“The Best Pizza in the Triangle”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have been to the Mellow Mushroom in Durham on many occasions. As a result this review is based upon very many dining experiences. The food is great and the staff are the best, great people with a good sense of humor and customer friendly.
We love the pizza, they all taste delicious! The salads and sandwiches are very good as well. The food prices are all very reasonable and so you can dine with your family and have it be very affordable.
The atmosphere is cool as well. Very kid friendly.
Overall, this is by far our favorite pizza place in town! I highly recommend it!

“Fresh pizza, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Set in the Tobacco District of Durham, Mellow Mushroom is a fun place to eat. The pizza ( so many kinds) is fresh and tasty. Nice atmosphere to bring a group to and have a casual meal. Good place to bring kids, too.

“Pricey and almost worth it!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nice vibe when you walk in!
Told it was going to be 15 min but were seated in 10.
Ordered a seasonal draft, although "dude" really didn't have much insight except for it's name (which I don't remember!). It was cold and served promptly after pouring.
We ordered the Maui Wowie pizza (Med). Yummy!!!!
The chicken wasn't over cooked and there was a nice balance of ingredients. One didn't overwhelm any of the others. It is not tomato based, so asked for a side of red sauce. It came out piping hot. Nice touch!
I was a bit taken back when our bill came to $26. For a medium pizza, a beer (on special), and a soda.
Staff was curteous and pleasant.
Restrooms were clean and well-stocked.
Definitely worth a return when the Pizza Coffers are refilled.

All the Mellow Mushroom Pizza places in North Carolina are great. Pizza is fresh and lots to eat. Very kid friendly place and can accommodate large groups very well. No doubt we will return.
