menu is confusing, no GF appetizers, first thing they try to do is give you booze, been there twice with no GF dough available. Could not get order right, after waitress explained menu and we made choices we still got wrong pizzas.

I felt very safe eating there. The menu even has a statement about the precautions they take for gluten free and how the staff is trained.

Really enjoyed my pizza and salad. They were very careful with cross contamination in preparing my food. Can't wait to go back.

My daughter began a gf/df diet almost 5 weeks ago, and she was really wanting pizza again. We stopped in on the way to our movie and really enjoyed our meal. The menu lists each item that is gluten free and has dairy free vegan cheeze. There was a bit of sticker shock to get the 10 inch gluten free pizzas with simple toppings but for an occasional treat for my 14yo, it’s worth it. She also loved the music, decor, and the overall vibe.

Yaaaaaaasssssss. Knowledgeable Af. Pizza is LYFE. They have designated cooking stuff. They also serve meridian hive beer ( also lyfe) which is GF

Very good, but still a very thin crust pizza & very pricey. We ordered take out instead of dining in, which saved on the wait time & an even larger bill.

So happy to have found this place while traveling. Great pizza! I had the House Special and was not disappointed. So great to feel like a normal person and go out for pizza. Great flavor and texture. Friendly environment. Good value.

This place is amazing! I ordered a dairy free, gluten free pizza and it was delicious. I didn't get sick! I will definitely be back.

One of the best GF pizzas I've ever had! Mellow Mushroom offers plenty of GF toppings, as well as vegan cheese - a huge plus for me! The pizza is a bit pricy, but it is absolutely fabulous, and it's wonderful to go to a pizza place and find gluten free options other than salad! The service is great as well! I once received a slightly burnt pizza (which was still very edible.) The manager noticed, had the staff bake a new pizza, and gave me a few coupons for future visits. I was highly impressed. You'll pay a little more at Mellow Mushroom, but it's absolutely worth it.

Best gf pizza I have found in San Antonio. Hate Stone Oak area traffic but sometimes it's worth the trip.

The pizza was delicious, and they were able to give us veggies for the humus appetizer. However, the gf crust they have is the common 12" thin frozen crust. Which is fine, except when you're charged over $20 for it! They told us that the charge would be the same as a regular medium pizza, but since the regular small we ordered (half of the family are celiacs- half are not) was $15, we assumed that a medium was just a bit more. Our family of 4 paid a bill of $80 for 3 pizzas (1 small, 2 medium) and a humus appetizer! In our opinion it is way over priced for the quality. If they made their own gf crust in-house, it might be worth it. But we can get the frozen crust at Stouts nearby or even Pizza Hut or Dominos. If you're looking for good in-house gf crust, try the Purple Garlic. It's much tastier, cheaper, and the owner goes out of his way to increase his gf menu.

I so dispute the person who spoke negatively about pizza crust. Most places serve up frozen Udi's pizza crust. MM makes there's FRESH in a separate kitchen area and the GF meals are even delivered to guest separate of other guests meals. Staff is fully trained on GF (even the bartender) and the chef himself came out to answer a question on their soup. I have never scene such care to the GF guest! Cudos to MM!!!

Awesome gluten free pizza experience! Great to find a gluten free crust with flavor and texture, instead of gross rice flour crust! Felt confident that my pizza was going to be safe and made correctly!

I personally thought the gluten free crust was good. Service was a bit slow and I'm not sure that have dedicated cooking space.

Gluten free pizza is like eating cardboard. Go for a salad instead

Our new GF crust is also Vegan, and we have stepped it up even further to avoid possibility of cross contamination. Using a custom Smart Flour gluten free/vegan crust now (dropped Still Riding) in order to offer a better pie! All pies are made from isolated ingredients and on a seperate make line/pizza pans. As the owner, please email me with any concerns and I will be glad to help. [email protected]

I had a delicious dairy free and gluten free pizza and did not get sick. Also had New planet Gluten Free beer. Not gluten removed. Brewed gluten free. I was impressed. Edit to add: they had excellent allergy protocols listed on the back of their menu. Only certain toppings are handled under allergy protocols so read the menu carefully.

I’ve had the gf pizza twice, once in the restaurant everything was great and then once delivered, within 30 minutes of eating it I was terribly ill. Not sure what happened it...was the same pizza with same toppings as last time. Thinking there was some cross contamination this time. Super disappointed.

We didn't plan on eating here, but the day got rearranged so we decided to get pizza knowing it was a safe option and there are very little on the parkway. Wish I would have read the reviews. It's me and my kids and they seat us in the bar. There are tons of seats open everywhere else in the restaurant and the bar is empty. Kinda odd. First thing we notice is that every item (reg.pizza, GF pizza and salads) are all $5 more than where we live in Knoxville. But we're there and we're hungry. My daughter and I split a Greek salad and a GF pizza. Salad was good but dressing is very thick. GF crust was undercooked and didn't hold toppings on. Toppings were tasty and better quality than crust. My son ate a traditional crust and said the same, that toppings were good but crust not very flavorful. Interesting since it's not GF but same issue. All in all, it was a decent lunch but awfully expensive.

(Review from a local) Best celiac experience we’ve had at a restaurant ever! They are as good as some Disney restaurants when it comes to allergies!! They have a separate prep space and allergy oven. They use corn masa to roll their regular pizzas instead of flour so airborne gluten isnt too much of an issue. We were able to speak directly with the manager and he made the pizzas himself to ensure no cross contamination and myself and my celiac son felt great after. Also, they carry glutenberg beers for those that like to enjoy a certified gluten free beer with their pizza.

Waiter was very good about letting us know which food was "no gluten ingredients" and which were properly gluten free. Annoyingly GF on menu is not the marking for "free of any gluten". GF pizza was very good and would happily go back.

The pizza was sooo good and the staff was extremely knowledgeable on allergens. I ordered the gluten free pizza with pesto and follow your heart vegan cheese since I have a milk allergy as well. The waitress came out a few minutes later and told me that the pesto had cheese in it so I was able to order something else. I had a great experience plus they have a Rubik’s cube sign on the wall so that is definitely worth checking out!

They clearly take gluten allergies very seriously because they shut down the line and clean it to cook the pizzas separately. They even keep certain ingredients in a separate fridge which is why certain GF ingredients are not labeled as such - because they’re in a fridge with non GF items. I thought that was pretty cool. The one drawback is the time you have to wait for your order, but not getting sick is worth it. Just be prepared to wait and if you’re eating with non GF people just go ahead and let them eat first.

Its expensive for a gluten free pizza...I have Celiac and react strongly when glutened. I never get a reaction, but be careful cause they use paper straws in their drinks and I don't know if they have gluten in them or not as the paste or body of the straw. They are kinda rude whenever asked questions. I just don't use the straws.

We ordered for pick up. They did gluten free really well, and the pizza was pretty good. We had the mighty meat - toppings were delicious. The crust was a little soft, but that is unfortunately common with gluten free. Regardless, it was good and safe, and we'd eat there again.

We had the mighty meat and enjoyed it! Staff were quick to answer all of our questions about gf safety and we felt very comfortable eating here. Our only complaint was the middle of the pizza had crust that was a bit soft but otherwise, for us, the taste was great. Would recommend to others for sure!

The GF pizza used to be a decent size but, unfortunately, they changed it so now the only option is a very small kid-sized pizza. Not at all worth the price, considering it would take two to actually fill me up and I’m a small person!

DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS LOCATION!!! Ordered a plain gluten free cheese pizza through doordash and it looked very much like a regular gluten full pizza but I double and triple checked my receipt and it said the order was gluten free. After eating a piece and having another person taste a regular pizza and mine from this place I called the restaurant and checked to see. They said it was supposed to be a thin crust typical of other restaurants (which it was definitely not). After five minutes on hold to speak with the manager the same lady came back on the phone saying that he was “too busy” and that they could remake it but I would have to go to the store to pick it up and that they couldn’t give me a refund and would have to call doordash to be refunded for their mistake. Definitely will not be ordering again! How can you mess up a clearly labeled gluten free order!!!

Mellow mushroom is always a good, safe chain to go to because they prepare their gluten free pizzas in a separate area (away from all the horrible gluten). The staff always brings the gluten free pizza out separate from the gluten ones to insure no contamination, which I appreciate. Never gotten sick!

The back of their menu has about 2 paragraphs on how the staff is trained in cross contamination and how they prevent that in the cooking process. They were so awesome and great to talk with. They even mark each pizza topping on whether it’s GF or not! They also if your lactose intolerant has AMAZING vegan cheese. It was awesome. Idk if some of the reviews here are older calling it not celiac friendly but I can tell you right now it is.

Got glutened. Yes, pizza places are always risky for celiacs, but given how many other Mellow Mushrooms we’ve eaten at, with no problem, the chain clearly has a system to keep GF pizzas as segregated as possible, and this location is not following it.

Had great service from our server Wed afternoon and he was diligent in explaining the process for the GF pizza. My daughter has Celiac and we explained that she’s extremely sensitive. My daughter asked for bacon on her pizza and our server went back to verify it was separate and gluten free. She enjoyed the pizza and had zero reactions!
