There’s No Restaurant In The World Like This One In Austin

Beginning as a modest food trailer, Gourdough’s has exploded into a restaurant full of sweet, decadent donut glory. After one bite, you’ll understand why. Featured on Food Network, The Travel Channel, and in Rolling Stone magazine, this mouthwatering restaurant has become an Austin icon. Their slogan is simple, yet effective: “Big. Fat. Donuts.” These aren’t your typical sugary confections, however. Visit one of their brick and mortar locations on West Fifth or South Lamar, and you’ll find donut hamburgers, donut hole dumplings, and donut dough kolaches. Yes, there’s truly no restaurant in the world like this one in Austin.
