Gourdough's Public House is coming to San Antonio, the Austin-based donut spot announced Monday.

Gourdough's will take over La Paloma Parrilla Grill's spot on the River Walk, giving tourists and residents alike access to sweet-as-heck, decked-out treats as well as a full menu, including donut burgers.

The sugary spot began as a food truck in Austin back in 2009 and has since opened a brick-and-mortar restaurant. The River Walk location will be Gourdough's first venture outside of Austin.

"We’re excited to be growing into one of our states’ most iconic and historic cities," said co-owner Ryan Palmer via press release.

He said the San Antonio menu would mirror that of Austin, but will also highlight the Alamo City's landmarks and legends. So yes, there will be a Selena donut.

Palmer also hopes the move to San Antonio will help make Gourdough's a part of Texas's cuisine and not just part of Austin's "quirky food culture."

Though the property on the River Walk has been secured, an opening date has yet to be set. Pending renovations to the space, Gourdough's is expected to open before the end of 2018.
