Mellow Mushroom introduced their new burgers in the fall of 2015, one for carnivores and one for vegetarians. While the veggie option no longer exists, customers can still order an all-natural black angus beef burger and have it customized.
I love to dine al fresco, and one of the few places near me where I can sit back under an awning and enjoy a good burger is Mellow Mushroom. That’s right – Mellow Mushroom is now serving hamburgers.
Though they are known for their classic Southern pizza (did you even know there was such a thing?!), they have branched out and started serving America’s other dish, the hamburger.
Mellow Mushroom’s new burgers come in two varieties: vegetarian and beef.
The vegetarian burger (Herb) is made with kale, quinoa, roasted mushrooms, and brown rice plus seasoning and other veggies. The patties come topped with Cheddar cheese, romaine lettuce, tomato, sweet onions, and fresh avocado.
The beef burger (Carnie) is made with 100% choice, all natural, certified Black Angus Beef. A big plus is that the cows were humanely raised and the beef is minimally processed (no ammoniated procedures or additives). It is available with Swiss cheese, caramelized onions, romaine lettuce, tomato, pickles, and garlic aoli spread.
The burgers are served with a side of roasted red potatoes.
Burgers aren’t your thing? Don’t worry – they still serve good ole pizza made with an Appliachan spring water-based dough topped with sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes.
Mellow Mushroom has soup, too!
I recently tried both the vegetarian and beef burger and can say that they are both delicious. If you are a meat eater, you will enjoy Carnie. If you are a vegetarian or just like a good sandwich, the “Herb” burger is full of toppings and tasty. While I was waiting on the burgers to cook, I tried some Magic Mushroom Soup. It was perfect for a cool, autumn afternoon.
