We found this trailer by accident but I am so glad we stopped. The choice was mind-blowing, I would never have put some of the combinations together but they were so good. If you value your waist line don't stop here but if you want to give your taste buds one of the best experiences of your life you have... More

This place is a must to visit if you are ever in Austin. They have a wide selection to choose from. I had a hard time choosing between getting a savory donut or going the sweet route. I got the Flying Pig, which was a maple frosted donut with bacon on top. My boyfriend got the Mother Clucker, which is... More

We happened upon Gourdough's by searching for donuts near us in Austin, and I'm really happy they showed up in my results. During our three days in Austin, we ate Gourdough's two different mornings. The selection of donuts is very creative with choices such as Heavenly Hash (brownie batter, chocolate syrup, marshmallow cream) and Son of a Peach (peach pie... More

Visited this place at 8am in the morning. I absolutely loved their doughnut. Both my husband and I could not finish our doughnuts. We each got one, they are huge. They were so delicious!

This place is amazing.. when they're on top of their game. Which they are for the most part but they seem to be understaffed and I never see the same employees, so makes me wonder how often they have to train new ppl. Still I love it and go back every chance I get.

Being a vegetarian, I was hesitant to go to Gourdough's for dinner. And then I tagged along thinking I will just have dessert. Little did I know that was the best decision I made that night. I had one of the best veggie burger (donut?) and the Funky Monkey for dessert. And that wasn't the best part..it was the live... More

Walked a good 30 mins on a hot summer day to this food truck, totally worth it! They have a huge menu and I don't know where to start so I asked the staff for recommendations. She said the shortcake is popular. Doughnuts with cream cheese frosting on top and also fresh sliced strawberries. Price was average,paid $5 something for... More

Run, do not walk to this place! The food is incredible and the service is stellar. Probably the best brunch I ever had! Simultaneously family friendly & cool. LOVE

Wow is all I can say about this place. Doughnut sandwiches. WOW! We tried to go at peak dinner time (very crowded). Came back after a couple of drinks elsewhere and got a couple of sandwiches and all I could say was OH MY GOOOODDDDD!!!!! Very delicious, but instant regret, shame, dirty feeling (in a good way). This is one... More

I got a maple bacon donut! It was so freaking delicious, but so bad for you T T I recommend having a sparkling mineral water to wash down all the salty/sweetness.
