This drive thru place for donuts has really nice servers at the window and they really know their donuts! But what sets Spunky apart is the freshness of their product.

We walked over to Spunky Dunkers on a friend's recommendation and thought the donuts were quite good. I refrained from getting a dozen, but the one I had, apple cider donut, was very good.

Spunky Dunkers is your classic donut shop. This isn't the fad shop you have seen on tv or in LA.. this is real donuts, real sugar dipped in real oil. It's pretty much your grandfathers go to donut and well worth the trip.

This is why you give up your diet if you are on one or get your fill of taste bud pleasure! They are always fresh and flavorful without that heavy greasy taste that some places have. Love these things. These girls do it right!
