Great donuts, definitely need to try them!! These were very flavourful and very fresh, they had both cake and yeast donuts to choose from. Cashier was very friendly. Worth a quick stop!

We heard a lot about this place. Not worth it. The donuts are super expensive and average at best on taste. The service is super slow. Takes awhile to get through the process.

5/5 definite. I’ve read some reviews in the negative, but had to go see for myself. Ordered 2 pizzas and a dozen donuts. My own take: pizza was decent. Had a white and a Hawaiian. Both were good. Now the donuts-in my opinion, beat the...competition up north (won’t say the name but they’re famous outside OBX). I had the cake donuts; and they are very generous with the frosting/topping. And the flavors are really good! So my take is that if you are in the area; stop by and grab some grub!More

This was our first time stopping in over the last year when they were actually open. We wanted to try the donuts so we did a small order of 4 donuts, $11. Our first mistake was not looking at the menu to see half dozen...would have been $10. One would think it would have been mentioned to us that a half dozen was a better option. Either way. Donuts are good but not outstanding. The donuts are small and nothing special on top. If in town and wanting donuts this will take care of your craving, but I think I rather have a DD or KK donut instead.More

We were going to stop by Duck Donuts to get some of our favorite donuts but didn’t make it by the time they closed. We still wanted donuts so we stopped by the Dough Shack and were honestly happier with their donuts than we would...have been with Duck Donuts!!! If you have a craving for donuts- make sure to stop here!More

Great pizza! Great delivery! Great experience ordering over the phone without a menu! She was very patient and made sure we had what we wanted! I just love when you give a new place a try and they knock it out of the park! My...new favorite pizza place! Maybe next time we will try the doughnuts! P.S. Thanks for being open on Mondays!More

The dough is great but the marinara sauce has little character and need more of it, and they use too much cheese, which over powers any sauce there is. Staff is friendly, but they didn’t answer the phone, so you have to go there to...order. To go orders only.More

First night is always pizza. This year we were able to get into our house much earlier than most years so wanted to get pizza on Hatteras instead of driving back to Nags Head. Pizza is reasonably priced- buy 4 large, get the 5th one...free. Got the supreme, the white, cheese, and pepperoni. Crust was good and pizzas were great. White pizza was a huge hit. Will have to get that one again. Kids said it reminded them of cheesy bread. I had to go there to order the pizza. They were so slammed they couldn’t keep up with phone orders. When I picked up my Pizzas at 7 they had run out of dough. Don’t order too late!More

Rodanthe has limited eateries so the first night we vacationed we decided to try The Dough Shack's pizza. It did not disappoint. However the highlights were the doughnuts AND the Everything Bagel with bacon, egg and cheese. We had the same breakfast sandwich 3 days...in a row! If you're in the area you HAVE to try it. You won't be disappointed! Service was great and the team was very friendly too.More

Late Winter, early Spring visit to Rodanthe was in the mood for some pizza. Got the supreme and was very happy with the crust and amount of toppings. My son picked up donuts there one of the following mornings and they were delicious (blueberry assorted)....Definitely a standard when staying down this way. After all, doesn’t every beach trip require pizza and donuts!More

I'm not a pizza person, but I love Dough Shack's pizza. The best crust ever. Always very fresh and hot. And they deliver. Easy to find.

We went for breakfast, and the food was absolutely incredible! The donuts were fresh and delicious, and the breakfast pizza surprised us in the best way. The only thing that would have made our visit better would have been an espresso bar, but it’s a...small place with a limited menu, so maybe that’s something that could come with time. The staff was extremely friendly and chatted with us a little bit while our pizza was in the oven. Overall, it was a great experience from start to finish, and we’ll definitely be back in the future! Would absolutely recommend to pizza and donut lovers alike!More
