My "Best Donuts in Dallas" list was posted today here on D Mag's SideDish..
It was a long, difficult journey, making this here list. Many early mornings were spent driving around this entire city sampling fried dough from nearly every place I could find. Many mornings I was up before the sun, in order to sample the freshest offerings each establishment could provide. More often than not, the results of these excursions were disappointing rather than, enjoyable. There are at least 200 donut shops in this city making the exact same cookie cutter donuts from the exact same pre-made mix as the next guy. It's pretty sad really. Dallas is so far behind the donut curve compared to other great donut cities. But in the end, I firmly stand behind my choices. These represent a handful of places that really take pride in what they do. Here's some pictures that weren't included in the article:
