Feeling Mellow

When we got home from Grimmwood we were in the mood for pizza so we headed downtown to Mellow Mushroom.

When we were young and dating, we sometimes ate at the very first Mellow Mushroom that was located in downtown Atlanta.  It was in a little building that took walk up orders only. Picnic tables were available for sitting down to your pizza or you could take it with you. Times surely have changed in the Mellow Mushroom world. Who would have known that little establishment would grow like it has?

Interesting wall art!  I like the wire basket light fixture.

But here is what we came for...

We always get a large pizza so we can have two meals for the price of one.

Our favorite pizza place in Atlanta was Everybodys on the square at Emory University. It went out of business when the owners retired so Mellow Mushroom is now our go to pizza.  So glad that we have one here in Decatur.

No Mellow Mushroom around here! If there was, it would be our go to place. We are hoping the new place in town will be a good one.

That pizza looks amazing! And isn't it amazing how that little walk up pizza shop turned into such a large estalishment? They certainly must be doing pizza right.

Arlene, that pizza looks so delicious! I'd be tempted to eat it all at once!

We got a Mellow Mushroom a couple of years ago. We went a couple of weeks after they opened. The service was terrible and our sandwiches weren't that good. We did not try the pizza but just haven't gone back since our first bad experience. We do love pizza and may have to try it again one of these days. Your pizza sure looks good!!

Best best food ever-pizza-thin and crispy cheese with pineapple-right am a vegetarian-but homemade old time Chef Boy R Dee can't be beat!!
