“Good donuts, bring cash and be prepared to wait”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

These donuts were well worth the rainy wait in line! I suggest sticking to the original glazed donuts.

“Donuts to Remember Forever”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

They always have fresh delectable donuts-yum! In all my visits I have NEVER received product that was less than wonderful. The only downside are the long lines which mercifully move fast!!!

“Best Glazed Donut Anywhere!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

I am an Indy native bu thave lived all over, including east coast with Dunkin Donuts, and places with Krispy Kreme, etc. Longs has the BEST glazed yeast donuts! Very sweet but so delicious and addictive. The rest of their stuff is great too, but why have anything but the glazed? They only accept cash and they always have a line, so plan ahead, but they are definitely worth a detour to have a donut or a dozen or two :) You can call ahead and avoid the long line.

“Order them hot”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We visited the speedway and made a stop here on the way back to Indianapolis on the recommendation of the cab driver.

Order the doughnuts hot! They are sugary delight. The place is nothing to look at but the doughnuts clearly have some pull because the store and the street were busy even in the middle of the afternoon.

Be warned - more than one is tempting but will likely result in sugary doom.

When we arrived back at the hotel with a plain white box the doorman asked "are those Longs doughnuts - can I have one?"

That's about as good as it gets I reckon.

“Good but not outstanding”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

After reading all of the great reviews I was expecting a bit more from Long's. Yes, the donuts were fresh and tasty but not the best I have ever had. I prefer a lighter donut and these were a bit heavy. The service was very friendly and the line moved quickly.
