My family goes here 1-2 times a month. The donuts are awesome. The richest buttercream icing ever! The caramel and bacon donut is perfect. But the real gem is the fried chicken biscuit (with gravy)! Highly recommended local place.

The chocolate iced doughnuts here are delicious. The only disappointment was that one of my children ordered the pancakes as well as an orange juice from the menu, only to be informed that they did not have either item.
