This may just be the best donut shop in the state. I have had my fair share of donuts and man these are very hard to beat. Not just that but this place is completely family owned and operated. Same man has mad these donuts for years just look at the newspaper clippings they have. This place is amazing! I don't think it would be the same either if they updated it. I think its great how everything looks the same as when I was young

Great price on donuts. Great selection. Kind/funny employee. Did charge card fee, which isn't too odd for a donuts shop considering how small the transactions at these places often are.

By far the best donut shop in town. Way better than the robot maid donuts over at Krispy Kreme or frozen donuts at Dunkin donuts.

One of the landmarks of Bowling Green. A 24/7 family owned donut shop that prepares homemade donuts. The donuts themselves offer quite a variety and are delicious, fresh and are served at a very decent price. You may also get coffee or milk to accompany those tasty treats. Definitely a must if you are in town.

Caaaake donuts! You know the kind: heavy & moist, dunkable & delicious. Excellent selection, friendly service, and the coffee was surprisingly not bad. We went out of our way to stop here on a road trip and it did not disappoint. Will return the next time we pass through Bowling Green!

They could change their name to the best donuts; or awesome donuts... but they ARE truly GREAT! No doubt about. You really couldn't get much more American than that. A family owned and operated joint... eventhough they are Asian people. This place looks exactly the way it did the first time i went. You'll never forget em! Just like the sincere "thank you!" they'll leave you with (no purchase necessary! )

There is something about the pastries at GADS that makes you know, absolutely know, that you're getting a great homemade product. My purchase of over a dozen donuts and pastries was for 2 people to enjoy and I'm sorry to say it didn't survive the day. Covid-19 times are hard on our businesses, get out there and get some! #81

Great donuts, great people, great times! This place might look like a hole in the wall and only seats a few people but when you walk through that door for the first time and smell those fresh donuts you will be hooked. My favorites Blueberry Cake, Bavarian Cream, and Cream Horns, everything I've ever tried has been delicious and guaranteed to wreck any and all low-carb dreams. Enjoy!

Who knew there was a 24-hour donut shop in bowling Green! My friends and I were in town for one night for a conference and one of them had gone to school in bowling Green and suggested that she take us to this 24-hour donut shop. Everyone got one or two varieties and it was great all-around! Wonderful donuts! Great service.

Best donuts in town. Locally owned, I think they're still 24 hrs/day, friendly and quick staff. Overall, this is the best place for donuts, hands down; Bowling Green absolutely ADORES this establishment. I'll be back, again, and again, and again....

These are the best donuts I've had in a very long time. The texture of the donut is perfect -- light, but with the right amount of chewiness. The flavor (buttermilk) is perfect. The glaze amount is also perfect -- you want a thin glaze so that it dries quickly to a nice crunch. A lot of places have too thick of a glaze and the donuts get wet after they sit a little while. The lemon filling is excellent quality -- strong flavor and not too sweet. The chocolate donuts are done correctly -- no glaze!

I can’t believe it has taken me over 4 years to review this absolute GEM of a donut shop. Great American Donut Shop (GADS) is the absolute best. Their no frills donuts are never disappointing. Let me tell you about their best 2 donuts though, the blueberry cake and the strawberry cake donuts. Both of these are probably the softest, tastiest cake donuts you will ever eat in your life. There’s an argument to be made that one is better than the other, but I absolutely could not choose. And why choose when you can just buy a dozen of both of them? Seriously, if you are passing through Bowling Greene, do not miss this place. It is an absolutely must for the donut, cake, or sweet tooth lovers out there!

Since coming to Western Kentucky University as a freshman to the present 8 years later, I have always enjoyed the sweet treats that GADS (Great American Donut Shop) has to offer. The convenience of dining on donuts at anytime sets this place apart. As many have said before me. “They do The Lord’s work”

The donuts are cheap and delicious. The coffee drink I got, I think it was a white chocolate cappuccino, was painfully sweet to the point I couldn't consume it. The donuts were incredible though... They definitely met the expectations I had built up from all the hype.
