I almost always eat here before attending shows at DPAC across the street. I have never ordered anything that was less than delicious. The Gourmet White Pizza is a personal favorite as is the Portobello and Cheese Hoagie. The atmosphere is fun and laid back and the service is always quick and friendly. Enjoy!

My wife and daughter found this restaurant looking for gluten free pizza. I ordered one of their specialty shiitake pizza's (regular crust) and it was fantastic! My wife and daughter loved their pizza too. The salads are also creative and delicious. Our server Becca was very attentive and helpful.

I went here in order to get a pizza on gluten free crust. I never expect much when it comes to gluten free crust because lets face it... it's hit or miss. I was not disappointed whatsoever. Delicious pizza and they had a variety of pizzas they will make on the gluten free. The only part I was not pleased... More

Ok pizza. Best part is the size (huge pizzas for same prices as smaller ones around). Ok Wait staff. Prepare to remind for water, drinks, etc. I was glad to have lots of choices in pizza, but we had the vegetarian one and it was like we had raw veggies served on a crust with some melted cheese on it....

Good food. Great atmosphere. Staff was quick and friendly. Food was fresh and came out fast. The location is centrally located and a close walk to the baseball field.

Went before the game, severs were great & their recommendations were awesome! Only thing it kinda lacks is domestic draft beer selection. Our pie was huge and delicious.

We sometimes eat here before a Bulls game and it can get pretty hectic. The staff does a great job and our meals have always been just right (time & tastiness!). Just be prepared to wait some but it should be worth the wait!

We frequent the Mellow Mushroom when we are in Durham for ballgames! This year, we found that they have completely renovated the restaurant, inside and out!.....a great new look, and an enclosed patio for 'outside' dining. Great food...some of the best pizza ever !!!

We were in Durham for my son's college graduation. The commencement ceremony was a 9 in the morning and ran until a little after 11. As everyone filed out of the stadium to meet with family, we ended up in front of the Mellow Mushroom to meet my son. My other two teenagers left with my son to meet up... More
