Just in time for the summer season, Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken announces weekend hours, starting Saturday, May 25. Weekend hours will be on Saturdays only from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. In honor of new weekend hours this Memorial Day weekend, and to mark the unofficial start of summer, Astro and Chef Jason Gehring will offer a seasonal special Strawberry Shortcake Doughnut: vanilla yeast-raised doughnut, strawberry glaze and white chocolate for $2.25. In addition, a complimentary side will be offered with any 8-piece fried chicken order. Current sides include potato salad, Asian slaw, tomato and feta salad and a cucumber dill salad.

  • Good to see weekend hours! That part of downtown needs more activity outside office hours.

      There just isn’t enough residential apartment/condo/etc in the immediate area to demand it. The blocks around here are pretty much all hotels, if anything.

      It would be nice if they could find somewhere to build seating or something in this little takeout space, even if it’s just a bar built into the window. Not everyone has the time to hunt out somewhere else to actually eat their food after they’ve picked it up (tip for anyone reading, go a block south to the large courtyard by the National Press Building).
