“Great donuts”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Great place though they seem to run out of various donuts fairly quickly. This becomes very frustrating when using the drive thru. Still great food though.

“Fantastic and fresh…and just a little deliciously greasy”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic donuts. Always fresh. I highly recommend asking for the cream cheese filled donut. Bear claws and apple fritters are both great, alas my waistline will not tolerate more than a couple of times a year...but NOT for lack of wanting it!!

“Great Donuts”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Franks Donuts are one of my favorites in the area. We usually get the donut holes which come a dozen to a bag for about a buck and they are usually still warm. The thing about Franks is that their donuts are so fresh and light. I've never gotten a donut there that hasn't tasted fresh. Their service is always attentive and pleasant and the prices are very reasonable.

“Best doughnut ever!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I love this place. Ok ok so it's in an old pizza but building.... Don't let it fool you- truly the best doughnut I've eaten. Both times I have went in it's been late in the evening and they taste like they were just made?! So good. They even make bday cakes which I will be ordering as well. Franks obviously knows what it's doing. I will be a repeat offender!

“new location on South Broadway”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

they now have a drive-thru & stay open longer than they did at their old location. $7 for a dozen of pillowy soft yeast donuts, orig glazed or several other flavors. Also carry specialties too. Love this locally owned place!!
