First off let me start by saying that I have loved this place since I was a kid and go there every time I return to the area. However after this last visit I was so utterly disgusted that I will most likely never return unless some serious much needed changes are made and honestly it should probably be shutdown by health inspectors until then .
When I visited the restroom it reeked of urine and actually had it standing around the base of the toilet from what appeared to have been a leaky wax ring. The toilet itself actually had black water spots (I hope) in the bowl from lack of cleaning as well as all kinds of nastiness around the ring and seat, the sink was also completely gross as it had mold around the faucet and knobs, there was a bottle of dish-washing soap to wash up with and most disturbingly of all the hand towel roll (reusable towel that spins around) was filthy brown. After returning from the horror of the bathroom I started to look around and noticed the entire place was just plain nasty. There was very old food spilled around the windows and especially the trash cans.
Like I said I have loved this place since I was a kid so I get that it's old... I can live with old but nasty no thanks. I really hope this changes because I honestly love their donuts.

I agree. And the donuts get less and less appetizing every time. They just aren't that good.. Like they aren't fresh. They had flies in their display last time sitting on donuts! I was grossed out. Needs to be cleaned & remodeled badly!

You are exactly right. This place is disgusting. The restroom, the flies in the donut case, the horrible donuts themselves, and the rude workers that must feel they are owed something. I hope the new Dunkin Donuts runs this place out of town.

It's clean, but the donuts are not wonderful like Ralphs. I wanted a donut place to be as good or better than Ralphs, but imo it isn't. Big O is very unclean and I don't know where the heck the health dept. is and why they haven't shut it down.

All I can say is, they must have friends that work for the health department.

The owners of this place should be to ashamed to open the door to the public.

I'll try the other places mentioned.

Why Big O Donuts is still open is they have 24 free internet and it's always has students from TTU there all night.

You should have made a picture of the restrooms and posted it on here. That would have made believers out of some people and even the health inspector....Just sayin.....)

Jimmy is not the health inspector anymore which he was very good about keeping resturants in line. Replace him with somebody that allows businesses to make there own rules.

Someone posted that Tech students hang out there, but that is all they do, just some where they can
hang out at. There sure in the hell aren't eating any donuts. Anyway the place is NASTY.

Tech students do eat the donuts because I've been in there lots of times at night. No other place in Cookeville is open 24 hours a day with free internet. Students or kids will eat anything. At one time they problem with rats in the dumpter.

The only people I see there I'm the middle of the night or ever really are creepy looking dudes! As a young female it freaks me out to be there alone! There's never a lot of people just hanging out!

Big O's is so NASTY u people need to observe when u go in that nasty place. I have not been back in there for over a year. I have no intentions of ever
being back in there.I had rather have a donut from
Wal-mart and that is saying a lot.
