Respond to Review of Doomie's Home Cookin'
Review: I feel kind of bad leaving a less than five-star review as it seems everyone who reviewed Doomie's thus far genuinely liked the place, but I went twice now and both times I was let down. I mean, for the most part, you can get the majority of the menu items at other establishments in the area; the food menu (outside of a couple desserts) wasn't very unique. I have tried NINE different menu items, and all have been WAY too buttery/greasy/fried/salty. I brought food home in a (Styrofoam, GRRRR) take home container once and when I transferred it into another container, there was a puddle of butter/oil at the bottom that glistened like leaky car fluids on black top. I know this is supposed to be comfort food, but Veggie Grill is comfort food and theirs is way healthier, tastier, and cheaper. The location is bad, too, and you have to pay a lot for parking if you go at night. Again, all the food is already available at nearby restaurants, and not only that, it seems like the bottom of the rung, basic vegan food that you eat when you're transitioning to a vegetarian diet from an omnivorous one. It's food most people can cook at home using your basic vegan cooking book, like 'Vegan with a Vengeance'. There's nothing overly creative about it, nothing that stands out as unique. The service was also horribly slow both times I went even though there weren't too many people in the restaurant. There were two parties that got their food before mine even though I was only in a party of two and ordered the same thing as one of the people in the other party. The employees kept to themselves and barely spoke, even when I ordered, they just kind of stood there and almost grunted their way through helping me. I left a good tip both times regardless and smiled my way through (the smile wasn't returned). All-in-all this was a big disappointment, and I suggest you either cook this food at home or go elsewhere for your cravings. Doomie's is a recipe for a non-tasty, vegan heart attack.
