“The Famous Round Rock (Orange Colored) Doughnuts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The doughnuts are orange in color, but have no orange flavoring at the old Lone Star Bakery in Round Rock now know has Round Rock Doughnuts. The rumor is that the batter is so rich with eggs that it gives it the orange color. Many think that the there is food coloring added in support of the University of Texas in neighboring Austin, but this is not true. The bakery has been in open for 87 years and the original bakery burned down a few years ago. The rebuilt version provides the best glazed doughnut found anywhere and a very efficient system of satisfying their customers with quick service. An order of the dozen doughnuts set us back a measly $5.99 and were still warm from the kitchen. Forget the calories and enjoy!

“Best Donut ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I'm not a donut person but I was visiting friends and they decided we needed to have a Round Rock Donut. Wow the best ever. Parking is difficult because so many people want their donuts but they do have a drive through. Won't tell you how many I ate.

“BEST DONUTS EVER.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

THE BEST donuts in the world. The donuts MELT in your mouth. So delicious and don't leave you feeling bloated! The glaze is decadent. The donuts are such a fun color too! Such a gem in Round Rock. A MUST to visit, even coming from a resident!

They are on the travel channel a lot for a reason. They truly do make some of the best donuts around.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Our last stop in Texas before heading home. Busy place but it went fast and you can go in or drive thru. Just the right amount to chose from. Variety of beverages. We also got cookies for the drive home to mn.
