Over here visiting my family and they took me to Bill's. I have to say they are the greatest donuts I have ever tasted here or back in England!!!

There is a reason that the line is always there. These are the best donuts in Ohio. This is a Centerville staple and everyone knows them as "Bills" you mention just that and all know them on a first name basis. The place is always busy and always worth the wait.

If you are ever in the Dayton Ohio area you have to go to Bill's Donuts in Centerville Ohio. They are simply the best and the lines even late Saturday night are testimonials to this fact. Everyone loves them!!! Wouldn't look like the place to be necessarily but service is as good as the Donuts and they have quite a... More

This is just an iconic donut shop you just can't miss! Open 24 hours (how often nowadays is that?) The donuts are good, fresh, very reasonable. When it's a Saturday afternoon, and there is a line of at least a dozen people, with folk all around drinking coffee and just hanging out, you know you have a hit. Less than... More

I have been eating at Bill's since 1975! It was always a family treat to go. Just flew in for a wedding and had to get a glazed pretzel for old times sake. Yummy!

My first visit to Bill's Donut Shop was in the 70's. Moved away, came back for a visit, nothing's changed. They still have the sweetest and tastiest donuts and other confections anywhere and combine that with a cup of coffee and the reasonable prices and it's a must stop for travelers.

Can't go wrong with anything from this State and National icon. Everything is extremely good especially the yeast twist and cinnamon twist - they melt in your mouth.

Relatives from Savannah made Bill's one of their MANDATORY stops to pick up several dozen donuts to return home with and to drop some off to family in Cincinnati. This place has caused an addiction to everyone and you can't beat the family atmosphere of the place. What is not to love?

A well worn path leads to this great shop making the best of doughy treats. Very ready yet friendly people keep the steady follow of traffic inside. Not a lot of fancy here but the classics are done to perfection.

If the donuts themselves don't promote the business, the line wrapping around the building on regular basis surely does! These donuts are everything you could want from a home-town "mom and pop" donut shop. They have tons of flavors to choose from. Bill's is definitely a guilty pleasure and a must have for family who comes in from out of... More
