Mellow Mushroom pizza

Fantastic. Mellow Mushroom is opening a new location on Cary Parkway.

There are a lot of great restaurants in the Triangle. For every type of night you want to have, whether quiet and comfortable, romantic and inspired or loud and creative, you can find an eatery to match. However, there’s no real mood to match the Mellow Mushroom, a Georgia-based pizza and beer chain that was started by some students from Georgia Tech and has a huge following in North Carolina. Each location is individually-owned and franchisees are encouraged to be creative with the type of atmosphere they establish. As long as its, well, different.

With a couple of locations in the area already, one in Durham at the American Tobacco Complex and the other in Downtown Raleigh on Peace and Glenwood, the Mellow Mushroom has an established regional clientele. Finally, we can add Cary to the list.

For an idea of how well liked this restaurant has become, consider that the September 8 opening of the Fayetteville, NC location became the highest grossing success in the company’s 27-year history.

It doesn’t get any more simple than craft beer and pizza. But it’s the variety of toppings and unique atmosphere that makes Mellow Mushroom somewhat challenging to classify. Still, who really cares how you pin it down? The point is that it’s a great place to go after work, during work or on a Sunday afternoon.

As of this posting, the opening date is set for September 26. Restaurant openings can be tricky sometimes, so stay tuned to the location’s website for more information. Meanwhile, have a look at the pizza menu. Rest assured, it’s going to be packed.

    My daughter headed over there two nights ago on the first night it was open. She said it was busy but fantastic and service was great!

    Glad to have another fun family friendly restaurant so close to home. We will be heading over there on a regular basis!
