Pizza is not as good as other reviews claim, just average. Liked neither dough nor sauce & and found menu overpriced. The ingredients were fresh at least. If you like cheap pizza like Papa John's or Domino's then you will be satisfied here, but if...More

Great service, delicious pizza and hoagies. The price is reasonable for a college town. Food came out quick and staff was responsive to drink refills. The manager checked back several times to make sure we were enjoying our meal.

A group of my colleagues enjoyed a very good meal at Mellow Mushroom last week. The food was delicious, as always, and the young man who waited on us was absolutely wonderful. As a bonus, we were seated in the Scooby Bus!! What fun.

Thanks for the great review. That sounds like the Mighty Meaty- always a crowd pleaser. Football season is over, but come in to watch the Heels hit the basketball court. See you soon!

Really enjoyed our food and service. We had pretzels and pizza with beer. Cannot get any better. We went early and the crowds were lower and we got seated immediately. They also handled our peanut allergy with ease. We will be back.

We've enjoyed Mellow Mushroom in other locations, so we assumed this would be a great place to eat. We were wrong. The service, while cheerful, was lacking - we had to track down drinks and silverware and also exchange food when the wrong items were...More
