Randy's Donuts

805 West Manchester Ave., Inglewood, CA - (310) 645-4707
Even if you’ve never been to Randy’s Donuts, you’ve probably seen it before. A favorite location for movies and TV shows that want a background of extreme roadside kitsch, Randy’s is one of a couple of gigantic donuts that loom up in the L.A. area. The varieties of donut include the basic (and best) honey glazed regular, chocolate-covered, jelly-filled, powdered, frosted, and filled with crème.

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.
