Customer Reviews

Great place with a great atmosphere and amazing food! I got a “Wild In Havana” at it was amazing! I would recommend it to anyone who has a slightly adventurous palate. I got a small which was plenty of food for an adult male. He server was a little slow, and that was noticeable since it wasn’t particularly busy. I’d go again, and recommend it to anyone in a heart beat!

We sat outside on an absolutely beautiful night and had some of the yummiest pizza ever. The pizza may have been my favorite food the entire trip. We had the potato pizza without bacon and it was perfectly vegetarian. Delicious crust! Service was good.

While waking on Mesa Road, we needed to stop and get some food and water to escape the heat. We stopped in at Mellow Mushroom and the server there was on point. He knew we weren’t from here by how much water both of us were drinking and he must have filled our waters 4-5 times. He even gave us to-go cups of water which was fantastic service. After hearing his recommendation on the thin crust, we opted for a custom large thin crust pizza (1/2 & 1/2) with one side containing pepperoni and the other containing chicken, ricotta & caramelized onions. We waited for a bit, but the pizza came out fresh and had a great crunch to it. The crust itself is not your standard white crust. The stone-baked pizza came out crunchy to the bite while also delivering on flavor. The pizza was well-done and had minimal flop. Overall the thin crust itself was the steel of the show but the toppings were plentiful. The ricotta was creamy and complemented the pizza without being overwhelming. The caramelized onions and chicken balanced it out to create a great slice. Very happy we went with the waiter’s recommended thin crust. One thing to note though is that their marinara sauce is on the sweeter and tangy side. Good thing to note when it comes to finding the ideal toppings! My wife enjoyed the standard pepperoni and she enjoyed her slices. Overall for $35 after tip, it was a place to stop in for dinner and would recommend to others when near Arizona State University.

First time visiting Mellow Mushroom. We ordered the meat pizza. It was a carnivore’s dream. The crust was thin. It could’ve had a bit more sauce, but it was still delicious. Our server, Ian, was nice but didn’t seem interested. That’s why 4 stars instead of 5. I’d happily return.
