Chicago, IL Edition: Do-Rite Donuts & Chicken


Doo-rite donuts & chickenOn our last day in Chicago, we didn't have any plans until lunchtime. But, that didn't stop my belly from grumbling "donuts" early that morning. A quick search turned up a donut place right next to our hotel: Do-Rite Donuts & Chicken (yep).

There was a bit of line, which I took as a good thing. Once I got to the front, I ordered one of their maple bacon donuts and a "Blueberry Lemon Duffnut," which is a collaboration they did with Duff Goldman, known from Food Network's Ace of Cakes and Cake Masters.
