These donuts are amazing. I never knew donuts could be so light and airy. Buttermilk, maple glazed, chocolate with nuts. I wish I could try them all. I fell in love with homemade donuts now. These donuts are not greasy. I enjoyed every bite.

I know it's just a donut but most are bigger than normal, I made myself sick because I chose the apple fritter and ate the whole thing but it sure was good, many choices - hard to make decision - they all looked delicious

I love Ferrell"s because they make a maple bismark that is to die for. I'm allergic to chocolate and it's not easy finding a filled doughnut without chocolate on it. The service is always great and the doughnuts and sandwiches and top notch
