The Falls Church location of Astro Doughnuts opened this morning, with lines already reaching out the door. The restaurant is larger than the Metro Center original, with seats for about ten people and a soda machine.
Astro will serve its popular doughnuts (including its creme brulee variety) and fried chicken, plus an expanded breakfast sandwich menu and tater tots. They'll have limited hours during this weekend's soft opening, and regular service will kick off Monday. Status: Soft opening. 7511 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, Va.; website.
