Feast your eyes on the size comparison of a regular doughnut vs. a Texas-sized doughnut.

The rumors are true, everything IS bigger in Texas. Open at 5:00 a.m., rise and shine to Round Rock Donuts! Jan and Dale Cohrs are the sixth owners of this western-themed hotspot. They have managed to conserve the charm of this yeast-risen treat by keeping the same recipe as its original owner, who started churning out these delights back in 1926.



The bread-like dough and its unique dark yellow color derive from the natural essence of fresh farm eggs. Preserving its old-fashioned baking method, Round Rock donuts are never processed in factories or with machines; instead, each treat is individually hand-rolled, cut, fried, and iced. Other indulgent items on the menu include kolaches, cinnamon rolls, muffins, and cupcakes.

Here are America's best doughnuts!

I sliced the giant donut in equal parts and the ratio comparison is approximately seven to one! Located only a few minutes north of Austin and near the Dell Diamond Baseball Stadium, this home run dessert is available in two flavors: original glazed or chocolate. Affordable, delicious, unique, this is a must add to your taste of Texas bucket list. If you’re planning to order half a dozen donuts, you might as well go for the big one.
