River Oaks Donuts

Going on an outing in Houston at the River Oaks Donuts shop is a fun thing to do if you have grandchildren. I had never eaten filled donut holes until I visited this delightful place.

It’s a small establishment but very friendly. They do have a couple of tables set up outside. Though hot in July, it’s nice if you get there early.

There is another reason you want to get to this donut place early. They run out of a popular filled donut flavor fast. It’s called Red Velvet. I heard about it and didn’t get there in time to try it out.

Two flavors I did try, though, that are very good are the lemon and strawberry.

You can order pigs in blankets or sausage and cheese kolaches. The kolaches are a favorite of mine when I am in Texas. Oh yeah!

Now there’s one more AMAZING thing you must try at River Oaks Donuts. NUTELLA filled donut holes. YES! Check this picture out. Notice that it’s quite skimpy. Hint, hint. People love them. I know why. They are incredibly yum-‘licious.

I would recommend this place for sure. My daughter and two little granddaughters and I enjoyed it. Mmmm so good!

Most of the time I’m watching my nutrition carefully, trying to do the right thing. Sometimes, however, I splurge when it comes to my little grands and making food memories at a donut shop.

  1. Red velvet filled donut holes? Yummy. Do you know if they fill them before or after they are fried. Nutella filled donuts sound very good, too.
