Whether it's lunch or dinner this place offers great food and great service. They offer slices of NY style pizza, salads and sub sandwiches. Prices are reasonable and service is excellent

Just outside of Emory, this is my kids favorite mellow mushroom in Atlanta. Big outdoor seating area. Inside has a few tvs and a small bar. Discounts on beer when Atlanta sports teams on. Typical menu. Worth a stop

I have enjoyed Mellow Mushroom for years. This particular restaurant seemed extra special. The salad and pizza were delicious. They have a yummy Thai pizza as well. I was impressed by the management and wait staff.
