Extremely long wait on a Friday. It was also very crowded; however, our waitress was very friendly and the food was worth the wait. Try the Salty Balls or the Black Betty!!! Ohhhh my goodness!

I took my kids here for dessert after having tacos next door. We ordered the cherry bomb and it was to die for! Save room, because it's pretty good sized too. Worth every calorie.

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!
