“Dirty Dan's Donuts - the best around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Dan's donuts are the best, especially when they're warm or hot. Be prepared to stand in a line if you go at 1am. The line can be a 1/2 block long. But they are worth the wait. Took my 7 yr. old grandson for his inaugural visit......he was excited having the experience and in heaven! In short, GO!

“Dan's is the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

To be fair, the official name is Dan's Variety Bakery. However it's locally known as Dirty Dan's. Anyway, they're the best doughnuts that exist. I don't eat doughnuts anymore, unless their from Dan's.

“Ignore the name - LOVE the donuts.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

This is the "go to" place in Kokomo for donuts. Whenever you need donuts - 1 or several dozen, Dan't can't be beat.

“Must visit when in Kokomo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Best donuts anywhere! The name is really Dan's Variety Bakery but to locals, it's "Dirty Dan's". Donuts at some places can be dry or taste like oil. Not here! Dan's has the freshest, most flavorful donuts you'll ever eat. When they open at 1 a.m., it's not unusual to find a line that stretches across the parking lot. Don't wait too late in the morning to stop in because they'll be picked over, but everything is good so don't walk away. And you can't beat the price. Don't miss it!
