I can remember the times that my daddy would take my brother and I get donuts on a Saturday morning. I miss the old building where it was housed. It is now in a new building and back into full swing of things. They still do it all the oldfashioned way, from the cash register to the way they write your ticket.

I have searched the world over, and Dudes Donuts are the best I have ever found. I have made trips to Joplin (40 miles) just to get a maple bar and a glazed donut. LOVE THEM!

The pendergraft family has owned dude's donuts since the 60s or earlier. It was literally vaporized during the tornado, along with dozens of other small businesses, and after a whole lot of soul searching, some members decided to rebuild. The donuts are a local legend.

Light and airy glazed donuts cooked with love by the owners. What more could you ask for. The owners look like grandma and grandpa and the donuts taste just like I remember when I was a kid. Beautiful!
