Served hot with whatever you want on them. DELICIOUS! See my review go the other OBX duck donuts. Just as good. Not many places that will make your donut fresh and just how you want it. YUM!

We took a lovely drive to Duck on a Sunday morning to get these donuts I've heard so much about. It was worth the drive! The donuts are all the same, but it's the toppings that make them so unique. We ordered a dozen including maple bacon, chocolate coconut, and peanut butter. Yum!!

Duck donuts are so good! I think they're made from a cake batter, but you can personalize what toppings you want. I always get bare, cinnamon sugar, powered, or chocolate. YUM

Custom nade donuts while you wait. The donuts have so many flavor combinations! They will also accommodate people with food allergies, just let them know.

I'm not a big donut eater (but my kids want to be), but the concept is so fun- "design your own donut" from a set selection of glazes, toppings, and drizzles. They make the cake donut first so it's warm and has a bit of a crunch. We went to the one in Kitty Hawk/kill devil hills. No place to... More

A visit to Duck Donuts is worth the experience. The timing of your visit, will determine if it is worth your wait. There are hundreds of possible combinations for each donut you order.

We come to the Outer Banks often and Duck Donuts never disappoint. They prepare them in front of you and are just delicious. Just eat them within a few hours; they don't keep well, but that's usually not a problem!

You have to try this place when you're in town. Sadly, we can only get these when on vacation in the OBX. These are hands down the best donuts my wife and I have ever had. They fry them fresh right in front of you so they're always piping hot and there's nothing like one of these fresh out of... More

I walked over to Duck donuts from my hotel for breakfast. They had delicious exotic blends of coffee available. I had a cinnamon sugar donut and a bacon egg and cheese breakfast bagel. The breakfast sandwich was superb. The bagel was fresh and chewy on the outside, tender inside, with the proper bagel slickness outside. The donut is made while... More
