They burn the crust on the pizza – We love the Mellow Mushroom on Glenwood in Raleigh and were happy to have one closer to us. The first time we tried pizza at this restaurant, they burned the crust. OK everyone deserves a second chance. The second time they burned the crust again, so we explained to the waitress and they fixed another one. Burned again. We ordered the fetta cheese with sundried tomatoes, but another pizza with different ingredients was ordered at our table and that crust was fine. Did we get an apology, NO. Were we offered a no charge on the burned pizza, NO. I will NOT go back to Mellow Mushroom in Durham. Upon trying to contact the management later, no response. They just don't care!!
Best Pizza Ever – I have been looking for a great pizza place since moving to Raleigh 2 years ago, and I am happy to say that I have finally found one! Mellow Mushroom was not only the best pizza I have had in Raleigh, but it is the best pizza I have ever eaten. What a find!
They are always very busy, so it is hard to find a parking spot and it takes a while to get your food. However, it is well worth the wait.
Fave lunch spot – We have a Mellow Mushroom in Raleigh, so I was excited when one opened in Durham near my office. Me and my co-workers eat lunch there several times a week. Great salads and calzones! I always get the chef salad and house calzone and have not been disappointed yet. The veggies are always fresh and the Espranza salad dressing is sooo good! Lunch is busy, but the service is fast. Makes my lunch break much more enjoyable!
Best ballpark restaurant! – I go to a lot of Durham Bulls games, and the Mellow Mushroom is the best place to eat and hangout before or after the game. My friends and I eat dinner there before the games, and after the games we stop by for drinks on their patio. They are pretty busy on game days, but the food is worth it. Definitely my new favorite Durham hangout!
Awesome pizza! – I ate at the Mellow Mushroom this past weekend and it was the best pizza I've ever had! We sat outside and really enjoyed the patio area. Our service was quick and friendly and the food was delicious. We had the Funky Chicken pizza, which I highy recommend.
Another plus for Durham – Although I live in Raleigh I have been to the Mellow in Durham twice now. Once for lunch with clients and now before a Bulls game. Even though they were extremely busy during both my visits, the service and food was great. We sat outside both times and even though the patio is not as nice as Raleigh it is one of the best in Durham. It is definately an added bonus having the Mellow Mushroom next to the Bulls before and after the games.
User review by stickers – The pizza is unique--the calzones are tasty and the servers are ALWAYS friendly. There are toppings I have yet to find elsewhere-- like gorgonzola cheese or tempah. Yum. The calzones are HUGE so its better to share. The american tobacco distract is a really great location, and there is ample parking in the garage next door. They have a lot of outdoor seating as well.
Best Pizza in Durham! – Great pizza! Convenient to Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Restaurant was a bit hot, but food and service was good.
Cruddy pizza dough, slow service – Why can't a restaurant change ever make decent pizza? There's so much corn meal in their dough it's like eating pizza with sand in it! So far I've been there 3 times and each time it's taken well over 1/2 hour to get your pizza after ordering it.. A pizza takes 8 minutes max to cook! Definitely don't go if you have more than 4 people in your group....all of their tables are for 2 or 4 guest except 2.
