It's a quaint little place run by a good guy. There are just no better find in town than these fine things. Abdul is a good guy...loves America. Is a naturalized legal citizen.

Ok. So we've been in the KC area for 3-1/2 years. Haven't been able to find a good donut yet. Everyone loves Lamas here, but we hate them. Found Jacks Donuts on Lee's Summit road this morning. So good! I ordered a glazed twist. It was warm, with a bit of a crispness to the donut skin, if that makes... More

I went here on a Sunday morning at 7:05. Jack's Donuts is open from 6:30AM to 2:00PM. The closed sign was still in the window. There were about three dozen donuts - all cake - in the donut case. I asked for two glazed and two long johns - which were not in the case. They told me those would... More

The donuts are fresh and tastes of goodness!!! It's a small family business and they're very friendly and helpful. I'm glad I stopped in!

Looks can be deceiving. It is located in a strip mall. Greeted by a very nice man. Apple fritter was the size of my mom's plate which was 8 inches. The bear claw was about 4x6 too! 1.99 each but we'll worth it!

5 donuts = $5.35. Other than a gob of sugar, a donut contains flour and an eensy bit of other ordinary baking stuff. All in, making a donut probably costs 5 cents. Typical donut = 300 calories. Nutritional value = 0. Donuts are the perfect American food, made more perfect (deadly) by a slather of frosting and sprinkles. Pursuant to... More

Grew up on Jack's and moved away and found there isn't anything close to them in most cities. The cream-filled long johns are incredible.
