If this is your first time, be prepared to wait in line. However, the line moves fairly quickly so do not be discouraged. It'll be well worth your wait. The donuts are absolutely delicious, and you can see the gals preparing them as your waiting in line. They have all kinds of different flavors to meet your tastes. Chocolate, boston... More

The frosting is very light tasting and delicious. I got the maple bacon donut with real bacon sprinkle topping.

I was intimidated by the long line but not to worry as it moves quickly plus it is fun watching them make the donuts. There is not a donut anywhere that comes close to this. Not only do they make them fresh - they are still warm when you get them but the dough is the perfect blend of moistness... More

Amazing donuts made fresh right in front of you! Don't let the wait scare you off, it can be a 20-40min line (that wraps around the bakery). It moves fast especially when you talk to the people on the sides of you. Made the mistake of only getting 6 when I should have gotten 60! Will def go back next... More

Let me start by saying that I am generally not a doughnut lover, but Beiler's has swung me over to the 'dark side'. I was in town for a convention and was looking for a quick and easy treat. I was ready to walk on by when a woman in line grabbed my arm and asked me whether she should... More

Get in line and have a donut! Chocolate iced is fantastic. Hardest thing is deciding what variety to choose!!

If you are there on a weekend, the line that goes all the way around the counter and further is a 60 to 90 minute wait. Nice doughnuts - but its basically dough with a ton of sugar on top--and its not worth that type of wait. BETTER IDEA: Go across the aisle to Beiler's larger main bakery and get... More

Long line, but moved quickly. Nice variety and service was pleasant. Nothing special, except for one or two exotic flavors. We have several Amish markets in Maryland and the donuts taste exactly the same. Yes they are good, but nothing special for me.

Seems silly to add to all the great reviews. Line looks long but moves quickly. Great doughnuts but skip the deli side.
