Mellow Mushroom wasn't a native Durham restaurant, but it was delicious none the less! The only problem was that it was pretty greasy compared to other times I had been to Mellow Mushroom. We went on a weekday evening around 6pm and had no problem getting a table for a party of 3.

Local favorite it seems, but definitely go early for dinner or else you'll be sitting around with a beeper. Service could be better but this can be easily over looked by how delicious this pizza is. Some of the best I've ever had.

Had to try this Mellow Mushroom since we eat at the one in Spartanburg on a regular basis. The decor is still groovy, hippy style and rather loud music. The gluten free pizza was terrible, a very hard crust and little flavor. The House Special is still special but the meatball sandwich was nearly tasteless. All in all we won't... More

This place serves consistently great pizza. The crust is buttery and delicious, and there's a great variety of toppings and combos to choose from. The House Special is a winner, though the Mega Veggie is my favorite - delicious mound of veggies and tofu that's surprisingly creamy and delicious. I've also seen their gluten free service, which was very good.... More

I had not been to Mellow Mushroom in a while. Had a pizza there a few nights ago and tried the new apple bacon and turkey and if was a fun, new rendition of a sandwich classic on a pizza.

Not for everyone, it is laid back and casual. Love the selection of beers. College kids host for the most part, try to get an older person, they actually know the beer selection and menu.

Best pizza in town! Often a wait for dinner but well worth it. Can order custom pizza or part different toppings.

After hearing so much about this restaurant, I was expecting much better. What we got was a pizza with a tasteless crust and, overall, lacking flavor. My son got a dessert, not too sure if it was a mousse, but it was really bad, like your 12 year old daughter made it bad. Service and atmosphere were fine.
