    While everything is great, the rotation of fancy donuts are absolutely amazing. Best. Donuts. Ever.

    You wouldn't think chicken and donuts go together but once you order from here, you'll realize they should never be apart!

    "Fried chicken and donuts?" you ask, a bit perplexed. "Don't worry about it, just do it." Is the only appropriate response.

    Great donuts.

  • MisterEastlake

    They run out of nearly everything so get here early. Leave work early if you have to!

  • Laura C.

    I love a fancy donut but a warm, sugared donut fresh out of the fryer is the way to go. Fried chicken before 11am is an extra bonus (served with a honey donut) if you get here early!

    $1.25 for freshly fried donuts...can't complain. Fancy donuts were sold out by the time we got there after 1pm.

    If you've never tried them, go for the fancy donuts, but don't forget to get a few hot donuts too 🍩

    A cult favorite among Philadelphians, Federal fills its donuts with innovative flavors (halvah pistachio, chocolate-covered banana) or dusts with the sugar blend of your choice (vanilla lavender).

    DailyCandy · February 14, 2014
  • Jessie H.

    Come early to get wings! They sell out fast.

    Their cake-y donuts are out of this world—try the vanilla lavender or Indiana cinnamon. Oh, and eat em' while they're hot!

    Lisa Anne Muir · August 23, 2013
  • Brandon S.

    The sticky bun donut is perfect, but they should totally make a waffle flavored donut to go with the fried chicken!

    It's not nice to refer to Latin American people as robots.

    They open at 7a...Chicken at 11...wings at noon. The chicken is worth the wait. Try the chili-garlic sauce The hot donuts are the best!

    If you love fried chicken and hot donuts, make Federal Donuts in Philly your new Mecca. Just get there early and don't expect a seat.

    Pink lemonade donuts!

    Ryan Kenny · February 23, 2013

    Honey doughnuts. If you come after 11:45 a.m., pair them with the James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Solomonov’s take on fried chicken.

    Sarah Raymond · February 7, 2013
  • jO

    Chicken starts at 11:45am. Arrive a bit earlier, they give out numbers

    Despite all the wild flourishes of color and flavor, the plain honey doughnut that comes alongside every order of chicken is still the best breakfast weapon in the FedNuts arsenal.

    Philadelphia Magazine · January 14, 2013
  • Ciara G.

    Skip the "fancies" go for the "hots". Lavender Vanilla was dreamy.

  • Barrett L.

    Definitely lives up to the hype. The Harissa Chicken and Pomegranate Nutella Donut are the best!

    unbelievable fried chicken - definitely try the buttermilk ranch and wash it down with a Jones cream soda - totally worth the hype!

  • David C.

    Good, but not as amazing as everyone makes it out to be! Definitely the freshest around though!
