Mellow Mushroom Herndon - The Story

Inspired by the preferred method of public transportation in Washington D.C., the white brick building feels like the Metro. The outside is painted with a black and white painting of a train, and inside, industrial light fixtures and metal pipeline sculpting give the place a subway vibe. A large mural ‘map’ of the Metro covers one wall with blues, purples, yellows, and greys, and a giant metal “You Are Here” sign hangs above the kitchen. A wall on the opposite side of the space features a retro-style image of a couple saying goodbye next to a train ready to depart.

Customer Reviews

First time at mellow mushroom and I see this becoming a beautiful friendship… as someone with celiacs, eating a gluten free pizza that tastes so good (and so much like normal pizza) is wonderful. To many places make gluten free pizza taste awful.. but mellow mushroom? Best gluten free pizza I have EVER HAD. Thank you for being inclusive.

As usual food is pretty tasty. Always get the pretzl bites and pizza. With the quality beer you can't go wrong! Great service with staff that gets to know when when you keep coming back ..love that personal service

They have great vegetarian options for sandwiches, soup, and (of course) pizza. Always a hit with coworkers that I bring and our family. Decor is interesting; they make great use of the ample wall space.

I first went to Mellow Mushroom years ago when they first opened in Herndon. I wasn't impressed. The pizza at the time was flat and felt more like frozen. Literally like a Party Pizza from the grocery store. Fast forward to now and I went back. Huge difference. The pizza is closer to New York style and it was awesome. Many unique flavors you wouldn't think would work but is incredible. The Pacific one was a surprise. The Jalepeno's aren't too spicy and don't ruin the pizza. We also ordered the cosmic wings for an appetizer. Was amazing. Bottom line, this is now a proper pizza place and I'll be returning and ordering more often.
