This business venture of Kenneth Pogson and Tres Shannon is one of a kind. Voodoo Doughnut is a doughnut market, serving the sweet rings under weird names like Dirt, Butter Fingering, Cock-n-Balls and… No Name. Yes, that too is the name of one of the doughnuts! The Menu undergoes modifications quite often. Live music on Tuesday and Wednesday nights promotes young talent. Lots of interesting activities take place like the doughnut eating contest, which happens on the first Friday of each month. If you want to introduce your guests to these treats in the comforts of your home, go ahead because custom made doughnuts are also available. Suggest this wedding venue to your friend. Yes! Legal wedding service is conducted right in front of the Holy Doughnut! This fun-loaded eatery has, no wonder, bagged a 10 minute long media coverage. Welcome to the world of Voodoo's doughnuts.
We had pretty high hopes for this place after hearing about it and I am happy to say that it lived up to expectations. There are a ton of different types to choose from, some better than others but plenty of reasons to go back and try the new varieties. Great place to stop off after a night of drinking.
I highly recommend:

The concept is great, and the ideas for doughnuts, excellent! I had seen this several times passing through downtown, heard of it several times while talking to friends and finally saw a little blurb on it on the Food Network. I finally gave in, I'd go check this place out. For starters if you like crammed dingy rooms with a long lines then you'll probably like this place. They obviously get enough service as they are that popular you would think it would be time to expand the joint. After waiting for about 15 minutes it was finally my turn. I had seen so many yummy looking doughnuts, there were so many to choose from I didn't know what I wanted to get. I had been looking at the menu to see how much a dozen was. I couldn't find it anywhere. As I opened my mouth to ask how much a dozen were, I started by saying, "Uh," I was a little uncertain so I was interrupted with, "IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, THEN YOUR NOT NEXT IN LINE, IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT THEN YOUR NEXT!!" I was promptly brushed off and the next customer was served. I in fact new want I wanted a dozen doughnuts randomly selected. I first wanted to know how much a dozen was. I wasn't given the opportunity to even ask. I don't like that concept at all I think that lines were created for a reason... and it didn't look like they'd be losing any business soon so what's a few extra seconds to help a guy out? On top of the rude girl at the counter, the doughnuts are WAY over priced for a mediocre taste. I really was expecting more for the price tag that came with them. The average doughnut ran at about a buck 25 to a buck 75. I would have been much happier at Krispy Creame or even Safeway has better doughnuts. I was also a little disappointed that they didn't have the "bl00d" filled effigy doughnut I was looking forward to!
