It's not open yet, but it's going to be on West D Street, just past the Thai restaurant.

there has to be an Amish store around there that sells donuts

Jude there is, it’s actually in Hamptonville Shiloh genre store. The donuts are the best ever.

To each his or her own..But my taste buds say you've never had a doughnut till ya try a KK "New York Cheesecake"

I tried that one a few weeks ago in Winston, and didn't like it at all! To each his own, I guess

The apple fritter was great, though.

You hicks need out more often. The going rate for a slice of a cake in a bakery is more like $6 to $8.

The last one I got at a bakery was the one next to 6th & Main... I forget what it was called, but I think they're gone now. A 1/8th slice of cake was $5, and they were one of the better ones in town.

But I did hear that Dom's has hired a local baker to do cakes and things, in addition to the donuts. I forget her name, but she was apparently one of the really good ones

There is a little Amish store in Mtn City TN. I discovered it a few weeks ago and I loved it! They have some great food and candies. A lot of old candy that I not seen/had since I was a kid.

You hicks need out more often. The going rate for a slice of a cake in a bakery is more like $6 to $8. And have you seen what a dozen doughnuts at Krispy Kreme costs? Way too much for what they are. Plus, their quality has gone down hill. I used to think nothing beat Hot Doughnuts Now. But the last few years they have gotten greasy. Some locations more than others. But over all, those KK’s taste like the oil they are fried in. Spend the extra money and buy from a local business where the products aren’t processed ingredients from a factory. If that costs too much, skip the junk food.

DD is more comparable to Starbucks, which is being constructed as we speak. No one outside of the county knew there was a DD inside of Walmart anyways.


Posted 6:28 pm, 04/10/2019

Wilkes has already done the DD thing...did not work out too well


Posted 6:08 pm, 04/10/2019

I'm with Jude on this one...Dunkin Donuts!!!!

You need a dunkin donuts

There has never been a doughnut better than Krispy Kreme. Dixie Donuts are ok but they do not
compare to KK. Having KK on 421 would do a good business. Look at Chick-fil-A, they rock it
out and have the quickest drive thru in Wilkes County, great food, order is always correct and
they truly appreciate your business. Bojangle’s in Millers Creek will only take one
order and will leave you sitting at the ordering station until the car in front of you
has paid, has their food and driven off before they will take your order. Slowest drive-thru in the county.


Posted 2:23 pm, 04/10/2019

Sorry Krispy Kreme to me is by far better


Posted 1:27 pm, 04/10/2019

i agree with heretooffend.

One of my old bosses had a theory that Wilkes County ruins every chain restaurant that comes to town.

I first bought in to this theory, but over time, something didn't make sense. Chain restaurants, for the most part, at least put out a relatively consistent product despite their other many shortcomings. The reason for this is that despite the many things they do wrong, most of the food is the exact same product, exact same preparation process on the exact same equipment. So why does it seem like upper-mid level chains like Chili's, Olive Garden, blah blah, blah, were so much better when we had to drive out of town to get to them, as opposed to when the same restaurants open in wilkes?

My new theory is those restaurants always sucked, at least as bad as the ones in wilkes suck.....but for years, we had nothing else to compare them to.

For years, the only steak places we had were Quincy's-Ryan's type places that served an over-cooked crappy $6 steak.....when we go out of town and try a place like lone star, it was like a whole new world. However, when these places came to wilkes and we got to eat it all the time, we then began realizing that they also suck....not as bad as quincy's mind you....but still, as bad as the ones out of town suck.

As for Krispy kreme vs Dixie or any other doughnut i've ever tried on the planet, there is nothing to compare to Krispy Kreme. The chocolate iced cream doughnut and the regular glazed are the best 2 doughnuts on the planet in my opinion. If we had a KK in wilkes, i think it would lose a lot of its magic....it would still be better than Dixie or Dunkin, but i would not enjoy their products nearly as much if i had access to them all the time.

I too am for local business but even $3-$5 is steep for just a slice of cake. I don't need or want a KK here as I reserve it as a treat when in Winston or wherever there happens to be one while I'm out. If there were one here I would likely be as big as my house. I love DD especially that heavenly sausage donut!


Posted 10:54 am, 04/10/2019

Yeah, I don't know that I would have paid $25, either! The going rate for a slice of cake at a bakery is $3 to $5.

I don't know how much Dom's will be, but Dixie Donuts is $11 for a dozen of donuts. That's about the same price as Krispy Kreme.

And I was thinking about the Starbucks that's coming. You know they will destroy Talia and Anchor Coffee, even though Starbucks coffee is nowhere near as good and it's the same price.

I am all about supporting locally owned businesses and I try to whenever I can. I went to a local bakery a few months ago. I got three small pieces of cake and two glass bottle drinks and it was a little over $25. I didn't ask for prices before I made my order and they were not clearly posted. When the cashier gave me the total I thought he had made a mistake but he had not. Two of the pieces of cake were mediocre and one of them was absolutely amazing but I will not ever pay that much for a few pieces of cake and drinks again. I could have saved a whole lot of money getting my dessert somewhere like Krispy Kreme that day and would have been just as satisfied with the product.
