Pizza is not as good as other reviews claim, just average. Liked neither dough nor sauce & and found menu overpriced. The ingredients were fresh at least. If you like cheap pizza like Papa John's or Domino's then you will be satisfied here, but if you appreciate a finer quality, thiner pizza, then this place is not for you.

Great service, delicious pizza and hoagies. The price is reasonable for a college town. Food came out quick and staff was responsive to drink refills. The manager checked back several times to make sure we were enjoying our meal.

A group of my colleagues enjoyed a very good meal at Mellow Mushroom last week. The food was delicious, as always, and the young man who waited on us was absolutely wonderful. As a bonus, we were seated in the Scooby Bus!! What fun.

Went here after a football game for pizza with my son and a friend. Ordered the meat pizza which had a special name I forget. Though it took awhile to come out it was well worth the wait. Piping hot and super fresh toppings. Sauce was ample and had a nice zest to it. Crust was chewy and crispy. It... More

Really enjoyed our food and service. We had pretzels and pizza with beer. Cannot get any better. We went early and the crowds were lower and we got seated immediately. They also handled our peanut allergy with ease. We will be back.

We've enjoyed Mellow Mushroom in other locations, so we assumed this would be a great place to eat. We were wrong. The service, while cheerful, was lacking - we had to track down drinks and silverware and also exchange food when the wrong items were brought. Even worse, the food was DISGUSTING - the tomatoes on the garden salad were... More

My husband and I love Mellow Mushroom and visit one every chance we get. We were in town for a special occasion and talked our family into having our celebratory lunch there. My son, daughter and g'daughter were not to keen on the idea of a "pizza place" because, let's be honest, Chapel Hill does have some fine eateries. But... More

I've lived and visited many places all over the world including Italy, and I think Mellow Mushroom has the best crust. It's not greasy, as to many are. It's a lovely texture, and everyone I introduce to this pizza love it. They have very good toppings and will make them to your own personal liking. I've both eaten in the... More

We ate there on a family trip with teens. Very creative with the pizza varieties. We had the BBQ chicken and the Ceasars salad pizzas. Both were delicious. Hope to return soon.
