“So glad to have found this place!”
Review of Mellow Mushroom

Mellow Mushroom
Ranked #1,082 of 2,427 Restaurants in Charlotte
Price range: $10 - $30
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: Established in 1974. Mellow is a state of mind, a culture, a way of being. Our mission is to provide delicious food in a fun and creative environment. We are the originators of hand tossed, stone baked classic southern pizza. Our spring water crust is unique and flavorful, and all our pies are made with high quality, fresh ingredients. Our philosophy is to elevate with a higher order of pizza. We are the originator of Classic Southern Pizza, & our unique and flavorful crust is a true original. We began from humble roots, born out of the free-wheelin' hippie culture of the 1970s. The idea back then was the same as it is now: to make the most delicious, crave-able slice of pizza on the planet. The Mellow founders dreamed of a world where happiness could be found in the simplest things - like a mouthwatering slice of pizza and an ice-cold beer.

So my wife and I have always loved Mellow Mushroom, we were super bummed when they pulled out of Charlotte years ago, and it's been great to see them coming back. While we love the Ballantyne location, it's far from where we live, and typically it's way crowded, and because of that the service is sometimes spotty. This was a gem of a find for us. Not only is this place not overly crowded, but the service was great and it seemed like the food came out faster than what we were accustomed to at the Ballantyne location. Same great Pizza (We always get the Red Skin Potato Pie). Their crust is one of a kind, and the potato pie is just an awesome way to have our cheat day from our low carb lifestyle. Love the MM, and so glad to have a 2nd/better location in our area!

This pzza chain has a decent menu with good sized portions at a reasonable price. Our waitress was very attentive and the order was accurate. This location has decent parking and is fairly close to Queens University if you're going there for a visit.

I love Mellow Mushroom and have been to several throughout the country but this one is great. They have an old school bus that you can eat in which is really cool. Also, our pizza came out a little burnt (but it was totally fine) and the manager was so sweet and gave us another pizza for free. Great food, great service, great times! :)

We went this week to this restaurant to try pizza and wings. We found the place lively and good for family eating as we found kids enjoying the meal on many tables. There was a truck inside the restaurant which had tables inside the truck body for eating.There was also a bar for you to sit at. There was a place to sit outside in open also but there was long wait. So we sat inside. We ordered tortilla soup, jerk wings and Thai dye pizza. While the soup was good and normal as we expected, however the wings tasted so fresh and different. We finished it very fast. The pizza was gluten free and made with whole wheat. The pizza taste was good,and service was good too. I would recommend one to go and try pizza there. I hope to go there again and try something new next time.

This place is by far the best pizza I've ever had. The staff was AMAZING which made the time even better. We've gone twice since we've been in town and I wish they had these in San Diego! Very delicious!!
