Mello Mushrooms is another great place to eat and have fun in Durham! Located right next to the baseball stadium, it's very convenient to stop in before or after the game and enjoy drinks and a meal or appetizer! ....Good service, rustic atmosphere, outside dining accommodations, and good food. They make their own dough, which is great. Their pizzas and... More

As a vegetarian there are some places that just don't have many options for you, but mellow mushroom has you covered. Instead of meat you can add jerk tofu, curry tofu, or tempeh to any of their creative pizzas. We had the chicken mole (replaced with tempeh) pizza and it was fabulous! They also have some NC native beers on... More

We had a long wait after which we were seated. Our pizza was very mediocre--not crispy nor particularly tasty. Outside dining was nice.

While there are quite a selection of pre-show restaurants near the DPAC and DBAP, I continue to magnet back to the Mellow Mushroom for its easy in easy out, great food and excellent service. Their brick oven pizza is bit different, so if you're looking for Pizza Hut or sicilian type, you may want to opt for something other than... More

Good place to catch a bite before a Bulls game. The pizza was fine, although the wait time was a little long. Great list of craft beers and local selections. Again, not terrible, but not all that memorable either.

OK-Forget the overall chain restaurant BORING decor(if you can), and the large echo industrial ceilings-the pizza is what you came for isn't it? Why? I did not like the pizza-I must be a snobby New Yorker-way too thick a crust and the sauce(too heavy) tasted like it came out of a can-or a Polish chef made it-no Italian flavor at... More

This is a place you can bring kids to and not expect them to have stellar restaurant behavior. It's great pizza, Margarita ( if you so choose), appetizer, salads, etc. Great kids meal options and you won't leave feeling like you broke the bank. Who doesn't like mellow mushroom?

I hate to admit that I had a bad experience at this location recently. I came home disappointed and sent an email explaining my situation. The manager called me before 9am the next morning and by the time we hung up I was feeling better about the establishment. The place is quaint and the reviews are wonderful. When the opportunity...
