Mellow Mushroom: Downtown Greenville, SC
at 4:36 PM
Everything about this place screams 60s/70s. From the name of the restaurant itself, to the decor, to the names of the pizzas and even in some ways, the staff. It is just a fun, laid back, relaxed kind of place. If I could be so bold, I would liken it to being the "Ben and Jerry's" of pizza.
They have lots of beer to choose from (over 600!)...and its very cold. Which is important when you've been wandering downtown Greenville for hours in the July summer heat. They have some unique pizza topping combos (Thai Dye, anyone?) or you can create your own which is what we did. Full pepperoni, add sausage to half.
Their calzones and hoagies are a bit more mainstream as far as ingredients and titles, but they looked amazing too. If you're really hungry...you can add an appetizer or some Magic Mushroom Soup to your meal. Or if you just got done at the gym...they have salads for you too.
Mellow Mushroom is a great place for singles, couples, families, groups...you name it. It's fun, they have cold beer and excellent pizza. We will be back...I think you should go too!
