    I again struck out today in my attempt to try an Old Fashioned Apple Fritter. I drove to Mr B's Old Fashioned Donuts on S Pulaski around 3:30pm (on a Wednesday), only to find the door locked. There was an employee inside, but it appears they were taking down many of the shelves/racks and cleaning inside, and there were no visible donuts - the opening hours were clearly posted as closing at 8pm on Wednesdays, so I'm wondering if they may be closing or going out of business? The phone number found by Google/yelp/other sites for Mr B's seems to be disconnected.

    Please post updates if anyone else ventures by Mr B's.

    About a month or 2 ago I came across a flyer and called the number to inquire about the location and hours since there was no address on it. I never got a straight answer and got the impression that they were having some sort of difficulty with the business.

    It’s just as well since their product was a pale imitation of the Roseland fritter, so people who went there first would be disincentivized from making the trip for the glorious original.

    In case anyone was wondering, OFD is still firing on all cylinders. I picked up a an apple fritter + a half dozen (2 glazed, 2 caramel, 2 strawberry). Everything great.

    That said, when I turned onto 107th and Michigan, things looked a little grim and I was concerned it might not be open.
    It seemed like virtually every storefront was gated or boarded up. Luckily I could see a single cop car in the distance outside OFD, and then I could smell it a couple blocks away... So I knew things would be okay.

    I don't think they're doing curbside; But there was strict social distancing inside and everyone was wearing masks.

    I was in and out within s few minutes. Business seemed steady, although perhaps not as brisk as normal.

    Sorry to report my last batch of fritters were a bit off. Less fruit and an aftertaste that seemed to me to be from the oil. Chalking it up to a one time issue. Too bad we bought 3 dz.

    I was also there on Saturday. The fritter was excellent as always, and even the last bites tasted great this morning for breakfast after a few seconds in the microwave.

    The french cruellers, not an every day offering, were also excellent; although we didn't happen to get a batch right out of the fryer.

    Yeah, the 3 dozen you bought for the Stevez Memorial Dinner back in February were not tip-top. The oil was off. Anyone who was having one for the first time that night was probably thinking "wtf?!" Oh well.

    A police car at a donut shop - who would have thought? :twisted:

    A very kind friend was in the neighborhood and picked one up for me recently. It was my first, and I was extremely impressed. I ate it over a few days (I know, insanity!) and it stayed good to the very end.

    They apparently use butter as a preservative.
