Reader: Dunkin' Donuts donuts are fair-to-mediocre, and the coffee overrated
The countdown isn't as crazed as the wait for Trader Joe's, but fans of Dunkin' Donuts are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Denver's first Dunkin' Donuts store -- and Denver's second Dunkin' Donuts store. Both will open on Tuesday, September 24. The store at 366 Broadway -- the first of twelve that will be opened by the father-son team of Brad and Buzz Calkins -- will start pouring at 5 a.m. Tuesday. And at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, what's billed as "Denver's first 24-hour Dunkin' Donuts," will roll out along with several other eating spots and services in the new waiting area outside of Denver International Airport -- dubbed the Final Approach. Mayor Michael Hancock will drink the first cup of Dunkin' Donuts coffee there.
But will it be worth the wait?

Not according to monopod:
Boulder used to have a Dunks. It closed and the space turned into a coffee shop and then a medical marijuana dispensary. Kind of describes Boulder in a nutshell, actually.Have you been to a Dunkin Donuts? Will you be going to the Dunking Donuts on Broadway? At DIA?
Having grown up in the northeast with Dunks on every corner, I don't think this development is worth much excitement. Their donuts are fair-to-mediocre (the apple fritters are good, as are the Boston creme if they're fresh), their coffee is overrated, and their non-donut food is downright nasty.
