“Chuck's all the way,”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Maple bars just melt away.... Yummy! Get to get there early as they close when they sell out... I have hooked so many at work it's crazy. My second choice are the glazed old fashioned donuts. Now if you eat these later on the day... Microwave to warm them - only 6 seconds! Literally melts in your mouth!

“Donut runs with my 7 year old”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Every once in a while someone in the house wakes up and says ... "Donut run". That means Chuck's! :) The icing on the maple bars is a DREAM. It is a treat worth every 'point' ... once in a while!

“My favorite donut.”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

This place is dangerously good - and dangerously close to me! We go there at least once a month, and I have to say it is my favorite donut. It's not flashy and sponsoring the Seahawks or at Starbucks like Top Pot, it's just darn good. I HIGHLY recommend you try the maple bar (or chocolate bar). They do more of a whipped frosting than the sugary glaze, and it's amazing how good it is. And how quickly the donut disappears. My other favorite is the apple fritter. They aren't as doughy as some places, they are friend well, crispy, and they put a lot of apple chunks in them. Always good. In general, they do not have a bad donut.

“Absolutely the best doughnuts ever!”
Reviewed February 28, 2011

I can't even explain how good their doughnuts are... just that I compare everyone else's to them! If you haven't tried their doughnuts, well, you don't know what you are missing. And maybe that is a good thing. Because doughnuts are not the same anymore unless they are Chuck's.

“Incredible in Renton!”
Reviewed December 17, 2008

I have been frequenting Chuck's since Chuck (Charlie) was still alive-over 30 years. Even with the new owners they are still fabulous-the original recipes are used. If you want the fluffiest, best tasting donuts ever-go there. The Maple Bars are done with a maple frosting (not sugary glaze) that is absolutely melt in your mouth. The Apple fritters are the best too! They can be busy on work days, but well worth the wait in line. Keep them busy!
