Looking for a Slice!
The Mellow Mushroom was originally established in Atlanta, GA in 1974 but have since branched out with locations throughout the south. I stumbled across the restaurant while wandering around Asheville NC and thought it would be a good place to take a break and grab some lunch.
The restaurant is definitely bigger on the inside than I would have thought. I’m more of a patio seating kinda guy so I opted for a table outside so I could enjoy the Spring weather.
This is more like it. Definitely more my speed. Very laid back and relaxing.
I chose to go with the 10″ Mighty Meaty Pizza. It’s a red sauce base pizza with Mozzarella, Pepperoni, Sausage, Ground Beef, Ham, and Applewood Smoked Bacon. Yum! I’m not much a fan of the Chicago style pizza but I can appreciate a good New York Style Pizza! This pizza was very hearty, very tasting. Definitely better than any of the big generic name chain pizzerias out side and pretty high up on my list of great pizza.
You ever get that feeling that you’re being watched?
The Mellow Mushroom is very eclectic to say the least. It has a good, fun, quirky vibe to it. Great place to meet friends for drinks and some grub. Being located in the heart of downtown Asheville is nice since it’s so close to everything.
