Has the best GF crust around (we have had almoat all of it in Raleigh and Cary) Little low on the toppings for the price, but the crust is worth it.
Separate GF pizza menu and the pizza was delicious!! Can only get medium size so will cost you about $20 - so go hungry or expect leftovers!
I got very sick after eating here. Based on previous reviews, others seem to have had good experiences so maybe it was my server/that specific kitchen staff. I told my server it was an allergy. Thus, I recommend anyone eating here to be very explicit and repeat that they have an allergy several times. I was very sick immediately after eating at this location, but have been totally fine after eating at others.
Ate here the other night after convincing the boyfriend to try it with me. The server not only offered to re-clean the table upon hearing that we were going to be ordering gf. But even asked how severe my reaction may be with cross contamination. Was pretty impressed with that and him not treating me like another fad-dieter. He took it seriously. Upon reassuring him that I wouldn't die, just get sick later on. We ordered our pizza. Now we got the gf, dairy free (Daiya cheese is offered here since I also happen to have a dairy intolerance) Didn't get sick later, much to my surprise. It is a pizza place after all so I was skeptical. At this particular location they have a separate area that it is prepared in according to the menu in store as well as their online gf menu. Reading their online gf menu before we went, they seem to be more responsible than most restaurants around me are which was nice.
Not all Mellow Mushrooms have the same level of quality, but this one is exceptional. The GF pizza is separately prepared and handled, as it should be in all Mello Mushrooms. But this particular restaurant actually makes a great pizza. We've had the Mighty Meaty, Veg Out, and Cheese pizzas. They were all delicious and harkened us back to our pre-GF days. We always ask for extra cheese, and I recommend it. The management gets kudos for extra attention to our satisfaction !!
They do a great job of avoiding cross-contamination in their kitchen and the pizza is good - it has a bit of a hippy taste to it (you can tell they use sprouts and other veggies in the crust) but I like it a lot. Deducting a point because they never seem to know which toppings are OK for gfree. I've eaten the all meat pizza several times and not had an issue.
great gf options and come on... its pizza.
Gluten free pizza is pretty good. We've been several times with our daughter-in-law and the servers are great, they really take care to make sure the order is correct.
Great experience! The downtown Raleigh Mellow Mushroom uses a separate container (with a lid) for gf silverware and plates and even salt + pepper shakers. They asked if it was a diet preference or food allergy. There is an extra 15 minute process they go through in the back to ensure it is gluten free and no cross contamination. Worth waiting (not too long.) The pizza was delicious! Crust was good. They even let us do half and half of two different pizzas. Gluten free beer too. Great experience!!
Great pizza but way over priced!
very unfriendly and unwilling to answer questions and help out. the crust was soggy and not very good. on top if that the table was covered in gluten crumbs that they wouldn't clean off. got sick. not q pleasant experience
No offense, but this place was a joke for the price. My teenager has Celiac's. Pizza wasn't that great and for $22+ it wasn't worth the rest of our meals to sit through. She said it compared to Udi's frozen. Our bill for a family of 4 was right around $120+ with appetizers and drinks, not including tip. None of us finished our food due to taste. My 7 year old wanted just cheese pizza and it came on garlic bread, which she hates and was not advertised as that on children's menu. Our service was the other issue. It took TWO HOURS and most of the time we were flagging our waitress asking her for things versus her anticipating need: drinks, plates picked up, orders placed and not yet received. We all got our meals at different times. We were on patio, therefore out of mind out of sight, I guess. This place is not worth the $$$.
I have been here several times, and my rating is an average of all of the visits. This location has a small, dedicated space that they use to prepare the pizzas. I have never gotten sick from the pizzas. The gluten free pizzas are really good if they are served just out of the oven. (The gluten free pizzas typically come out at a very different time than other pizzas at your table.) If the gluten free pizza is rushed/"flown"due to a mistake or a possible contamination issue, the pizza is not very good.
Definitely a hit or miss type of place. The actually care they take in preventing contamination seems to depend on how busy the restaurant is. And it's super expensive for a thin, crusty pizza.
Extremely pleased! We ordered take out -!My non gf son ordered a small pizza and I ordered the gf veg pizza. When we picked up the pizza left w a large and small box/ my son said the large was mine... Couldn't be, he must've missed heard.... Nope! He was right the gf was the bigger pizza! Thin crust but larger diameter than you typical gf. I'm eating it now, and it tastes delicious. I feel 99.9% confident this is safe for Celiacs- of course I'll modify this post if anything changes tonight!
We had dinner here tonight. We have eaten at many Mellow Mushrooms in different states and never had an issue. We ordered two gluten free pizzas (cheese and house special). They were both wonderful and our celiac daughter had no issues and didn't get sick. We dined with some friends who aren't gluten free and our pizzas were brought out separate from their food. Will eat at this location again.
One of the best GF pizza crusts I've had. The menu explains how they prepare their GF pizza, so it lets you feel safe. They also have GF beer & delicious salads. We came here twice in two days because no other GF-friendly place was open for lunch.
Unfortunately, as a Celiac, I cannot recommend this specific Mellow. First time I ate here, I was sick before leaving the restaurant. Second time around, sick halfway home. Both times, I specified that I had Celiac, and asked if it would be prepped and cooked safely. I was assured it would be. My digestive tract says otherwise. The Raleigh MM, however, I've had zero issue with (to date).
I have eaten their twice without any problems. I always get a salad since I cannot have any grains at all. Staff has been knowledgeable and helpful. My kids have eaten their GFDF pizza with their vegan cheese and really enjoyed it without problems despite previous reviews on here. I suspect they have made positive changes based on previous feedback. Not the safest location for those who are most sensitive but it is a workable option.
Gf pizza was delicious! Friendly staff.
Mellow Mushroom now has a gluten free menu and the crust is fantastic. You can get one of several speciality pizzas or build your own with gluten-free toppings. There is also an in-depth description on the menu of the type of crust used and their handling practices to ensure there is no cross-contamination i.e. cook changes gloves and apron, special pan is used so crust isn't in contact with stone, and gluten-free ingredients are kept separate from gluten items. The server seemed well-versed in what was required. The restaurant seemed to really take celiac needs seriously.
