This place has built up a tremendously epic reputation for having the best donuts in town. After having them myself, I'm a convert. I warn anyone to call their order ahead; donuts are baked as early as 2 a.m. and the quick sellout is unreal. I love their apple fritters. I want a dozen of them if ever get stranded on some remote island. The dough from any donut of theirs melts in my mouth with its heavenly, spongy texture. The place itself is hardly ever crowded; the parking lot is way busier from nonstop orders being picked up. By 8 a.m. the display case looks as if it's been ransacked by Apache bandits. Great prices and value. ORDER AHEAD!

Read about it online & had to go there! Got there at about 11:00 am and they were almost all sold out. Scored some applesauce donuts which were great, but really wanted apple fritters. They open at 1:00 and people line up to the back of the parking lot to get them fresh. You can call ahead, and next time we will for sure! Call the day before if possible to make sure you get them!

We went to Dirty Dan's based upon the reviews on Tripadvisor, absolutely awesome. We were there at about 8am and there were 8 apple sauce donuts available, we bought the last 3 they had and they were sooooooo good! The lady there was very nice and gave us a sheet with all of their donuts listed and to call ahead next time for pickup. If we are in the area again, we will most definately do that. Cute little place in a residential area, so glad that we gtried it.

This place has, hands down, the best doughnuts in central indiana. A Kokomo tradition is to be at Dan's when they open at 1 am. You know it's good when people wait 20 min. or more in the cold of winter for fresh from the oven doughnuts. Dans isn't the easiest to find if your not from the area, but well worth the search. Try the pecan rolls served on tues and fri. Oh my!!!
