Restaurants in Inglewood, CA

If you’ve just arrived at LAX or about to depart, the city of Inglewood has some precious fare to introduce you to Los Angeles or by which to remember it. The best-known is Randy’s Donuts, spottable from blocks away because of the three-stories-tall donut that floats above its roof. Randy’s is open 24/7. In a small strip mall on Centinela Avenue you will find both Phillips Bar-B-Que and Harriet’s Cheesecakes Unlimited, the latter a take-out-only storefront with a repertoire of dozens of cheesecakes that many connoisseurs consider to be the best of the best. For sit-down soul food breakfast and lunch, just down the road is The Serving Spoon, a high-spirited cafe where specialties include chicken & waffles, fried pork chops, and southern-style vegetables.
