Garnering universal acclaim upon release, Mm.. Food received an average score of 81 from Metacritic, based on 22 reviews.[3] Ryan Dombal of Entertainment Weekly wrote that Mm.. Food "flips countless edible metaphors over hard-hitting, jazzy beats while never devolving into pointless parody".[7] David Jeffries of AllMusic called it "as vital as anything he's done before and entirely untouched or stymied by the hype".[4] Pitchfork's Nick Sylvester called Mm.. Food "an attempt to make good on Doom's almost fascist conceit to restore rap's golden age despite its loss of innocence".[11] Nathan Rabin of The A.V. Club called the album "a crazy pastiche tied loopily together around obsessions with food, comic books, and supervillainy" and wrote that DOOM is "exempt from the law of diminishing returns".[14]

In 2012, Stereogum named it the best MF DOOM album.[15] In 2015, NME named it one of the 23 "Maddest and Most Memorable Concept Albums".[16] Complex named the song "Rapp Snitch Knishes" the 22nd funniest rap song of all time.[17]
