    No donuts from 9pm-10pm - old batch sells out by 9pm, and new batch happens a little after 10pm.

    Bob's provides 24-hour service to the denizens of Polk. All their donuts are great, but the apple fritter, perfectly crisp-soft and laced with plenty of cinnamon and tender apples, is a standout. Read more

    Love the maple donuts. Great late night snack. Their giant donuts are also legitimately good - not just a novelty.

    Sometimes they make a powdered sugar raised donut, which is not to be missed. Also, donut holes (made from the same raised dough) are great for portion control.

    Arrived close to midnight on a Friday evening and was told that the apple fritters were last fried at 10pm, and the next batch wouldn't be made until about 2:30am Saturday morning.

    Sooooooo good. Definitely get a warm glazed donut at 2am. Don't hold up the line by asking about every single flavor. No chat and cuts either, please.

    French crueler is the only way to go (in conjunction with an Apple Fritter).

    I also saw a lot of people order the ham & cheese croissant. So I got one too. It was ok. Too oily and dense. Not a fluffy/crispy croissant at all. You'll probably need a nap after.

    Apple fritter is big enough for two, but it's so damn good, you might as well eat the whole thing yourself.
