Mellow Mushroom Pizza

If you ever visited us when we lived in Atlanta or Decatur or Athens, Georgia, then you probably shared some Mellow Mushroom pizza with us. Serious Eats recently reviewed our hometown favorite. We were partial to the meatball and mushroom toppings in either pizza or calzone format. We're also huge fans of the pretzels both with marina sauce as an appetizer and with cinnamon and honey as dessert.

Here are two anecdotes to demonstrate how much we love Mellow Mushroom. First, when I was in law school up in Athens and David was in grad school down in Decatur, he ordered out Mellow Mushroom so frequently that when our usual location on LaVista was going to be closed for a week for renovations, they called David at home to give him a heads up. Second, when we traveled to Hilton Head, South Carolina, for Thanksgiving in 2008, we suspected we might be entering the Mellow Mushroom region, so we checked the website, printed out the phone number and directions to the Mellow Mushroom on the island, and called in our order on the way from the airport in Savannah.

Dear Terri,
I am SO jealous! Now my mission to save up enough money to visit you has to include a budget line item for Mellow Mushroom.
