Okay, we didn't get the most imaginative donut (Sugar and Spice) here but it was still pretty delicious and more than enough for two! The service was friendly and the variety was amazing. I would definitely come back to try some of the fancier concoctions!

I always bring out-of-town friends here. Unique place with amazing food. My personal favorites are the Country Clucker or the El Camino. Leave your diet at home!

Too expensive for quality of food. The sandwich I had too much bread and meat lacked flavor. Service was also slow.

Also, gordo means fat man in Spanish... which is what anyone will turn into if they eat their donuts on a regular basis!

You should definitely go here with friends so you can order all the donuts you want and share them. They have so many delicious options for fruit lovers, chocolate lovers, etc. I recommend going at night when it's cooler so you can sit outside and enjoy the ambiance.

We did a very quick trip to Austin and randomly drove by the Gourdough's truck on our way into town. We were heading to lunch, so it was painful not to stop, but we held off. And then randomly we turned a corner as we were heading back to the airport and there it was again! Taking this as a... More

The heavenly hash was simply.....heavenly! Went here with a large group of friends and we each ordered different doughnuts so we could sample the variety. All were sinfully delicious!

Its a must to stop by the Gourdough's food truck in Austin. The menu is great but very rich food. The clucking chicken donut is amazing! We ordered the Nutty Valentine which was covered in Nutella. It's great food!

If you love food and being out of your comfort zone this is a great place to eat at when in Austin. A friend recommended it and I thought a doughnut hamburger would be gross and something I would ever eat. I was so wrong! The classic "Mary Jane" hamburger would be great for starters and the chips are good... More

Don't go in this restaurant thinking you will pick up a dozen doughnuts and go home. There are so many (unusual) ideas of things to put on a doughnut I can't even list them. Our table ordered everything from Mexican food to hamburgers to breakfast and underneath it al.......a huge doughnut! A must try and I bet you will go... More
