As a vegetarian there are some places that just don't have many options for you, but mellow mushroom has you covered. Instead of meat you can add jerk tofu, curry tofu, or tempeh to any of their creative pizzas. We had the chicken mole (replaced with tempeh) pizza and it was fabulous! They also have some NC native beers on tap as well as some others. It is a great atmosphere- right on the american tobacco campus and the outdoor bar even overlooks one of the waterfalls. It was a great meal in a great place

We had a long wait after which we were seated. Our pizza was very mediocre--not crispy nor particularly tasty. Outside dining was nice.

While there are quite a selection of pre-show restaurants near the DPAC and DBAP, I continue to magnet back to the Mellow Mushroom for its easy in easy out, great food and excellent service. Their brick oven pizza is bit different, so if you're looking for Pizza Hut or sicilian type, you may want to opt for something other than pizza. But I love the crunchy crust and the fresh toppings! And while I usually love meat on my pizzas, at MM I tend to go for the veggies because they know how to put them on so that they come out fab and not mushy. The wait staff has always been helpful and quick as long as you let them know what your timeline is. If you have an event to get to, don't be shy. Tell them the time you need to be leaving so they can make sure you are on time!

Good place to catch a bite before a Bulls game.

The pizza was fine, although the wait time was a little long. Great list of craft beers and local selections. Again, not terrible, but not all that memorable either.

OK-Forget the overall chain restaurant BORING decor(if you can), and the large echo industrial ceilings-the pizza is what you came for isn't it? Why? I did not like the pizza-I must be a snobby New Yorker-way too thick a crust and the sauce(too heavy) tasted like it came out of a can-or a Polish chef made it-no Italian flavor at all! Maybe people in Durham are use to bad pizza! ha
