This review would've been 2 stars if it weren't for the above and beyond service we received from the manager, Star. I made a big to go order for a dinner I was providing, including a few vegetarian meals. Ordering it over the phone went great, I forget the girls' name I spoke to but she read the long and, I admit, convoluted order (damn vegetarians :p) back to me verbatim. When I arrived to pick up the food, I was told it had not even been cooked yet, so was already frustrated. Anyway around 50 minutes after I placed the order it was ready and I started the nearly 60 mile journey to the venue, only to find on arriving that all the veggie burgers I had ordered were meat. Mind you, the venue was out in the boonies with no food places around, and certainly nothing vegetarian. I was beyond irritated as all the vegetarians could eat were the potato wedges that came with the burgers. I called MM and in the end after explaining all this to Star, the manager on duty, she was extremely polite and offered to refund my order as well as send me a gift card, which I received in the mail a few days later. Thank you Star! Also, since I am not vegetarian I gave up my cheese pizza to the vegetarians and I had one of the meat burgers (a new menu item)- and damn they were good. I come here all the time with my family because of the vegetarian options, and this experience could have soured me on this place but all was saved by Star.

Way too expensive considering how mediocre the pizza was. Seriously, the lackluster stuff served at Cici's and Pizza Patron are superior to this. Plus, the service was super-slow and my order did not arrive at my table as I ordered it. I don't know how this place stays in business considering how pricey and inefficient it is.

Ordered a pizza for pickup. I arrived early but the pizza was cold. It looked like it was made a few days before. Cheese fell off of the slice when I picked it up, and looked practically inedible. Asked for a refund, which they gave me, but not before the manager made sure to make a sassy remark to me and my girlfriend, despite the fact that I was about as calm as humanly possible about the whole thing. The whole try hard stoner vibe doesn't work, and neither do the employees. Who the hell wears a denim vest to work? So yeah, maybe it's good if you get a few beers along with it, but 20 bucks for a cold cheese pizza just isn't worth it.

It is lunch time on a gloomy Sunday afternoon when I enter denton's prestigious Mellow Mushroom location. We are immediately seated and informed by our waitress that the kitchen is currently staffed by one employee. The lone martyr, waiting to be crucified by the flood of customers. And indeed, he was. As I waited I read Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" to lift my spirits during this trial. One hour later, our single pizza arrived in all of it's glory, and I must say it was delicious. I admired the attempt to make up the wait time with complimentary desserts, but even the tiny shared key lime pie could not heal the pangs of hunger that our table suffered. The staff were all very kind, but there is no excuse for an understaffed restaurant of this size during the lunch hour. TLDR: long wait time

Love this place- Been about 6 times. I suggest the Holy Shiitake Pizza, or mushroom soup with a side of cheese bread to dunk. I am an illustrator and have on several occasions sat in a booth with friends doodling for several hours- the workers were always courteous and told us we could stay as long as we liked.
