Yes, this is a calorie packed meal but its uniqueness is a must have! It's like having dinner and dessert at the same damn time. The donuts aren't sweet at all but you can lather it down with honey butter for glaze and the chicken strip was super moist and flavorful. My friends and I all passed out from having... More

Everything you expect from a classic American donut - big, fat, greasy (not that easy to digest for your average European stomach :). Big selection of tastes and combinations though.

So hard to make a choice with the scrumptious selections! I was not disappointed with my sweet treat! However, my personal performance could've been better (I couldn't finish it; but leftovers were yum!).

I we went to the food truck in South Congress. I can't wait to live in Austin so I can eat these doughnuts all the time 😍 Seriously the best thing I ate the entire trip.

Very unique combinations for donuts. It reminds us of a donut place in New Orleans that we love. We had the fat Elvis & the cherry bombs. The Elvis had a ton of bacon & the cherry bombs were amazing!

All of these donuts are so good they make you want to go nuts! Lame... I know! But these entrees are amazing I love their burgers (especially the Ron Burgundy) also I love the cream corn chicken! I would have though that Donuts could not be apart of entrees but they tasteful and I'm stuffed after every visit!

Gordough's has been one of my Austin favorites from my first visit four years ago. We now drop in regularly. Brunch is amazing and the regular menu is just as tasty. Favorite is the chicken fried chicken and the flying pig( maple and bacon doughnut). The staff is always friendly especially the bartender who tracked my down vest after leaving... More

Gordoughs has a very Austin vibe, with a unique menu with tons of flavor! Their meals are served on or with a doughnut! Not all donoughts are sweet don't worry, but the food is fantastic!

Words cannot express the outrages deliciousness this food truck has to offer. Anytime family visits, from out of town, we make a least one visit to the Gourdough's food truck. We buy about 5 different variety of their donuts and have a sharing party. (We usually take our order to go). Be prepared for slow service, but they are courteous,... More
