Yesterday I promised donuts. BIG donuts. Possibly the best donuts I’ve ever had. And I don’t even like donuts. Find them at Ma Wilson’s Texas Sized Donuts in Pecos, TX. Just don’t come on Sunday, she’s not open. And while the picture really doesn’t show the scale of these things, if you buy more than one, she’s got to use cake boxes—And I’m pretty sure she can only fit a few in there. With the size, the donut takes on a whole new character. More dough, less sugary crust. Given the caloric consequence, all donuts should be this good.
If you go, just head West on I-20 to Pecos (about 6 hours) and North on 285. We were passing through and asked a few locals for a good place to grab breakfast. Strangely, everyone recommended either the Flying J Truck Stop (with a wince) or a BBQ joint. Not quite ready for BBQ at 9am, we kept driving only to stumble upon Ma Wilson’s. Make it a stop if you’re passing through.
