My rule about donuts is that just because you buy it, you don't have to eat the whole thing. So I took advantage of the "buy four get one free!" offer. I'd definitely go back for the chocolate donut, buttermilk donut, and the apple fritter. Those are the donuts you want.

first time I was here was in 1970... a buddy and I had smoked some weed, and got the munchies really, really bad...walked down 17th to the donut shop very late at night, and ordered one of everything, it helped!... went here after the Rutgers game, and had a donut and coffee.... still pretty good....

Apple fritters, vanilla cream-filled with powdered sugar, buckeye (choc-pb) and bacon doughnuts. Glazed twists and an assortment of cake doughnuts. Yum! I think they also have lunch sandwiches and combos, but I'm all about the doughnuts.

Line was out the door but moved quickly. We ordered 4 doughnuts and got a 5th free, but that special was only good on 4 doughnuts not more. They had a good selection of doughnut flavors, but were sold out of some we wanted.

Went here late a night and it was packed. Line out the door. The employees are decently friendly. You will see some interesting characters around the area, especially if you go at night. I'd recommend getting at least a half-dozen. 2 buckeye donuts for sure and a mix of the others! GO BUCKS

Cruising High Street in Columbus, Ohio we found BUCKEYE DONUTS , a veritable institution with timeless appeal and a compact seating area ( we got to go orders) and the BEST donuts I have found over 14 years in the Ohio River Valley region. The service is express. The donut varieties include classic staples and creative batches like the Red... More

This bakery located on the main campus of THE Ohio State University has the best donuts. Typically, I am not that much of a donut lover, but theirs are the best! Their Buckeye donuts taste just like a Reese's cup and are so good! They are open 24 hours I believe. Their powdered jelly and cream donuts are also amazing.... More

If you like donuts after dinner and are in Columbus this is your place. Open 24 hours when every other place closes at 7pm or before. Simple donut shop with killer cronuts!!

We promised our Grandson if he finished his dinner we would get him a doughnut. So with a recommendation from our OSU Grad we stopped and ordered 1 chocolate and 4 Buckeye. The Bucheye doughnuts were wonderful. We all enjoyed them.
