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.
