2017-05-28 17:33:07   I was so excited about both the donuts and fried chicken! I sincerely hope the fried chicken is better than the donut experience I had this very disappointing - and incredibly expensive ($3.25 a piece!!!!). My friend and I ordered two donuts to try - the "house" donut was OK.. nothing special at all. The strawberry Shortcake one, we didn't even finish, most of it went in the garbage - not worth the calories... sad...

When eating something called a maple-bacon doughnut, one shouldn't complain about the calories, but four bucks for a doughnut is pretty steep. —GaryGocek
