Great Graduation Lunch

We were in Durham for my son's college graduation. The commencement ceremony was a 9 in the morning and ran until a little after 11. As everyone filed out of the stadium to meet with family, we ended up in front of the Mellow Mushroom to meet my son. My other two teenagers left with my son to meet... read more

This is a great place to go before anything in and around the Durham Tobacco District. Not only is the pizza great, but the window in the kitchen gives the kids something to do while they wait for their pizza. We've tried several pizzas and they are all good. We will definitely be going back!

The Mellow Mushroom has wonderful pizzas. Great thin crust, and the topings are fresh. The location is great, right next to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and a short walk from the Performing Arts Center (DPAC)...Great for a fairly quick meal that is delicious.

We ate at Mellow Mushroom for the first time last summer in Asheville and enjoyed it so when business took me to Durham, it seemed like a good choice. I was not disappointed. Was it the best pizza I ever ate? No but it was still very good. I liked the sauce and the crust was excellent. Just the right... More

While I've always been pleased with any of the Mellow Mushroom restaurants locally, this particular location housed in the American Tobacco District near DPAC in Durham, NC is getting a big thumbs up from me. MM has my favorite signature mushroom soup & the food is always good. Also the wait staff was excellent, always smiling. I can't wait to... More

While taking in a baseball game at the Durham Bulls Park, we had dinner at the Mellow Mushroom. The atmosphere definitely reminded my wife and I of our youth and the 60's. Unfortunately, the pizzas were good, but not great. We're tempted to go back and try a different pizza.

Service was excellent and the pizza was very tasty! A nice crispy crust and the ingredients were fresh and delicious! There was a nice variety of pizzas to choose from, both red sauce and white sauce as well as gluten free if you need to go that route. We went on a Friday night and were able to take advantage...

Mellow Mushroom has consistent quality from location to location. Not a big nationwide chain, but a small multi-location restaurant in NC. No matter which one we patronize, we are always pleased. Fresh ingredients, no skimping on portions, great wait staff. This location in the American Tobacco District of Durham is no exception. Fantastic, helpful, quick server. Excellent pizza. The crust...
