Randy's Donuts

805 West Manchester Ave., Inglewood, CA - (310) 645-4707
Posted By Samuel Shor on 9/9/2009 9:32:00 PM
I have never had a better tasting donut ever, period. The coconut raised donut is by far the best thing I’ve put into my mouth in a long time. I would drive across the country for another one of those. I do not say this lightly. I was not expecting to have the near-religious experience that I had when I bit into this. The flavors are perfect; nothing is too overpowering or oversweet, and the texture is pillowy soft. The honey wheat cake donut is extremely good as well, and the maple log is not too far behind. The coffee is the perfect accompaniment to these three treats.

Believe every last word you hear about Randy’s; it’s that good. There is no hyperbole here. As far as I know and as far as I’m concerned this is the best donut in the world, and until I find otherwise I will stand by that.

While two or three donuts are suitable for breakfast, just one of these big buns is plenty.

The point of this kind of looming
"The point of this kind of looming "vernacular architecture" is to provide early warning to the motorist that there's something good to eat up ahead. Unlike a billboard, which you have to read, Randy's gargantuan donut speaks for itself."
Michael Stern


A beacon in the night, Randy's is hard to miss if you are in a car and circling around LAX.
