Hurts Donut

Bring the kids — or let your inner kid out at the DFW outpost of this popular chain. Hurts is the kind of spot where wacky doughnut names are only topped by the piles of cereal, candy, and icing that decorate their products. Don’t like what you see? DIY doughnuts that incorporate all those over-the-top toppings are also an option. Order from Uber Eats, Doordash, or Grubhub.

Detour Doughnuts and Coffee

These doughnuts for the adventurous are an experience worth driving to Frisco for, unless you’re lucky enough to live nearby.

If not, the Unicorn, complete with an icing horn, and Galaxy, which is topped with sugar stars, offers a nice iced, yeast donut option. Order from Uber Eats, Grubhub, or Doordash.
