First Review by Sonja and Dirk

Perfect Comfort Food - Edit

There are so many vegan options in the LA area, and if you don’t normally have that on your doorstep it’s almost overwhelming. With only one day in the city, I am so so so glad I ended up choosing to eat here! This is the kind of place that proves vegan junk food can exist and taste just as good, if not better, than the ‘real’ deal. I wish my stomach was bigger for a restaurant like this. There is even a vegan ice cream store opposite... (if you like peanut butter jelly, get the burger (it’s an eye opener))

Pros: Almost too many good options

Late Night Comfort Food - Edit

Let me tell you that this place is the perfect late night comfort food. That being said, it is comfort food, with the grease and all of it. Not your healthy vegan option, but it is still vegan, so it's not the worst option! Their mac and cheese patty melt is to die for! Their southern fried chicken is also really great! We didn't enjoy the wing type one as much, but the breast was delicious. Definitely going to be a regular late night drunk eatery for us!

Pros: Late Night Vegan, Comfort Food, Mac & Chz Patty Melt

Cons: Not a Healthy Vegan Option, Pretty Greasy, Too Busy for Dine-In

Pretty, Pretty, Pretty gooddddd - Edit

Go for the savory stuff, not the desserts. I'm from SF and got excited when I saw tiramisu, key lime pie and creme brûlée. The creme brûlée was great but the others were not. The key lime'a crust was a little burnt and a weird mint color and the tiramisu we ended up throwing most away which is unheard of in my household!!!!! The cheeseburger, fried chicken and mac n cheese were bomb, though.

It ain’t health food! - Edit

I’d been wanting to head out for awhile and I was in the area as I went to meet Gaz Oakley (@avantgardevegan) at a book signing, so I figured this was the time!

I ordered the chicken with bacon cheese fries and Mac and cheese. It was all so good. It was definitely not healthy vegan but what do you expect from a place with “Home Cookin’”in the name. When you are looking for great tasting food and can afford to cheat one day, make this your place!

Pros: Great place to bring those scared of vegan food, Cocobella Vegan Ice Cream across the parking lot!, Doomie’s also own NextMex, the Mexican restaurant

Cons: Parking is limited

Very good. - Edit

Very nice meal. I had the fried chicken basket and upgraded the fries to the bacon and cheese ones which were AMAZING! The Mac n Cheese was the best I’ve had since changing to a vegan diet. The fried chicken was okay. The batter itself was lovely and melted in my mouth but it was very greasy. I’m not sure what the “chicken” was coated in before the batter was put on but because I didn’t know what it was, I found it a bit off putting.

Pros: Fries with bacon and cheese, Service, Selection of food

Cons: Quite greasy

Best Vegan Junk Food I’ve Ever Had - Edit

Doomie’s Home Cooking is AMAZING! Best vegan junk food I’ve ever had, hands down. I got the Memphis Burger, and the Mac n’ Cheese bowl and they were to die for. The fries have a perfect crunch to them, and the flavors mesh together so well. The service was amazing, the staff is super friendly and helpful, they’ll give you recommendations and answer any questions you have. The food came out super fast and there wasn’t excessive amounts of grease or oil, like other reviewers have said. The atmosphere is super cool, the place looks and feels like a hometown diner, with a city twist to it, almost has a bar-like feel, minus the bar. This place gets busy fast, and I understand why now- the food is phenomenal! Doomie’s is a MUST if you are in Los Angeles, and an extra must if you love junk food.

Pros: Phenomenal food with large portions, Friendly and helpful staff, Nice atmosphere

just so fried and heavy - Edit

I love that they can make everything fast food vegan but...after eating half my order I felt so grease filled that I couldn’t even think about having more. That place is a vegetable free zone.

Pros: all vegan , great service, lots of beers

Cons: a fat bomb, so much grease, feel like you need to detox after

Horribly Awesome - Edit

Doomies is the perfect place to prove that us vegans can still enjoy tasty toxic oily food minus all the animal crap.
It took some time for them to get with the plot and drop the cow cheese but now that they have I’m thrilled to send everyone I know there to put on a bit of weight and, if anything like me, eat so much oily tastiness to leave with a well deserved stomach ache. Don’t forget to try the jalapeño poppers. Yum!

Pros: tasty, tasty, tasty

Cons: not skinny food proceed with caution

Still dream about this place! - Edit

Came across this place by accident whilst staying in LA for 1 night during a 2 week holiday in California 18 months ago AND I STILL DREAM ABOUT THEIR ‘CHICKEN BURGER’! Food is unreal delicious.

Pros: Vegan junk food, Laid back atmosphere

Nuts - Edit

I've eaten a lot of vegan junk food in my life, but this may top it all. We had fried chicken, Mac and cheese, chili cheese fries, pulled pork sandwich, and cheese steak. All was super tasty except for the Mac and cheese which had very little flavor (bummer). You will leave here wanting to eat salad for the next week straight but not regretting it one bit.

Pros: Tasty, Lots of crazy options

Cons: Extremely unhealthy (is that a pro?), Disappointing Mac and cheese

Yes Dude - Edit

My boyfriend and I came here and we ate practically everything on the menu! I was so in love with the buffalo wings and the fried chicken basket with Mac n cheese. Delicious vegan junkie comfort food! He got the burrito and ordered another plate of those buffalo wings. Also those deep fried Oreos for dessert are spot on. This food is banging.

Pros: dude just go eat here it’s seriously delicious

Love Doomie’s! - Edit

We aaaaalways have to come to Doomie’s when we’re in West Hollywood. It’s the comfort food you miss all in one place. We’ve tried many different dishes and loved all of them - jalapeño poppers, animal fries, bacon cheeseburger, pulled pork sandwich, fried chicken basket, and chocolate cake. Everything has a ton of flavor and leaves us fat & happy.

Pros: Delicious, All vegan, Unique food

Cons: Dingy atmosphere, Not many healthy options

Uneatble - Edit

I am not one to write reviews, but all the food we ordered was extremely greasy, soaked in oil, and the food belonging to people around us looked the same, so I don't think it was an unlucky order at all. It was so full of oil that the tastes across different meals were really noticeable, all tasted fairly similar.

Really regret going there, we only are small parts of our meals and left super disappointed and hungry.
I highly don't recommend this place, this was too much even for people who normally don't have any issues with staffing themselves with a bunch of vegan junk food.

Cons: Extremely oily, Pricey, Unhealthy and not even tasty

Favorite Restaurant - Edit

Doomie's has been my favorite restaurant for years. I've taken non-vegan friends here and they love it as well. I've never gotten something I didn't like and the desserts are phenomenal.
I usually get the classic burger with avocado and ranch which is awesome but other notable things I love from here are the mac and cheese, the nachos, and the peanut butter & bacon burger (trust me, it works). There are a dozen different types of French fries and you really can't go wrong.

Pros: fried oreros. duh.

Cons: valet parking on weekends

greasy. bad service - Edit

Me and my carnivore buddy wanted to get some vegan junk food, and junk it was...
Very disappointed from the burger patty (is that boca or gardien? Doesn’t really matter, they charge 15$ for that).
My friend ordered the philly cheese steak, it was so greasy!
The fries were so dry we had to replace them twice before we gave up and asked for small salad, just to absorb the oil...
The service was very poor.
Super disappointing, the potential is great, but not enough

Pros: nice manu

Cons: bad food, bad service

100% vegan comfort food! - Edit

This place is not for someone on a diet (like me, whoops), but it has DELICIOUS vegan food that I've never found anywhere else! Like the pulled pork burger. The texture was perfect, but the flavoring was a little off so I wouldn't necessarily choose to order it again. However, the animal fries were BOMB and the ham and cheese croissant was literally better than a real ham and cheese croissant, and that was my favorite comfort snack when I ate meat. The German chocolate cake was good, but I've made a better vegan German chocolate cake myself, so I would opt to try the regular chocolate cake next time. Hollywood isn't close to my house, but I HAVE to go back to this place for more, especially for another one of those ham and cheese croissants!

Easy, yummy comfort food! - Edit

I found it difficult to find the place since it was part of an office complex - right in the corner - but I was very glad I did. The inside is quite dark but has a diner sort of feel which matches the menu. My waiter was really lovely and helpful which made the experience, to be honest. I had a spicy chicken burger with a side of chili cheese fries and it was basically the best thing ever. The chicken was so realistic it almost scared me!! The spice came from a pot of spicy mayo which I found wasnt too hot and just amplified the taste of the chicken more. The fries were a bit wet but what could I expect when they were skinny fries drowned in liquid cheese and chili? They also had one of those machines where you can add flavour to your soda to make cherry coke for example.

Pros: soda machine, amazing taste, nice vibe

Cons: dark, loud and busy, no healthy options

Great food and old school vibe! - Edit

Exactly what the description says... American diner type fare. Great atmosphere for a hole in the wall kind of vibe. Everyone is friendly and a variety of clientele tells you that this place appeals to all types. Very reasonable prices. Also, within walking distance of The Arclight Cinema and Dome which makes for a good place to go before or after a movie.

Awesome food! - Edit

I first tried Doomie's burgers at the Eat Drink Vegan festival and was blown away by how delicious the burger was! After trying it at the food festival I had to go to the restaurant. I got a burger again, but also tried their alfredo pasta, which was also on point! I am a big fan and will definitely be back again and again!

DOOMIE's - Edit

I don't mind sitting in a parking lot to eat here. It's delicious and it's nothing like you can get in NZ obviously. I'll travel to the other side of the world for the buffalo ranch fries. I regret saying that but it probably true. Plus the check comes in a love songs compilation which I feel nostalgic about. Side not- the alcoholic kombucha makes me feel slightly better about myself. Kanpai.

Pros: bacon without egg white , ranch fries , BLAT

Cons: car park to sit in , blacked out windows

go vegan America! - Edit

This is one of the most interesting vegan restaurants far untill now. Not only that they have all traditional American burgers as spicy chicken burger, bbq pork burger, tower chilly cheeze burger with beacon, everything taste great! Even the table decoration (images from Marvel and DC comics) make the great atmosphere. Portions are nice and it really fill you up. I was visiting this spot on daily basis during my stay in Hollywood area. Im gonna miss it.

Pros: excellent food, location, friendly stuff

The best place for vegans to take non-vegans - Edit

Just go and let your non-vegan friends order whatever they want. After they eat it and say how delicious it is, then tell them. Guaranteed that they'll never know. Comfort food like no other. Enjoy every bite.

Pros: seems like it's not vegan so no complaining about

Cons: more filling and fattening than the average vegan

The nachos... - Edit

Tried their recreation of the Big Mac while at the Chicago vegan festival so when in LA I had to stop by their restaurant. Decided to get the nachos and they did not disappoint. This place is top notch.
