More Changes Coming to ‘McTacoHut’ in Reston

The Pizza Hut, which opened at 1821 Wiehle Avenue in 1977, is set to flip into a new pizzeria sometime early next year.

Now, more changes are in store for the fast food block, which is known as McTacoHut in Restonian-lingo.

The McDonald’s, which is located at 11265 Roger Bacon Drive, is set to undergo major renovations by early 2020. While county permits are in process, it’s estimated that renovations could begin early next month.

A spokesperson for the McDonalds Corp. told Reston Now the main lobby and drive-thru is expected to remain open throughout the renovation.

The renovations are part of the company’s efforts to modernize its look and incorporate technology like digital kiosks and mobile ordering.

The Pizza Hut plans to remain open until its lease ends in early 2020. After that, Pupatella, a Neoplitan pizza restaurant, will open in The Pizza Hut’s location.
