Our son was coming in town to spend the night. I wanted to have something special for him for breakfast. I went to Howard's and bought some apple fritters. They were a real hit! Yummo! 👍🏼👍🏼😊

The service is always rough.. But the doughnuts make me not care in the least! Jeez.. The red velvet doughnut literally is the best doughnut I've ever tasted! I love it! Haven't had anything from Howard's I didn't love!

Good morning doughnuts when you get them fresh. Decent selection. I remember the recipe and service being to much better in the past when the original owner was alive.

Great donuts with friendly service! Go early fir best selection.,I have teens and wentvto get donuts at 11:00 and the selection was very slim. They are open til 2 but there is very little left after11:00. I prefer Howard's donuts over other chains. Cone try them out and support the locals.

I started eating Howard's Donuts about 15 years ago.. The quality of their donuts is second to none. No surprises here. So many different kinds to choose from, I usually go home with 4 to 5 different kinds. Great quality.

Pulled off the interstate for a quick breakfast, and almost went to the Dunkin Donuts next door. So glad we decided to try a locally owned establishment. The donuts are melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and the service was excellent. Yum!

A friend who once lived in the Memphis area told us to make sure we stopped at Howard's; the doughnuts were just the best, she said. Well, I've eaten a lot of doughnuts and these were certainly delicious. I really can't call them "the best" because I think the best doughnut is the one I'm eating at the time. But,... More

I havs visited this donut shop twice since my last review and was not disappointed. Not only are the donuts fresh the service was friendly and accurate. I found out on my last visit they accept all competitor's coupons. This helps when you are buying large amounts of donuts. The donuts are made fresh each morning. They have a variety... More
