Best homemade doughnuts in the outer banks area. I can see why people line up to get them. Great and friendly staff and good selection and variety. Doughnuts were warm and cake like tasting. Favorite for this area.

Thus was a smaller location, but still ran smooth and handled the vrowing line quickly. A little pricey, but worth it

We all love Duck Donuts! It is a must when we come to OBX! Calories don't count at the OBX?! I haven't had a flavor I haven't loved.

When we came in, we were confused not to see trays of donuts, but then realized they were not made until you'd decided exactly what you wanted (frosting, glaze, sugared, etc). So, we made our selection and watched as our donuts were fried, then frosted and given to us while warm. Heaven!

These are the best donuts you will probably ever have the opportunity to eat. In the Outer Banks of North Carolina (OBX) there are at least 3 locations. One, right across the street, walking distance, from the Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk; one to the north at Osprey Landing in Duck NC; and one at "Milepost 8" in Kill... More

If you've never had a Duck Donut you are totally missing out! Try the maple glaze with bacon.... amazing. I even love them plain.
