Unfortunately this great donut shop closed permanently on Dec. 7, 2021. They added a lot to downtown Marion. Their Maple Cruch Donuts were fantastic and will be missed by their many frequent customers.

I suggest that you order your doughnuts in advance. By the time we get there from out of town the doughnuts are long gone. Now I know they don't want to be stuck with unsold doughnuts, but at 11:00 am they shouldn't be out. This...was the 5th time that we have been disappointed.More

This is the best place to get donuts. BOBS IS WHERE IT'S AT. They are the most famous feature in this little no where town for a good reason! I don't know why Dunkin bothered coming around here, they're disgusting comparatively.

Makayla was super helpful, and the peanut butter chip she recommended was a Winner! Can’t wait to come back to try other yummy flavors!

We were driving from Black Mountain to Linville Falls and drive past this shop. We turned around and we were so glad we did! My wife had a chocolate with sprinkles and I had the most delicious cinnamon roll ever, that was humongous!!! The lady...serving us could not have been sweeter! Don’t you dare roll your eyes at her!!!More

Arrived into Marion right at their closing time. They young lady there was fantastic. We actually purchased the remaining doughnuts and (kid u not) they tasted like they had just been made. Wonderful experience! Lemon filled and blueberry filled were large, soft and a lot...of filling in each.More

My nephew & I were coming back from an adventure out at Linville Gorge and we’re driving through Marion, and decided to check out Mr Bob’s and it was so worth the little detour! Fresh. Incredible flavor. Friendly employees. The perfect combo!

We couldn’t not stop at Mr. Bob’s. The Boston Creme and glazed doughnuts were tasty. Shop was tiny, service was super.

If you're in the area or just need a pot stop off highway 40, stop by Bob's the donuts and pastries are fresh and delicous and easy on the wallet! The owners are super sweet and take the time to tell stories and char with...a smile. We tried their giant "Apple Ugly" which was absolutely soft and gooey and delicious! Their cinnamon roll was chock full of sweet cinnamon and their pistachio donut was a sweet surprise. We wish we had a place like this in our neighborhood back in Florida.More

I love these donuts! They beat all brands with their large freshly made donuts of any variety you could wish for! They also have great danishes, etc. A must stop if in the area.

My husband and I both said these are the best donuts we’ve ever had! And I can tell you I’ve had ALOT of donuts in my life. The pastry cream inside the chocolate covered donut is my husband’s favorite and the white cream filled is...my favorite. I don’t know how they manage to get the donuts crispy on the outside and so soft on the inside!More

I was traveling 40 West to meet my daughter to exchange vehicles as her car had been in the shop. She lives in the Western Carolina area and had to travel 40 East. We picked the Old Fort exit for a convenient meeting place. We...stumbled upon Mr. Bob's Donuts by accident and I am so grateful we did! I ordered several of the chocolate-iced, white cream-filled donuts. Absolutely the best I've ever had! And Lord knows I've had my share of chocolate-iced, white cream filled donuts in my lifetime. Thank goodness, we occasionally travel 40. We will definitely be stopping here again!More

Mr. Bob’s is awesome! They have fresh donuts made in house with delicious homemade fillings! The cream cheese donut is my personal favorite! They also have bagels, apple uglies, coffee, and cinnamon rolls! They’re a definite stop if you’re in Marion.

I stopped in the Old Fort location and left scratching my head over the amount I paid for the 2 donuts. The only thing that made sense was that my chocolate glazed donuts are charged as a filled donut. Later, I stopped at the Marion...location and the same thing happened. The menu states glazed are one price and filled are another price. Obviously, only the plain donut is considered glazed.More
