Constantly good food.

I love their gluten-free pizza with bacon. There aren't a lot of places that offer a gluten-free pizza so this is usually where we end up for pizza. The pizza is constantly good. Nothing fancy. Just a good pizza. We always get takeout so I can't speak to the quality of the wait staff. I just... read more

It absolutely amazes me that half the reviews rate this place as excellent or good. The crust of the pizzas is thin, much like cardboard, except more difficult to cut. Faux Mediterranean pizza was bland before adding Parmesan and Red pepper flakes. Lighting is glaring, which brings out the terrible decor and the music is loud. Won't be visiting this... More

The pizza was good but a little to rich for my blood. A large pizza with 2 toppings and 2 pepsi was $32.34. I don't think a normal family could afford this place. The waiter was running the bar area and wauting tables in the restrauant. This was about 4:30 and then all of a sudden about 7 or 8... More

Saturday the pizza was wonderful. They really made our group feel comfortable. We had 20 in our group. You should really try it.

Four of us ordered the Slice and Salad. Salad was average to say the least. The pizza slice was a soggy piece of cardboard, with a miniscule amount of toppings. Service was good. This chain is trying to emulate a 60's diner, but with little success. Next time I'll try somewhere else to get a good pizza.

Decided to try this Pizza since we heard it was out of this world good. We phoned in a order for 2 pizzas: a medium Maui Wowie, and a large House Special. We also ordered a stuffed mushroom since it sounded good from the description. These items came to a total of $60.00. Arrive at the drive thru pick up... More

Ambiance is good, food is good, only thing I didn't like was having to stand in line to place my order. It was very disorganized and people who came after me were able to place their orders before mine.

Living in Chicago for five years and NYC for another 5 years let me eat a lot of pizza. I was forced to learn to make it myself. From the greasy drippy great street side of the 33 famous rays of NYC to the double crusted stuffed spinach, mushroom and onion topped with red sauce from Chicago. It blows my... More

The Mellow Mushroom is always a great place to visit. This location is fun, complete with a drive thru window. They hold trivia night on Tuesdays and the pizza is great! Difficult to turn into if coming from down town Lexington- busy road!
