Lucky me, I live just around the corner from MJ's. I "try" to forget about this doughnut shop but it is hard. The doughnut's are always fresh, warm and delicious. Friendly staff and the coffee is good too. Give yourself and extra minute or two, there is usually a line waiting to be served. Yum

Got two donuts here, which were absolutely massive and very good. A true hidden gem. Would definitely go here again!

This place is definitely not one of your chain donut shops. The donuts are super fresh and absolutely delicious. It's located in a quiet area across from a school so it's just a quaint stop as a whole. My my and I were floored by the flavor. Will definitely return.

Maybe I am not a big donut lover, but to me this place is no different than Dunkin Donuts. I got a box of donuts for my co-workers and a cup of coffee. My office team didn't eat many of them so I cannot guarantee they liked them or just had no appetite for sweets.

This was listed in the top 5 Donut places by the local paper, so thought it would be worth a try. The paper had a bit of a bias toward funky 'new' flavors I.e. you rated lower if you were not adding stuff like bacon or anchovies This is not one of those places. This is a traditional Donut shop...

I went to MJ's on the suggestion of a friend. I bought a chocolate covered cake donut, a cinnamon roll, a glazed donut and a few donut holes. The glazed donut was exceptional, whereas the cake donut was just average. Tasty but nothing special.

This is always a good stop. It is not fancy. The donuts are fresh and the lady(ies) behind the counter are always friendly.

If you want real donuts that don't taste like the blah choices at Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts, this is your store. There are no better donuts. This is the best kept secret in the Charlotte metro. The most amazing apple fritters are made right here too.

Stopped at M J Donuts recently. Their selections of donuts made it difficult to pick which ones to buy. The donuts were very fresh and so delicious. We actually had some donuts leftover and they were still very fresh tasting the next day unlike some other donut shops.

Doughnuts are thick, doughy and have no flavor! Only went once and that was enough to know I will never go back!!
