Chi town approval.
This is the best place my wife and I have found since moving from Chicago. They are quick when not too busy, and although I have had better pizza, not regionally. I do not go anywhere else in Durham because there is not point. I do suggest going on a weeknight when the Bulls are not in town.
tasty food, tasty beer.
Delicious food, great selection and lots of vegetarian options. Their service is quick and friendly. Their beer selection is excellent. It gets a bit crowded at lunchtime, but is worth the wait.
Great service, great pizza.
We went on a Saturday night--it was a little busy, not bad. The service was great, the beer was excellent and the food was the best we've had in Durham for the price so far!! Highly recommended.
Kosmic Karma Pizza Rocks!.
Ate here last night--best pizza I've ever had! My table ordered the large kosmic karma pizza (red sauce pizza with veggies and drizzled with pesto). It was outstanding! Also had a great waitress and didn't have to wait for a table. Definitely eating here again!
Best pizza in Durham!!!.
Love, love, love the Mellow Mushroom!! The pizzas are incredible, especially the Gourmet White. They also have a great beer selection and awesome location. I can't wait til spring, so I can eat on their patio before baseball games. You can't get a better pizza or location in Durham!
Don't trust their pagers.
We waited 45 minutes instead of 15 minutes only to find out that our pager didn't work. Management did not offer apology...we thus had an additonal 20 minutes for our pizza to be served. If you have to wait, stand there and don't leave. We went to the bar so we were in the building the whole time but they still couldn't find us even though they paged us "repeatedly" ... and we were indeed literally 20 feet away.
The pizza at this Mellow Mushroom, over 3-4 visits, has been like the pizza at any Mellow Mushroom. It's pretty good, a little above average. The location, for Durham, is pretty great! Outside seating overlooks the water feature at the AT building, and the American Tobacco building itself is pretty cool - what a great renovation! This is a great place for groups, kids, or a pre or post- ballpark meal.
