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...

We like to visit this location when we go to events at the DPAC. Great family choice. Solid food, but the wait can get very long and the hostess staff at the front are not friendly. Appreciate that the menu offers gluten free options as my son has teen friends who are gluten free which can make finding a place... More

Great service, variety of pizzas, even gluten free crust. It's always a treat for our daughter when we can sit under one of the mushrooms at the special tables. Our server was very good and when I couldn't decide between two chicken pizzas she offered that I could have a pizza with a half of each. I didn't know that... More
