glazed round cruller. It was so light and almost eggy inside. My friend said they only... More

I love Ringo's! They are always friendly and their donuts are the best! It's ruined Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts for me.

Wow nothing better than those freakin donuts! I don't regret my wife forcing me to come there. Decore is fine and the atomospere is horrible at best but the food is the only saving grace which is why I give it 5 stars.

The testimony of the owner which is told in Joel Osteen's book shows what a determined person can do to reach their goals. Every donut is made with love!!! The staff includes the owner and one worker who works the counter. The small town feel with personable workers is a extra special touch.

Always stop at Ringo's when we are in Smithfield area ,the staff is super friendly and the donuts are always fresh and delicious. My wife loves the "squealer" and I like the cinnamon rolls but get there early because they sell out quick.If you are in the area you need to go to Ringo's ,You will not be disappointed

One of the most unique doughnut shops ever. They sell doughnuts... fresh, homemade, delicious doughnuts! Atmosphere is no frills, nothin' fancy, just good doughnuts at a reasonable price. Get the "squealer", a Smithfield specialty.

Kirk's doughnuts are just superb! The maple bacon,the blueberry cake doughnut with cream cheese and many other are just delicious. I had a bakery and I used his doughnuts there they sold out by the end of the day, no surprise. Bakery is now closed but I will continue to patronize Ringo's.
