Big doughnuts! Lots of different choices. If you go right after dark be prepared to wait in line, but the wait is worth it.

I was kind of freaked out when I saw the menu and everything was served on a doughnut. We entered the restaurant blindly, not knowing what it was about. What a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious. I ordered the chicken pesto sandwich served between two doughnuts and loved It! We had the coconut doughnut holes for dessert and we... More

So glad we found this place. We almost passed on this one as it was over 100 outside and we'd just spent a disappointing hour on SoCo. My wife knew how much I wanted to try it after reading the reviews and insisted. Sooooooo good. The doughnut on the bottom was still hot and crisp and the coconut and chocolate... More

This is the best place for desserts. They've ruined donuts for me from anywhere else. Highly recommend the ODB- Coconut amazingness.

We stumbled here by accident. We were looking for something sweet in the middle of the day and I saw the sign that looked like a donut and boy are we glad we went. A funky little place. The food is prepared in an airstream in the entry way and there is seating in the bar/restaurant area. The burger and... More

If you've never eaten from a food truck, I recommend Gourdoughs to be in your top five while visiting or vacationing in Austin! They add a very unique twist on donuts! I recommend the "Mother Clucker" if your a fan of chicken strips or the "Porkey's" if you enjoy bacon and jalapeños!

I've seen pictures on social media of Gourdough's donuts, but had never made it by on our trips to Austin. We walked Zilker park and waited over an hour for the Gourdough's food truck to open afterward. WORTH THE WAIT!!! Not kidding, these were the best donuts I've ever eaten. I thought maybe all of the buzz was about the... More

So I always stop here while in Austin or driving by. This time I tried something different and I didn't enjoy it as much as my usual. I tried blue balls and I usually always stick to I'm puddin! Blue balls was a rip off. They had like 6 balls....it felt small with donuts and a lot of Blueberry sauce.... More
