They taste great, and I’ve never gotten sick.

My husband who can eat gluten tried mine and was amazed. He too thought it tasted like a regular cake donut.

12-2021 We were back in town so we returned. I had another wonderful doughnut with no side effects.

*****Now that I have read the reviews from former workers I would not eat here. I am grateful that I’ve never had a reaction.

I’m so bummed that they share the toppings and that they are no longer gluten free. They used to be great!

I used to work for Do Rite and their gluten free donuts are NOT gluten free. Yes, the batter itself is gluten free and they fry them in a separate fryer but after being fried they encounter rampant cross-contamination. They are glazed, iced, and decorated in the same exact materials as the regular donuts. This is standard procedure at all locations. As we made donuts throughout the night the glazer would become filled with small pieces and big chunks of our regular donuts, so it was very common to glaze the gluten free donuts in glaze that was absolutely filled with pieces of glutenous donuts. They also dipped them in the same icing as the glutenous donuts and in the same toppings as the glutenous donuts. So although they start out gluten-free, they are absolutely not gluten-free by the time you purchase them.

This is not a dedicated GF facility, but they are very careful. GF donuts are in a separate part of the store and the server changed gloves before getting our GF donut without us needing to ask. Donut was tasty.

I absolutely LOVE Do Rite! They prepare their 3 GF donut flavors (birthday cake, chocolate, and cinnamon sugar) in a dedicated fryer, and keep everything separate through the whole process. When you order gluten free, 9 times out of 10 they will change gloves without further info. Once or twice this hasn’t happened, so I would still recommend asking them to, or noting that you’re celiac.

These donuts have fooled my non-celiac friends - they’re really amazing!

Separate case of GF donuts. With all the good food in Chicago, we still came here twice bc the donuts were so good! Tasted like regular donuts (which I haven’t been able to find since being GF).

Best GF donuts I’ve had! They were in a separate case (only three flavor choices but VERY GOOD), server switched gloves and put in separate bag.

Only wish is their famous fried chicken donut sandwich had GF chicken.

Very good donuts!

These are hands down the best gluten free donuts I have ever had. They are good donuts in general. Their sugar cinnamon are the perfect taste and texture. Just make sure you go early because they run out.

Every time we visit Chicago we make a trip to Do-Rite for their awesome GF donuts. They never disappoint! They are big and not overly sweet. I wish we had donuts like this back in Indy.

Seriously?!?!? Best GF donut, or dessert, I have ever tasted in the almost 7 years I’ve been GF. I waited for 10 minutes as they needed to make more. So, I watched the staff wait on many other people. They are 100% careful with cross contamination. Always had new gloves on, used bakery tissue and/or washed their hands. GO!!!!!

I will walk a long way, and early, to get my gluten free chocolate cake donut. Gluten free donuts are in a separate case and sell out quickly. I also like the cinnamon but can’t stop thinking about the chocolate covered.

I had the cinnamon sugar donuts, very good, not dry at all. This location is donuts only, not the biscuits and sandwiches in other reviewers’ photos. You walk in and place your order at the counter, and there is no where on site to sit and eat.

They use a separate fryer for their GF donuts and they have them in their own display. We got the chocolate frosted, and it was very tasty! The cake-style donut was chewy, relatively moist and basically a dream come true! <3

First day they were sold out late afternoon. Went back next morning. Super disappointing!!! Ordered 2 vanilla with sprinkles. They were okay. Not great, but at least the frosting keeps them from drying out. Ordered 2 cinnamon sugar. Big bulky things that are dry as a bone. Would not go back!
