Dat Donut

Donuts, Food

Description

Dat Donut is known for the famous Big DAT, since December 1994, Dat Donut has been a Chatham neighborhood institution. The owners opened their flagship location on the corner of 83rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue. Donuts were always a childhood favorite and you can sometimes spot them on site delighting in the deep fried confection. Darryl and Andrea take pride in a good quality product and friendly service.

Definitely a place you stop by when you're in the area. The apple fritters are huge. Next time I'll try the lemon and carmel donuts.

Jeaneen S

Best donuts on the Southside for a reasonable price.

I LOVE making the trip to this place for my sweets. I am born and raised on the south side of Chicago and this is definitely a staple! No question I am willing to bypass several Dunkin's for these large, home made, buttery-soft delights. Don't buy these and let them sit around long, while they do keep a million times better/longer than store bought, it'll cause you to miss out in that warm excitement ;-)

Donuts are a tradition in my office for any occasion warranting a treat. I'm generally not a fan, and always skip out to avoid heartburn. Someone recently left boxes from Dat Donut in the breakroom to celebrate a promotion...and passing through, the smell was so intoxicating I could not resist a peek or a taste. I tried half of one, and went back for another half later in the day. Not too greasy, nor was the glaze too sweet! If you are passing through the Chatham area, I would certainly plan a stop.

I'm always up for a good fresh donut so a friend and I went to Da Donut and was amazed with the variety. My favorite is the lemon filled which I can eat all day. Donuts are fresh and hearty.

My all time favorite donut place. I absolutely love the "big dat" both glazed and chocolate covered. Always fresh and you can actually see them making them which I think is super cool.

Takes me back to that dounut shop under the train on 63rd Halstad when I was a kid. Good fresh tasty the best around. Chicago's best

Natasha G

10/31/2016

Very tasty donuts. But the variety sucks. Unless you come in the wee hours of the morning, your choices of donuts are greatly reduced. Why dont they simply make more throughout the day? That's like having a shoe store but you only sell 3 types of shoes. Sad.

Hairy P

10/31/2016

I have travel far and wide, I have tried just about every donut and coffee shop, however; none by far have ever come close to the five finger licking good as Dat Donuts. And the coffee is so smooth, you will want to order a large.

Just an all around great donut place. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere, but they make by far the best donuts I've had in Chicago. Prices are really low and the donuts are huge!

LeAndrea H

So the jerk rib tips I ordered were good, but more hot than I was expecting. The service, however, is awful at this establishment. The people act as though you owe them something personally when you're the patron. Everyone seems to have a look of disgust of their faces. This is definitely not the type of service that I am used to. I will not be visiting this establishment again based upon the service alone!

Good selection of great tasting donuts. People come from all of Chicago to get some.

The donuts are delicious. The help's disposition is pleasant, with the exception of one bad encounter with the help and I have not seen that individual again.

Grace B

My favorite donut shop! The glazed donut is fresh with a perfect ratio of glaze to dough. The outside of the donut is hard and the inside is soft and tastes like heaven. Better than any donut that I've had, going here is worth the drive and you will not regret it!

I went to the Dat Donut on 82nd and Cottage Grove since it's located in my community. The time was about 3:50pm on August 13. Unfortunately, the middle aged woman that waited on me had a terrible attitude from the moment I stepped to the counter. On top of that, she misheard me and made a mistake with my order and when I pointed that out, she began fussing and blaming me for the mistake in my order. Mind you, I said it pleasantly. If you work in customer service, be pleasant to the customer. It wasn't a complicated order, nor was I being difficult or unpleasant back. I think she needs to be trained or placed in another position away from people because it's tiring dealing with unpleasant workers. It takes less energy to just be nice. Anyways, I went there because the donuts are always good, but I think I'll take my money elsewhere until the service gets better.

Best donuts in the city, hands down. Better than stans, glazed & infuzed and all those other hipster joints. Good customer service for the most part too. Keep up the good work!

Linda A

Home made fresh old fashion donuts very good and tasty. if This my opinion go check them out.

Adam D

Excellent donuts! Get the big daddy! Cheaper than a regular stans!

Erik B

10/8/2017

Great donuts, but be careful when you try to take them out of town. They'll be dryer than a powder house if you don't store them in something better than the bag they give you. Mine went stale in 8 hours. Still, I recommend the place - even with the bad service.

I love these donuts . The glazed to die for. The coffee is always smooth and hot. Staff very friendly and fast.

No beards no tattoos...

just delicious OLD SCHOOL DONUTS.

All the favorites are here - maples, long johns, crunchy old fashioneds.

They have coffee too, but none of that fancy mess.

No tables, so get your order and GTFO.

Bring CASH.

Never got a donut in a bullet proof lazy susan before; definitely a first. Kinda gross having bbq smell next to a donut shop but open to the charm of it all. The place is scuzzy and suggest getting your donuts to go.

lady s

2/13/2018

OMG! I could taste the donuts now..so good..and there is a bbq joint right on the side of them...go here and you won't be disappointed

I tried two yeast doughnuts (strawberry glazed and caramel glazed) and the double chocolate buttermilk old fashioned. The buttermilk old fashioned was slightly above average. It was definitely better than firecakes, but not as thick or moist as Stanโ€™s, so depending on your preferences for texture, you might love this fluffier although slightly drier doughnut. The yeast doughnuts here are amazing. Iโ€™d rank them below panaderia Nuevo Leonโ€™s, but above every other donut shop in the city, so second in the city by my lights. These doughnuts are yeasty and the right combination of moist, fluffy, sweet, and chewy, realizing all of these qualities with an almost perfect balance! My favorite, esp if youโ€™re going for something sweet, was the strawberry glazed. The glaze does give the whole doughnut an extra punch of sweetness so beware. I also liked the caramel glazed, esp if you are going for something not as robustly sweet. The glaze for this one was delightfully subtle, since you really had to concentrate and reflect on what you are eating and notice, maybe โ€˜feelโ€™, for the flavor, something only subtlety of flavor demands you to do. I personally liked that, but someone in a rush may be to distracted to notice. Service was great. Look forward to having more of their yeast doughnuts!

My favorite donut place in Chicago. Fresh, tasty, large, and affordable. The Dat donut is large enough for three people and is delicious! Move aside trendy, hipster, overpriced donuts. This is the way donuts should be - fresh and for a good price. Definitely worth the ride (and getting past the decor/external)

I love this place and the fact that it's black owned. The customer service is pretty basic and don't mind the hungry people outside. They're still our people. The only thing I can't stand is I get off at 6pm in Oakbrook. I literally go out the way to support you all and you can't understand simple business ethics like supply and demand. Every single time I come there you all have little or no glazed cake donuts and that's all I like. Please do better. I am a patron and can't get there in the morning.

The donuts I got tasted good and I got 3 of them plus an apple juice for $5. Note: they require an ID if you pay with a debit or credit card... And a $3 minimum purchase.

Deborah D

This doughnut shop is the best in Chicago - fresh, creative flavors, lots of variety and authentic. The dough they use is the real deal and eating a Dat doughnut gives your craving the satisfaction you seek. It is so good that I am going here today for my birthday instead of having a boring cake! Breakfast sandwiches and coffee are great too!

Easy to get to from the Loop or Hyde Park. GO TO DAT Donuts!!!!!

It's okay. I've heard ppl say they had the best doughnuts in the city so I decided to try them. I went Saturday morning and was REALLY disappointed. The doughnuts definitely were NOT fresh. Maybe they taste better on weekdays.

Hey if you are looking for a place for GREAT donuts; I have the answer for you! Dat Donut is one of the best pastry stores that I've ever had. Along with improved facilities, Dat Donut ๐Ÿฉ is a good time awaiting. Dat Donut is truly a place to go when you want a refreshing pastry with a variety of: coffees, smoothies and othet assorted pastries. Also, it's housed in the same building as wonderful barbecue restaurant with plenty of upfront parking.
