Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken Serves Gourmet Fritters Near Falls Green


What do ThrillistTimeOut, and The Washington Post all have in common? Their expert food critics agree that Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken offers up some of the most delicious sweet and savory bites anywhere in the country. It’s all thanks to the childhood friendship of co-founders Elliot Spaisman and Jeff Halpern, who grew up loving sports and American comfort food. They loved the latter so much that they decided to make a living out of it.

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, try the creme brulee doughnut. It’s the best thing on the menu, according to The Washington Post, and that’s particularly impressive given the stiff competition. The maple-bacon, vanilla-glazed, and Nutella doughnuts are all just as delicious, and they’re made-to-order so they’re still hot when you get them! If you’d rather try the chicken, it comes in two-, four-, and eight-piece combos, as well as specialty sandwiches. Try the signature “Asteroid” sandwich with spicy fried chicken, jalapeno-infused cole slaw, Comeback Sauce, lettuce, and pickles on a brioche bun.
