About forty years ago, Mellow Mushroom was a hippie pizza hangout on Spring Street in downtown Atlanta. I may or may not have been there to eat a time or two way back then, LOL. They have served pizza and “munchies” ever since. The menu has included things like Magic Mushroom Soup, Calzones, Salads, Garlic Bread, Cheese Bread, ice cold beer, and of course, pizza. A few years ago they added gluten free pizza crusts. And now, they have added Hamburgers!
Fabgrandpa and I were invited to go over to the Mellow Mushroom in Hiram to take a taste of the new burgers for ourselves. We met with the manager on duty, Zane, who introduced us to our server, Delainie. Zane was so gracious and came by our table several times to make sure our food was just right. And I have to tell you, it was really good.
We started off with the Artichoke and Spinach dip but I forgot to take a picture of it. If you like that kind of appetizer, you will love the one at Mellow Mushroom.
Look at that smile on Fabgrandpa’s face. He loves to eat at Mellow Mushroom. We wen to the one in Oxford, Alabama last week for dinner, and he was smiling just as big then, see:
We met up with our friends, Denney and Elaine. We always have such a good time with them. We just don’t see them often enough. They loved the new hamburgers, too.
Zane brought out one of the Herb Veggie Burgers so I could taste it. It was really good, and I say that even though I have never been a fan of veggie burgers. It was piled high with cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, pickle, and avocado. How could it NOT taste good with all those toppings??
The star of our lunch was definitely the Carnie Pub Burger. This one has a Black Angus Beef Patty, tomato, lettuce, caramelized onions, swiss cheese, and garlic aioli. They do not have gluten free buns. I asked. I ate the burger anyway. I am sure you could order it without a bun, and it would still taste great.
Both of the new Mellow Mushroom Burgers came with a side of roasted red potatoes with caramelized onions. You don’t find that side anywhere else in town. These potatoes were good too.
These potatoes had a really grown up taste, and were garnished with sprigs of rosemary but I think children would like them too. It was a refreshing change from the ever present French fries that come along with a burger.
When are you going to Mellow Mushroom to try out the new burgers? It’s still ok to order a pizza, too! Find a Mellow Mushroom near you here.
