The donuts are good, the orange twists are their signature. The don't open until 630am which is late in my opinion. Most of the time when I stop at opening of the day they don't have the "Jr. Twist" ready yet?? which again is one...More

Their chocolate frosted are great as well! Everything is always fresh. My kids love the donut holes (orange and regular). Come early!

great donuts but get there early when they run out they close. I had a chocolate frosted donut also had the orange twists. Locals love this place, my daughter loves them.

Wonderful donuts! I especially love the "long john" which is a chocolate glazed eclair, filled with wonderful vanilla custard. Locally, everyone goes crazy for the orange twists. If you're in the mood to satisfy your sweet tooth, this is a definite!

Davis Donut House has been a family tradition for at least 3 generations. My grandfather used to take me to the old location in downtown Forest City. The legendary Orange Twist is our very favorite Davis Donut, but every option in the selection is delicious....More

They have about any type of doughnut you can imagine.The orange twists are delicious.This is a no frills place and the interior decorations certainly won't impress you but who cares? You're there for doughnuts not interior design.

This is a small town friendly restaurant. The donuts are always fresh. They close a different times based on when they sell out, so I recommend getting there early.

We arrived in late morning, so the options were scarce, but man, were those good donuts! Nice and cakey with the perfect amount of real icing. Excellent!
