The taste of the donuts we purchased were very good. We had a yeast, maple bar, twist, and chocolate cake. They were delicious. Dude's does not have a large selection or any exotic donuts.

Dude's has been around for 60 years I understand. I can see why! These are the absolute best maple bars you can eat! Really reasonable prices. Quick service even when the line is out the door.

These donuts just melt in your mouth Super light! I love their donut holes. No place to sit but I usually take these to the park or home to eat.

These are the best donuts I have ever had. It's a little hole in the wall donut shop that won't disappoint you.

My family has gone to this donut shop since I was a little kid. Always fresh and not overly greasy donuts. Must stop and try!
