Gut Check readers are pretty vocal when it comes to doughnuts. We're always hearing about new places all over the city and county, especially when we do our delicious blind taste tests. The vote is in, though, and there's one place we'll definitely be going to soon.

Donut Drive-In (6525 Chippewa Street; 314-645-7714) came in at number one (it was second in our blind taste test) and Old Town Donuts (510 North New Florissant Road, Florissant; 314-831-0907) was the top write-in.

We actually named Donut Drive-In the best doughnuts in St. Louis back in 2004, and Old Town was 2012's pick. Donut Drive-In still uses the family recipes from the 1950s and was once voted the best doughnuts on Route 66. The bakery was visited by the Food Network's Alton Brown on an episode of Feasting on Asphalt. OK, so maybe it's not underrated -- we all know how delicious those doughnuts are.

Here's the full report:

Donut Drive-In (6525 Chippewa Street; 314-645-7714): 36.57 percent
Other: 22.29 percent
Donut Stop (1101 Lemay Ferry Road; 314-631-3333): 13.14 percent
Vincent Van Doughnut (@vinvandoughnut): 16 percent
Eddie's Southtown Donuts (4701 South Kingshighway Street; 314-832-1200

Lived down the street from there for five years. Great donuts, though their hours were always very sporadic.
