After living in the area for 4 years, my wife and I finally made it to Mellow Mushroom which is continually ranked (not sure who votes?) as the #1 pizza restaurant in Asheville. I had a Luau Pizza (ham, pineapple, mushrooms, tons of cheese, onion, etc) and wife had some funky pizza with pesto swirls all thru it. We both loved what we got. ...Know their claim to fame is use of "spring water" to make their crust. Don't know if that is what made the difference or not, but the crust was amazing. While we usually leave the bland outer crust, we each ate all of this. Mine had parmesan cheese granuals all over it, so it had lots of flavor. Will definately be back to this funcky place. Is worth going just to see all the decorations (remember this is Asheville which is a whole city full of hippies). Our two speciality 10" pizzas, with two fountain drinks was about $30 (and to this add tax/tip), so a little pricy. But it was delicious and we'll get a 2nd meal with the leftovers.

Quirky is a great word to describe this restaurant! I love Mellow and eat there often. It has great food and an interesting atmosphere. Our service was awesome but I felt a little preppy compared to the rest of the patrons... but who cares- the food is awesome for a great price!

We had lunch at the Mellow Mushroom in Asheville, NC on Easter Sunday. The location was great, right in the heart of downtown Asheville. With its large front patio seating, the people watching was superb. We ordered a starter of the warm pretzels and they were delicious. We also ordered a Greek salad, build your own salad, pepperoni pizza and the wonderful Magical Mystery Tour pizza. Everything we ordered was great! The surprise came when I went to the bathroom and got to see the indoors. The restaurant is full of all kinds of memorabilia and wacky knick knacks. Had we sat indoors, as many people chose to do even though it was a beautiful day, we would have been entertained by the interesting decor. We won't hesitate to go back there on future trips but will stick with the people watching patio. Fun!

Being from Asheville, I love the atmosphere and people who work here. It is always fun and you never know what to expect. The last time we were there, they were out of feta when we order, which was pretty disappointing. However, the delivery came while they were preparing the food and they added the feta to our pizza and sandwiches free of charge. And of course, so much fun!
