My husband and I decided to stop by Gourdough's on our last night in Austin, because of the great reviews. We didn't get anything crazy, I got the one with strawberries and OMG! Loaded with fresh strawberries and sweet cream, delicious! Parking was a bit of a challenge, we drove around a few too many times, all the allowable nearby... More

If for no other reason than to say you had one, stop at Gourdough's and grab your favorite crazy doughnut. I prefer Heavenly Hash myself, but there are plenty of options to choose from. This is one place you will tell your friends about afterward.

Stopped by late Sunday night for a midnight snack. The menu did not disappoint, the donuts are huge, warm, sweet with crispy edges. Many to choose from so go hungry! The atmosphere is nice, decorated with old windows and doors and the food truck inside is just super cool! Looking forward to my next visit!

After some dinner I found myself walking down to this place for a little late night snack. There's usually a bit of a wait but it'll be worth it. It's a food truck and they have a handful of picnic tables to sit and enjoy your donut... or get it to go. The night I was here the girl working... More

You have NEVER seen doughnuts like these. Had trouble finding a place to park and the place was crowded but we were seated immediately and the custom order came quickly. Can't review the food because we only stopped in for dessert but the doughnuts were meals! HUGE! Amazingly different flavor combinations. Don't go crazy trying something you probably won't like-...

Wow. Best donuts ever. Ate at the location near the trailer park area paralell to soco area. Not sure I'd really call them donuts, they have so many other tasty treats all over them. Had the funky monkey or something sounding like that, warm bananas, big portions, couldn't finish it. Wife got the heath bar one, crunchy and sweet, neither... More

I was with a group of co-workers and wouldn't have chosen the place on my own but it offers a very unique menu whereby every menu item is either served on or with a doughnut (some sweet, some savory). I'm not a doughnut fan but enjoyed the creative menu.

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
