We were so excited to try this place after reading all of the reviews. We went to their food truck location and ordered two different things. The donuts were fresh and unique but wow... I would have rather just eaten breakfast tacos at the truck next door. The donuts were so greasy and the flavors were off (we got donuts... More

Having just been told that I need to watch my cholesterol this was probably the worst place in the world to come. However, having enjoyed bacon and maple, cinnamon, and ham with cheese and jalapeño donuts at 2:30am I cannot say anything negative. I was told they would change my mind on the awfulness of donuts and the fans were... More

I ordered the Blue Balls (blueberry filling with blue icing) - the doughnuts were amazing. Warm, small, bite size doughnuts (about the same size as Dunkin Donuts' munchkins) drenched in blueberry sauce. I didn't really taste/notice the blueberry filling inside the doughnuts, but it didn't really matter. Doughnuts are a bit pricey (it was a little under six dollars), but... More

We bought three of these, three HUGE, sloppy, messy doughnuts. You need a fork, and you need to split one of these unless you like to eat A LOT! The base is a typical mass of fried dough - more like a funnel cake in flavor, but fat like a glazed donut. They are smothered in toppings. We had almond... More

We actually went back a few times! Everything we tried was delicious but their version of chicken and waffles is the best I've ever had! The place also has a lot of ambiance and is a great place to grab a drink with friends!

My husband and I decided to stop by Gourdough's on our last night in Austin, because of the great reviews. We didn't get anything crazy, I got the one with strawberries and OMG! Loaded with fresh strawberries and sweet cream, delicious! Parking was a bit of a challenge, we drove around a few too many times, all the allowable nearby... More

If for no other reason than to say you had one, stop at Gourdough's and grab your favorite crazy doughnut. I prefer Heavenly Hash myself, but there are plenty of options to choose from. This is one place you will tell your friends about afterward.
