I was told by a friend that I had to go to The Donut Shop and eat a donut for her. We got there about 9:30am on a Saturday and they had already sold out of some donuts. I got a small cinnamon roll (very good) and a filled donut--you tell them your choice of filling. I really wanted regular "cream" but it wasn't available so I got chocolate, which was almost like pudding (good but not great). My wife had a glazed donut (great!) and an apple fritter (very good). Overall we enjoyed the donuts.

The Donut Shop is hands down the best donut shop in the south. The donuts are mouth watering & the staff is very friendly! We've been coming here for years & drive many miles for these delicious donuts!

we had the filled sticks and the éclair. was ok. we also ordered the tamales and they were pretty good. I went there due to all the reviews ive read on the place and the donuts tasted pretty fresh but the building looked kinda dirty. nothing like looking over and seeing a cook smoke like the smoker behind him.

I'd seen raves about this place on the internet and wanted to take some tamales along to a friends reunion on the Gulf. I also picked up a couple of donuts. They were fresh and had that little bit of old fashioned crunch on the outside--just about perfect. The tamales lasted about five minutes. Everybody loved them and several said they were the best they'd ever had.

My wife and I decided to share a burger, so I decided it would be a double meat burger. The double meat was huge and a single would have been more than enough. We shared fries and then each bought a pastry. The apple fritter was excellent. Prices are very reasonable.
