Shipley Do-Nuts (Houston, TX)
6411 Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard, Houston, TX, T: 713-738-2248
Shipley Do-Nuts is a local donut chain (mainly) in the larger Houston area going back to 1936. They are a regular donut store, selling classic-style donuts and coffee. What sets them apart is that their basic donut is made of yeast.
I ordered an original glazed, which were just freshly made, and had the girl at the drive-thru counter choose the two others. I forgot the price, but I thought it was just under $3. All donuts were quite chunky and tasted fairly similar to Dunkin' Donuts. The best one was actually the original glazed.
Shipley Do-Nuts is a regional donut chain, which is similar but a bit better than Dunkin' Donuts. However, although the original glazed is the most tasty, it cannot compete with a (hot) Krispy Kreme original glazed donut.
