We love going to back door donuts. My daughters stand in line at 7:00 pm when they first start selling them. We get the glazed chocolate cake donuts and they go well with coffee, milk, or Ben & Bills ice cream.

These donuts are worth the wait! They serve donuts in the back of the store from 7 PM to 1 AM. Be patient it will be worth it.

During our second high school girls trip (classes of 77 and 78) in 2 years you bet we ended more than a couple of nights at Back Door Donuts (and then just ran more the next day). The fresh hot fried apple fritters are outrageously...More
