I don't know who is designing your pizzas, but whoever chose to add Montamore cheese to the Holy Shitake Pie certainly made my day. We cannot buy Montamore in eastern North Carolina, however, I bought it in Florida because I know it's one of the most outstanding of the Sartori cheeses (all of their cheese is unique and delicious). I shared it with friends and now am telling them about Mellow Mushroom's pizza. The Holy Shitake Pie is: Olive oil and garlic base, Shitake, button and Portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions, mozzarella and Montamore cheeses. Drizzled with garlic aioli and black truffle oil. Garnished with fresh chives and shaved Parmesan. Talk about elegant! It's absolutely delicious, too. My husband and I each had a slice and a half for lunch and look forward to the leftovers.

I've been going to mm since the mid 90's in various cities. They have always had very good pizza, but it has consistently been a tad pricey for what you get. And the menu gives the impression of trying too hard to be "cutting edge"--if some dufus on the west coast comes up with a sardine, peanut butter and potato salad pizza on Monday, these guys will try to have one on the menu by Friday. They really do have some bizarre combinations. (Guess I'm too much of a traditionalist.) That being said, my hat is off to them for their selection of gluten-free pizzas and beers.

We arrived on Sunday morning a few minutes before noon. There were only three or four other parties in the place. Service was prompt, and my granddaughter's kiddie pizza arrived after 15 minutes. The adult pizza inexplicably took another 15 minutes, making for a 30 minute wait, which tested everyone's patience. The server was not the problem, as she was very attentive, and the pizza was delivered scalding hot. It appeared the kitchen was the issue. The concrete floor and glass windows make for a noisy environment.

Overall, I'll be back when I'm in the mood for mm pizza. But for a regular pizza meal, I'll go to a "normal" pizza joint where the pizza is 30% cheaper and they don't have a shrimp and andouille pie on the menu.

The food especially the hummus and pizza are fantastic! Service was great and when my daughter wanted to talk to the manager about a community program he was very helpful.

The atmosphere is overly noisy with loud music. We often eat at another Mellow Mushroom in another town and they do not have the "boom boom" music at such loud levels.

The beer selection is very good and the food is acceptable.
