It's an interesting dining experience, with a unique interior, great back patio, and relatively fast service. The wait staff always seems to be different, and inexperienced. We stopped going about 6 months ago based on sub-par service and food for every visit over the years since it opened.

I was having a few brews with the fam at the bar when a veteran came in with a call in order that totaled $51 - only two pizzas. He asked the bar staff if they honored military discounts. Bar staff flippantly said "nope, sorry". That made me sick. Sad to see mellow mushroom won't our vets. It's only $5.10.... More

Great place to meet friends, the food here is really good with some unusual varieties of pizza. They have a nice bar with lots of draft beers and the service is always good.

We love MM. This one was decent, but we probably wouldn't go back. First of all, there's pretty much no parking. There isn't a parking lot. It's on a main street, inner city style, college kids everywhere, a few places to park right in front of it. We drove around a good 15 minutes just trying to find a place... More

I'm sorry you had such trouble finding a parking space, and that service wasn't excellent. I also apologize that our pizza failed to impress you. I'd love to speak with you more about your visit...

It's not "New York Style Pizza" (our favorite) but it is good and tasty pizza. When we decide to dine out on pizza in Denton, we opt for Mellow Mushroom first. They have a great variety of beers, numerous appetizers and a wide menu of classic and specialty pizzas. If you have never been to Mellow Mushroom try this one,... More

A bunch of restaurants have moved into this old part of Denton. Most are over priced with spiced up food and prices. I found this place inline with the rest of its close by neighbors. The food was good but this style of restaurant is where the atmosphere ends and the chains begin. You can fins better values in town.... More

This place is expensive and I have had better pizza at say anyplace. Just not worth the hassle of the down town parking issues!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for our restaurant.  It sounds like our pizza wasn't a style to your liking & we're certainly disappointed to hear that.  We do have an array of other offerings, from hoagies, calzones, soups & salads, made with uber-fresh ingredients, that you might find more to your liking.  We also offer 1/2...

What a great HH. 1/2 price appetizers beer specials and more. Pretzel's with beer cheese are off the hook. Pizza's are definitely worth trying. We stop in about twice a month and are never disappointed.

Although it's a chain pizza place, we think it has the best pizza in Denton. Great Happy Hour, also. It has a laid back/hippie themed atmosphere so be prepared to wait awhile for your food. Fave pizza is the Holy Shiitake and the artichoke dip is delish!
