I grew up eating Shipley donuts, so every time I am in Texas City I get some. Reminds me of my dad getting donuts early in the morning for breakfast. Just love them. The filled one are my favority along with the plain glazed.

All the donuts and kolache's. Been eating here and using the drive thru since 1991. Never had anything but great stuff and wonderful service. The line gets kind of long, so be prepared for a little wait during peak hours. You'll love it though.

Somebody said this donuts taste like store bought? Seriously? I guess you just can not taste the stuff. Shipley donuts are actually little bit too sweet for me but it is so good that I can not pass in the morning. Especially with black coffee, OMG!!

Quite disappointed as they rave about Shipley here in Texas. Just a basic grocery bakery donut to me but I've had Krispy Kreme for years so there's not comparing. Donald donuts were better.

Had Shipley's all my life. I remember we always had them at our sleep overs. Now I am 60 and still love these. The recipe cannot be beat.
