“If eating this donuts is wrong, I don't want to be right”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Best donuts I have had. Tons of variety: pumpkin spice, german chocolate, toasted coconut etc. I stopped in for pick up but the location has a great old diner feel and I'd love to come back for a cup of coffee and some more donuts.

“Donuts are always good at Country Donuts”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This place blows Dunkin Donuts right out of the water. Which is why I don't understand why Trip advisor has the wrong picture of the restaurant on this webpage. That is definitely not Country Donuts, doesn't look a bit like that, and the Dunkin Donuts signage is really misleading. Anyway I have always had great, fresh donuts from Country Donuts and the staff is always friend and quick to help. Can't complain about this place at all, and no reason to go to the local Duncan Donuts when you have this place.

“Best Donuts Around”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

I love the donuts here. So many choices and so many seasonal donuts. A wonderful family run institution where my kids can watch them make donuts. And they love sitting at the counter too.

“Why is there a Dunkin Donut sign in this picture?”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

Original Country Donuts far exceeds DD! Fresh all the time, drive thru and you can still get peanut donuts!!
Also, there is a phone app to be alerted to special deals!
We went to the drive thru at 2:00 AM & the server was charming and the donuts still warm! YUMMY!
