Not a fan of the crowds at Reading. But worth it. Compared to Krispy Kreme - Classic glazed here is more substantial, but not heavy, ever so slightly chewy and more flavorful than the big chain's. They need to produce so much, the donuts are just barely on the correct side and not undercooked. Did not even get to try... More

Take it from a fat guy -- these are donuts worth driving for. The line around the case doesn't lie, from apple fritters to boston cream to more esoteric treats, you can't go wrong here. The donuts have a very slight crisp on the outside, and soft tastiness on the inside. If you go before 10, they'll likely still be... More

Ok, I am not usually a donut fan. Seeing this line up, I thought that I should try them. I had a glazed one. It was awesome. I wished I took more. Definitely going back tomorrow to buy some more and bring some to my family and friends.

I stopped by the day before Easter, and the line was huge! I stood there for a while, but it was not moving very quickly, so I decided to come back another day. We came back a few days later and the line was much shorter. We picked out two donuts and we were blown away by how good these... More

Waited 30 minutes during Volleyball tournament at Convention Center. The apple fritters are sooo good. Cheap and excellent. I would wait in line again!

I had seen this place because a video that had been circulating on Facebook. I couldn't have been more impressed with what I got! The donuts lived up to the hype. We went on a Thursday morning and the line wasn't too long. The staff moved the line pretty fast too so we were helped pretty fast. We loved our... More

Worth every moment on line. Four of us shared a box of six and could have eaten six more. Our favorites were the maple bacon, Oreo cream and French vanilla. Ate them with iced coffee. And, they're only $1 each.

We kept seeing the Beiler's boxes with donuts being carried around by so many and had to find them and try. Glad we did. If you're going to eat a donut you might as well eat one that is this good! The coconut creme was OMG good! Boston creme was also amazing. These are made with quality ingredients and serious... More

Get the salted caramel and the Elvis! And okay, there are a ton that looked amazing, but we only got to try four (b/c we couldn't go nuts). These donuts are insanely cheap and really delicious. The line at Reading Terminal was so long, we almost didn't go, but it moved really fast and we got to watch them making... More

I absolutely love these donuts. They are so warm, creamy and soft that I could eat 4 of them in one setting specially with an nice brewed cup of coffee. If you are ever in town and want to try some really great donuts PLEASE stop at Beiler's in Reading Terminal. You will encounter a long line but it's worth... More
