The website says these are made from scratch. I loved the cake donuts - powdered, devils food, blueberry, old fashioned, and a glazed yeast. 5 for 4, $4.20 for basic donuts. Very, very good.

This is a great place to get donuts when on the campus of The Ohio State University. They have other food items but I only tried the donuts. It's well worth the try.

Donuts are fantastic and you can pick them up 24/7! Also serve savory eats including Gyros and other sandwiches!

My rule about donuts is that just because you buy it, you don't have to eat the whole thing. So I took advantage of the "buy four get one free!" offer. I'd definitely go back for the chocolate donut, buttermilk donut, and the apple fritter. Those are the donuts you want.

Apple fritters, vanilla cream-filled with powdered sugar, buckeye (choc-pb) and bacon doughnuts. Glazed twists and an assortment of cake doughnuts. Yum! I think they also have lunch sandwiches and combos, but I'm all about the doughnuts.

Line was out the door but moved quickly. We ordered 4 doughnuts and got a 5th free, but that special was only good on 4 doughnuts not more. They had a good selection of doughnut flavors, but were sold out of some we wanted.

Went here late a night and it was packed. Line out the door. The employees are decently friendly. You will see some interesting characters around the area, especially if you go at night. I'd recommend getting at least a half-dozen. 2 buckeye donuts for sure and a mix of the others! GO BUCKS

Cruising High Street in Columbus, Ohio we found BUCKEYE DONUTS , a veritable institution with timeless appeal and a compact seating area ( we got to go orders) and the BEST donuts I have found over 14 years in the Ohio River Valley region. The service is express. The donut varieties include classic staples and creative batches like the Red... More
