I know many who rave about Carol Lee's, and I think the difference between their view and my own likely comes down to a difference in whether we each prefer butter-flavored or shortening-flavored doughnuts. I'd you love the latter run to Carol Lee's, but make...More

Best place ever for donuts. Beats out Dunkin, Crispy Cream, WAWA, Duck hands down. Great variety of donuts. Cinnamon Roll, Maple, Powdered Sugar and White Delight are my Favorites

Cheap, tasty and classic looking donuts. They have lots of different kinds (cake/fritters/filled/glazed etc.) Used to only take cash, but recently added the ability to take card. Also have coffee. A Blacksburg must.

Crazy cheap ~80 cents a piece and every flavor we tried was delicious. We were in Blacksburg for 3 days and went twice. Then took a half dozen home.

All the donuts are made fresh everyday right there on the property. You have to get there early to get them because when they sell out they close. Great tailgating dessert.

I've been going to Carol Lee's for over 20 years. They have the best doughnuts around. They also make amazing cakes. They did my wedding cake which everyone loved. The staff is friendly. If you visit Blacksburg you must get doughnuts from them.

The blueberry cake donuts are a must! I can't travel through Blacksburg without stopping here and picking up a dozen!

I'm not sure about gluten free, but it may be worth one day of gluten trying these donuts!! :)
