This place has so many flavors to choose from on donuts and pastries. They are always fresh and yummy!! The employees are always friendly and willing to explain the different flavors.

The best doughnut shop in kansas city. Plenty of options and willing to fill any doughnut to your liking. Monster size cupcakes. And they are wrestling fans. What more could you ask for.

With good donuts, being open lots of hours, and located just off a busy road this place gets diversified crowd wiping out their cases. It's close to 2 casino hotels, a hospital, a bank, late night and junk food restaurants, and a couple cheap hotels. No they are not the best donuts you will ever find. They are also a... More

My wife and I showed up one day, around noon, and found the donut supply depleted! This was not a bad thing. We were fortunate enough to get old fashioned donuts fresh out of the grease, and slathered in glaze! One of the best things I've ever tasted, no hyperbole! Had a long john filled with homemade whipped cream, too.... More

I didn't care for the donuts and cupcakes were dry and overpriced. I didn't like there selection. - used to work in an excellent bakery in Des Moines, Iowa, no comparison.

Yummy doughnuts. Not much difference than any other donut shop except maybe the staff is nicer with smiles. One disappointment would be donuts get too hard to eat later in the day. Not fresh after few hours. too bad. Oh well I can solve that. Just eat all of them when you buy them.

Donut King is a traditional doughnut shop. These type of shops seem to be disappearing. They have two large glass cases full of top quality product. You can easily see the product and they have signs attached to each flavor. They also have a case of gourmet cupcakes. Every doughnut I've tried has been top quality. The are not like... More

Best Donuts in Kansas City by far and yes I know about that other guys place. Get there before 11 AM when they run out. Very clean establishment in North Kansas City. Carry them out by the sack or eat at the counter. Milk, coffee, juices available. Worth a drive north of the river- they are that good. Best kept... More

This is the second time we have been here within 2 years (we're from out of state) and when we came in this time it was later at night. Best thing is they are open late and they even have a drive through. This time they had even more flavors and varieties this time. Red velvet is a MUST! It... More
