This is one cool place to eat down off the Denton downtown square. They have every kind of pizza you can think or create. They make gluten free crusts if asked. They have a large variety of fresh cheeses, meats & veggies. They offer prrsonal size pizza or larger sizes for a group. The salads are fresh & healthy. Good... More

Our office went for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our waiter, JD, was the BEST! We really enjoyed the bayou bleu pizza, best I've had. The beer cheese dip for the large homemade pretzels is addicting. We also ordered a portabella appetizer that was extremely good. We will definitely be back!

Denton is an awesome town. When I am in Denton I expect to eat somewhere that is totally home grown and uniquely their own. The MM didn't disappoint. Fun atmosphere that caters to their young college crowd. Wine and beer bar with a good selection. Large menu. We all ordered the individual pizzas which were more than enough to fill... More

It's an interesting dining experience, with a unique interior, great back patio, and relatively fast service. The wait staff always seems to be different, and inexperienced. We stopped going about 6 months ago based on sub-par service and food for every visit over the years since it opened.

I was having a few brews with the fam at the bar when a veteran came in with a call in order that totaled $51 - only two pizzas. He asked the bar staff if they honored military discounts. Bar staff flippantly said "nope, sorry". That made me sick. Sad to see mellow mushroom won't our vets. It's only $5.10.... More

Great place to meet friends, the food here is really good with some unusual varieties of pizza. They have a nice bar with lots of draft beers and the service is always good.

We love MM. This one was decent, but we probably wouldn't go back. First of all, there's pretty much no parking. There isn't a parking lot. It's on a main street, inner city style, college kids everywhere, a few places to park right in front of it. We drove around a good 15 minutes just trying to find a place... More

It's not "New York Style Pizza" (our favorite) but it is good and tasty pizza. When we decide to dine out on pizza in Denton, we opt for Mellow Mushroom first. They have a great variety of beers, numerous appetizers and a wide menu of classic and specialty pizzas. If you have never been to Mellow Mushroom try this one,... More

A bunch of restaurants have moved into this old part of Denton. Most are over priced with spiced up food and prices. I found this place inline with the rest of its close by neighbors. The food was good but this style of restaurant is where the atmosphere ends and the chains begin. You can fins better values in town.... More
