Mellow Mushroom is a place that tourist go as mentioned by others, but bunches of locals go there too. The outside patio is a great place to meet with some freinds, drink, and eat fairly good pizza. Everyone knows, or should know, that it ain't the place to go if you are in a hurry or even lacking patience and tolerance. We like to go on a nice day and take or time and just hang out for a couple hours.
The pizza is as good if not better than Asheville Pizza in my opinion, although I really like both. Both offer tofu as a topping and Mellow Mushroom has tofu hoagies. Get some jerk sauce on/with it if you like spicy. The avacado sammy is good as well.
Besides Pizza, Calzones, salads, and a couple sandwiches they don't have much veggie fare, but it is enough for me to go from time to time. If your looking for that kind of stuff and you are not familiar with the Mushroom you should give it a shot, it can please your carnivore friends also.
Oh yeah... it is a bit spendy. You can easily rack up quite the hefty tab.
patio rocks!, good pizza etc, lots and lots of beer and liquor
pricey, slow, sometimes busy
